Re: Free association and therapy **trigger*** annierose

I have made some odd comments such as "those shoes don't look very comfortable." My T has learned to roll with it.


****This next bit could be triggering****

For instance, I asked her once if she used a curling iron to curl the top of her hair. She's never actually avoided a question I've presented to her, but she was more interested than she might have been before just because of the course of some of the conversations we've had. She said that she doesn't use curling irons because all that heat scares her. I told her they scared me, too and she said, "but you have reason to be scared." I just nodded. Some other T may have taken that first comment I made and thought nothing of it. It was to my credit that she evolved to that degree. I told her once that she should be more willing to see in what directions things go, that she might be surprised--maybe both of us would be. I think she really took that comment to heart. She takes in pretty much everything now.
