> Are my expectations too high? Arent the Ts supposed to make it all better, like NOW?? :-)

OK, your expectations are too high! You now it can’t happen NOW! But seriously, you’re asking a very important question.

> Ok Im not sure whats going on but it seems that T doesnt know what to say to me. its cbt, so what is supposed to happen when you say something to T? Shouldnt they respond relatively soon? I find I say things and then there are these ridiculous silences where I feel like I need to say something enlightening or im to answer my own statement/question. Help please?! This isnt psyhcoanalysis where silenes are normal :-(

I think silences are normal in CBT too. Sometimes therapists might be silent if they’re waiting for you to say more, especially if they think you might have more to say. And sometimes people do answer their own statements and questions. I’ve done that many times!

If you’re concerned about it, talk to your therapist. I guess I’d be more concerned if I thought my therapist didn’t understand me… but that’s just me.
