I think your insight that this type of emotional detachment precedes a depressive episode is important. I know you will pay attention to that. This is a difficult time "breaking in" a new T. Can you talk to her about your detachment? And let her know what you know from your past? Maybe she can help you find a way to connect again. Pegasus offered some good suggestions, and I know you have heard my favorite before (aaagh, not the third chair!). You might also try scanning your body and asking yourself what you feel in your body. From there sometimes you can connect with an emotion.

Please be kind and gentle with yourself. It sounds like you are at a tenuous point, and I am sending you gentle, non-intrusive hugs and positive energy to help hold you on the right side of the depression fence.

Take care, sweets.
