> I think Dinah is right about those in short term therapy. And I think everyone is right that many people keep their feelings out of the room, and a lot of therapists never ask. I've talked about this a lot with my therapist. I wondered once how these feelings could not get in the way of the therapy if they weren't talked about. He said they might, but lots of times clients just quit because it is too overwhelming. Or many therapists don't work with the feelings but still a lot of therapy gets done.

I can't even imagine that. If my T didn't work with the feelings I have, I imagine I would be so confused. I would never understand why I was having the feelings and then I would have to quit.

> When I was talking about feeling like a therapy cliche, he did say that this doesn't happen as much as I imagined it did. I don't know whether he meant clients confessing their feelings or having the feelings. I guess I'll have to ask.
> I hope if you get clarification you'll share. And if he tells you what to do about these feelings, you'll share that too. I'm still looking for the definition of "working them through." Through what?

I wish he would tell me what to do about these feelings. My guess is, though, that he won't and maybe wouldn't even know what to tell me to do. It's that magic wand again. Where did he put it?
