Re: Something about the day after therapy.... Honore

With my new therapist, I guess I have felt that way sometimes and sometimes not. There were times I emailed him that same day, and then wished I had not. Other times, and more recently, I don't feel compelled to email him or talk to him. I know he is there. I don't think I have emailed him in three weeks except to ask for a script for the next time I come in. I wonder why; maybe I am more comfortable with him even if I get upset and still have trust issues.

I know the more I get into really heavy duty stuff, the more I do need some sort of acknowledgement of this, and without asking he almost always comes through. The more he gets to know me, the better he is about this. He is certainly more verbal than most analysts I have known. My T at Menninger's was much less verbal until close to the end of the session when he would come out with some vague, "okay now I really have to think about what you are really saying" type of comment. He would not typically answer my questions of do you like me, do you care about me, do you hate me. Of course to the latter he would chuckle like Santa Claus. That is what he looked like, Santa--white hair, beard and rather heavy set with a belly that bounced when he laughed. Gosh I miss him. Sorry, I digressed.
