I can't really add anything here different from what others have said. My therapy seems to move fairly seamlessly from weightier topics to sessions where I just need support for something more pressing. Those weightier topics are always there to get back to.

I can also empathize alot with what you're feeling about your husband. I went through a heart scare with my husband about a year ago. It was difficult for me because it got to be so easy for me to say or do the wrong thing and then be accused of not being sensitive or caring enough. And it's so easy to feel that you have to subsume all of your needs to the person with the actual physical problems, aside from feeling that you have to hold things together for them and for the rest of the family.

Therapy was absolutely essential - it was the one and only place where I could talk about my needs and, frankly, where I could complain about my husband. I didn't realize that it was serving that purpose at the time, but looking back now, I can see that it provided a much needed outlet.

Also, think of therapy as the one place where you don't have to maintain the veneer of superwoman - in addition to here of course.
