Dinah,

You didn't hurt me. Really. I didn't take it personal. It is an important subject. My analytical brain understands the cause and effect. It is my younger sides that are all screaming that the body response is just, well, wrong! An old tape, I'm sure.

I think you have a very clear understanding of yourself and how you work. It sounds exactly right that if you are ultra sensitive to so many things that you would be sensitive to arousal as well. I don't think your therapist was just trying to make you feel better. I think for you this is perfectly normal. Normal is a stupid word anyway -- what is "typical" for you is what is important. Changes to each person's typical is what alerts us to pay attention.

And I think you are also right that on this board we tend to look at things as if we can control our responses (or should?) -- instead of it being "just" a physiological thing. I think that is why I struggled so much with starting medication. In my heart of hearts I still think I shouldn't need them -- but I think it is perfectly fine for others to take them, necessary even! Go figure...

I definately think I'm talking about how I might feel about my therapist and you are talking about a physical sensation. Very different things! I can see that, I just can't unlink things for myself.

I know I'm making it harder than it needs to be. I just can't figure out how to accept that this is coming up for me right now.

I feel like I'm not making any sense...
