Good to hear from you, Daisy. I think it's wonderful that you led those groups while you are in the middle of your own private, powerful emotional struggle. Even if you didn't do your absolute best, it sounds like you certainly did fine. It's funny about the zipper, too- something a bit light-hearted to share.

I knew that yur therapist thought the way mine does; I always love reading your posts, as they are fascinating, as well as very helpful to me. I think it's wonderful how flexible and available he is, and a real accomplishment to be able to continue the work by phone. I've never done that, and don't think it's something my T. does.

Hoever, in the phase of the work we've entered now, I see him EVERY day. This allows us to go to much deeper levels, and to keep them out there until the next time. It's very exhausting (not tio mention expensive), but seems so worth it- probably the only way for someone like me to dare to open up this much.

As to your question- the times of turning away to the wall are quite brief- a few minutes at most. He is not silent then; he very gently asks what happened just then to make the little girl, or the older one turn away and start to sob. He often asks which one is feeling so awful. In a few moments or minutes. *we* are talking again. I like very much how much he talks- interacts with the various parts of me. That helps so much.
