Hi Beardy,

Wanted to let you know I took your advice in a way and talked to my shrink (therapist) today about how I felt therapy wasn't helping or that I didn't want to go when depressed, etc. It was the best session in a month at least. One of those heart wrenching things where you leave feeling faint but somehow convinced you're getting better.

I feel a lot more like therapy with this guy will work after today, that I just need to be brutally honest all the time. I've been too polite (not stopping him when he starts telling me things I know and agreeing too easily to things I don't believe). Not all my fault though, he says he needs to try harder to be practical and behavior oriented for me (something he's not used to). That its easier for him to analyze than not. Being ADD I wander and bring up lots of truly irrelevant things and that's a challenge for him but he should be able to handle it and often just doesn't.

I came away challenged with actual homework, which I'd been asking for over and over -- just not loud enough or he didn't listen. And the practice at being assertive today was really good for me.

I doubt this will help you find a topic for tomorrow but just wanted to say thanks for responding to me a few days back.

Plus I'm happy reading a David Sedaris book which is just so so funny. So a well spent day.

take care and sleep well,
