I think that asking to know their feelings can be a Pandora's Box-question. I wonder if many people have got a respone that fully satisfied them. Cause what are the odds that a T would give that "perfect" answer (whatever that is for each person). Then you'd have to be prepared to be disappointed, hurt, or scared either way. That's how it's been for me. One liked me too little, one loved me too much.

I wonder if it's better for us to not know anything?

I think it's weird seeing the next patient too. It doesn't happen often with me due to his scheduling, but lately it's happened 3 times. I always have to look at them sideways, trying to be subtle, to see if THEY are staring at me. I worry they're judging me. I wish I knew if they felt as awkward watching me come out, as I do seeing them waiting to go in. Sometimes I wish I had the opportunity to talk to one of them for a moment (away from the office of course). Other than that, I've worried before that my T could dislike other clients (cause I know what that's felt like). I have this need to know that everyone who's in therapy is being treated gently and kindly.

Hope you're not as sad today Joni.
