Thank you ShortE -

Re: your birthday ... Run to camp comfort and join me in the round room so you can lock the door and turn up the music :)

Your words (and everyone's elses) have been very comforting. I think babble spared my husband all this therapy-speak. Tonight at "family dinner #1", my sister-in-law and I were privately talking about therapy (in general, not like here). She's in therapy, and told me that she had a phone session prior to the day's activities. I shared with her that I was having some difficult sessions, centering on a dream. My husband was nearby, but I didn't think he was listening. He came over and put his arm around me, "why didn't you share your dream with me, or that you were upset?". I didn't think he liked hearing about dreams and digging up past wounds. Surprised me, even after 14 years of marriage. I may share the dream with him tonight. It'd be interesting on his take. He is rather reflective.

"My T has had to prove to me again and again that he isn't going to hurt me when I'm in that vulnerable place. The habit of expecting to be hurt can be old and very deep."
--- so true. My T keeps going over this point over and over. I just expect people to react a certain way, assuming the worse. Although I don't think it's a global response, something sets me off, a pause, a furrow in the brow --- that sets my "WARNING! DANGER!" alarm system in play.

Animals certainly bring a smile to my face. Same with my children sleeping.

I don't know much about your T situation. What is your T's orientation? And how long have you been with him?
