> Anger at least would mean they care enough to be angry.

I was wondering last night if that's why I don't mind anger as much as I would mind if he never got angry... But I don't think I deliberately induce anger in him, because I really don't enjoy it. What I *do* like is when I can get him to drawl. A drawl means I've touched him somehow, that there was an actual connection. The equivilant of looking for the grownups approval and delight, I suppose. I don't remember him drawling lately. D*mned new office. He drawled a lot more in the old one.

I was also thinking last night that I would probably even make Gardenergirl or Daisy's sainted therapist angry. I'm a difficult and demanding therapy client. I can hold two diametrically opposed views at the exact same time and cling with equal stubbornness to both. I'm not shy about saying what's on my mind, while I also cringe and try desperately for approval. I look to him for all the answers given with complete assurance, but am pretty likely to reject any answer he gives me. Most mental health professionals can't stand me.

I'm a lucky therapy client, actually. :)
