hi annierose,

The therapy break was mostly good, I think. I was so busy that I didn't have much time to dwell on anything. And also, for one of my classes I had to be a client at our counseling lab, so I did have some therapy. The student I had as a counselor was pretty good. But, you know, it's not the same as my regular therapy with my long term T. For one thing, it's taped and viewed by other students in the practicum class, of whom I knew quite few. So, what I was willing to talk about was a bit limited. It was pretty helpful for letting off some steam about a few things, though.

But I had to keep a list of all of the things I wanted to talk about when I came back to real therapy. Otherwise I would have exploded with anxiety. Plus at first I had this conviction that my T was angry at me for taking a break. It still niggles at me a little. That's on the list to talk about. Strangely I didnt' miss her much. That's another thing to talk about . . . maybe. I've always been ambivalent about having a less intense relationship with her than with my previous T.

So, basically, it turned out to be doable, but I'm really glad to be going back. Thanks for asking.
