Seems my last several have been a lot like that. Sometimes the whole session, sometimes only a part of it. But the sadness, and what for me always seems like a hole in my heart...sort of an emotional "sucking chest wound," lingers on for hours - or a day or two.

I can function, but the sadness is right there underneath the surface. It must be grief, although I don't always get right away what I'm mourning over.

B2, you really gave me an idea...that we could just be releasing the feeling, in general, of grieving for ourselves because of going through losses and anxiety and separating from people and being abused by people (for me, only as as adult...but they still wounded my spirit by being callous and horrible to me) - all of it. Before, I've always tried to pinpoint one thing, one event, one moment each time this awful sadness comes, but maybe I don't need to do that.

It is okay to grieve for *all* or *every* past hurt and the suffering that went along with living through all of them, isn't it? Wow..that helps me to think of it that way. thanks, B2 and sleepygirl...for this thread.
