Yes, I've done it. I have a doll that represents Sad Dinah, the 10-14 year old with all the problems. I used to bring her all the time.

My therapist of course never offered to hold a doll!! But he was ok with my bringing her and using her to try to get in touch with my feelings.

Once he made me mad somehow, and somehow it involved the doll. I can't remember now; dissociation is great. But I do remember I threw her down in the parking lot and banged her against the wall. She's mostly ok, but I never brought her back to therapy.

I've brought pictures of young me, or my dogs, though.

Right now I really really really want to bring in my only video of the love of my life, a little teensy tinsy dog. So much so that I have been trying to figure out how to make it portable enough to see. I think I finally have a way, but I'm afraid to bring it to him. I'm afraid he'll say something like "So why are you bringing this to me" and I'll have to slug him.

I can't imagine why it's so important to me right now. He's seen photos of her. He's seen photos of her and me together ("you used to be attractive!!"). But right now it seems absolutely imperative that he sees her as I saw her. I don't know why. Harry's getting closer to death, but shouldn't I want to bring in photos of him instead?
