I think I know what you mean about the asking. It is Ok to ask and you should, because then your friends, your husband and your therapist don't have to guess.

But occasionally something just gets given, and when it is the right thing, at the right moment, yes...it is very healing. There have been two stand out times like this for me with my therapist. It isn't that he isn't gentle and wonderful most of the time. But sometimes, I realize that he has just done something for me that no one ever did before. Something that most kids get to experience a lot -- and I never, ever did. Like being told "you are totally safe. Go back to sleep. I'm right here." It touches something deep inside, which is also profoundly sad.

So I think I understand. But I'll also say, it is OK to ask for these things too.
