Those icky topics in threapy

Posted by Wittgenstein on September 12, 2007, at 5:15:08

Sex, sexuality, intimacy, body image...

I've avoided them long enough but sooner or later I'm going to have to 'go there'. Eeks!

I sent my T a letter 2 weeks ago touching on some of my issues with body image, feminimity and my fear of being 'just like my mother' but now he wants me to talk about it. I'm so prudish and embarrassed and it feels plain weird to talk about it with him - or well anyone for that matter.

You all seem so much braver than me!

How did you make this step? Was it such a big deal for you? How did you push yourself to talk openly about these difficult topics? He says I have to try and step a little out of my comfort zone - push back my boundaries - but this is a lot out of my comfort zone :(

I'm getting anxious about going to therapy - before Friday's session I threw up and yesterday's session was useless, the whole day I felt highly anxious, shaky, dizzy, nauseous - detached. Could this all be a response to my fear of talking about these topics?
