Maybe almost as much as being in person. Maybe even more, because it's easier to feel protected and be more brave with my words. Uh oh. Maybe that's something I should think more about.

Peg, I just wanted to add here that this is true of me, too. In my early years with my T, I'd sit in silence during the session and then call her between to tell her things. At one point, it got so bad that she looked at me during one of our completely silent sessions and said, "Would it help if I picked up the phone?"

It is much easier for me to say the really hard things over the phone. I think because I always, always worry (even now, after 21 years and with lots of evidence to the contrary) that my T will have a look of impatience or disgust or something on her face when I tell her something hard.
