Firstly, yay! somebody reads my posts!

Ok, so now on to the awkward silences bit. As you could tell from my post, these are often an issue for me with my T. If things go silent for a while we often do this looking down then looking up and half smiling at each other, like we know what's going on. If it goes on longer I'll either ask her what she's thinking or comment on some feature of her room I've been noticing (yesterday it was a strange bit of a painting).

Silences don't tend to be helpful for me, I just drift off into a world of nothingness. But in a semi-complementary way T sometimes says that she just needs some time to take in what I have just said and that my brain must work faster than hers does! Really it's just that I don't have the energy to think.
