Racer,
Did you ever see Bull Durham? "Don't think, Meat, just throw." Well, dear, don't think, just GO. Let it flow as best as you can and listen to your gut. The more you think about it, the more those goblins win. They want you to think twice (or thrice, or what comes next? fource? twentice?) because the more you think about it, the longer they get to stay behind that door.

I absolutely agree that talking with your new T about how difficult it is to trust is probably the most important thing you can talk about in the first session. If I were your T, I absolutely would want to know about this. Otherwise, I might be beating my head against the wall, wondering why it wasn't working. Not trusting right away is not equal to not forming a relationship. It is a continuum, not an outcome. So please allow yourself and your new T to work from where you are at.

Don't think, Meat! Just go!

Praying you get this in the spirit it was intended,

gg
