Dinah, I will also never stop reading - I might read less. My therapist was careful not to tell me not to read, she simply said it was “not helpful”. But that to me sounds like a prohibition, which means I’ll probably have to go underground.

I also feel I need to read because it feels as if my T is manipulating me - It is great that you can trust yours not to manipulate. I find it very difficult to trust my T at all. Sometimes I wonder why we bother with therapy - it all seems to revolve around learning to trust this person. Do I really need to spend so much money to know I can trust her? (Sorry, I’m just being facetious, I know all the arguments. It’s just that whenever I try to analyze anything in my therapy it invariably comes back down to the issue of trust. It seems as if you have overcome this hurdle, Dinah, or am I wrong?) We don’t speak much about the events of my days, also because I see her too often - we concentrate a lot more on feelings, which like you I battle to identify.
