Rod,

I've had a similar experience with "watching" someone else's therapy journey...my son's. It is complicated but he was so freaked out when he started he often asked me to sit in because I was his "memory box" and he used me to prime the pump. This was an effective way to get him to look at what was going on and once "we" told the story, he would work on anxiety around it with his therapist.

Problem was, for me, as an observer, all hell broke loose inside me. There are a million parallels, even my therapist comments on how "interesting" it is that we are walking such similar paths in trying to try resolve our inner turmoil and grief.

I was very much the adult until the child inside broke free. Completely uncontrollably. Now the struggle is to help that child grow up and integrate with the adult. Sorry, can't do it without therapy. Because I feel like I'm finding my way back to the place you are suggesting we start from.
