You need to go.

I recently went though a time when I had nothing to say. He had indicated to me that he wanted me to be more spontaneous and less planned. And that threw me for a loop. After a couple of weeks (3/week) of talking about the fact that I didn't know what to talk about, we finally got to what needed to be talked about. I'm trying to remember exactly how it happened. I ended up being really upset, but not knowing why and he gently asked about my associations at that time - when I had felt that way in the past. So I told him about an old boss of mine - a very painful story. And it was directly related to the not knowing what to talk about scenario.

So keep going and keep trying. Try talking about why it is so hard to talk (that is SUCH a boring topic!!!!!).

And the fact that you talk about your family interactions in this post makes me think that that could be related. So maybe talk about how that makes you feel like a failure. Maybe you don't want to talk because you are afraid that you will say something else that makes you feel like a failure?

We had asparagus with dinner tonight... What did you have? (The rest of the dinner wasn't something I want to admit to publically)
