There must be something in the air.

During our difficult session last night, one of the (many) things my T said that I didn't quite agree with is that she thinks I've been so freaked out the last few months because I don't need her like I used to and it scares me to death.

I really don't think that's it. I have readily acknowledged that there are many areas of my life I seem to (finally) have control over and I haven't been creating drama in those areas so that it seems like I need her. But I think she is glossing over the specific areas (actually mostly one area) where the need is still acute. And that is all related to my feeling safe and/or possible csa. What I told her last night was that it was true that I mostly don't need her the way I used to, but that needing her is not a linear thing. Just because I mostly don't need her doesn't mean I never need her. And she needs to step up to the plate when I'm in one of those places. I think the problem is that *she's* not recognizing those places anymore, even with cues from me.

So I basically have a big nothing of worth to contribute to this conversation. I just wanted to throw this in the mix.

It's been a bad week...
