Daisy - my T tells me that the pace of therapy is very important and something that she needs to evaluate all the time. Part of that is knowing, I guess, when to push and when not to. We've worked out a deal that I can refuse to talk about something that comes up and she'll back off if I make it clear enough to her. Generally we'll talk around it and "it" eventually comes out. If it's important enough and I really can't deal with it in a particular session, then it sort of weighs on me until I am ready to discuss it, or until I have to.

I know this is tough, and that you place a lot of trust in your T's skill and judgment. FWIW you have always struck me as a person of particular strength. I know you can do this even if you decide that you really can't attack it right now.
