i don't know if therapy is to blame... perhaps because i have better coping skills, or maybe the awareness that i do it, so i try harder not to? also, my therapist seems kind of pushy about me not doing it... to the point that she will say that maybe i should leave... end the session if i'm not going to participate. it was only the year or so before i started therapy that i knew there was a name for what i did. (i thought i was only nuts and asked repeatedly if i was crazy) i know that my preference would be to spend the entire hour in my therapists office dissociating.often times only the fear that we might talk about something difficult will trigger this. i always am THRILLED to be there (to see her, hug her, etc) and nervous at the same time. i forget sometimes that i'm not there to love and be loved up. i hate it that i have to work and can't just enjoy an hour of hand holding, etc. the relationship drives me nuts but i can't imagine my life without her in it.
