My T says that periodically, that I can always lie on the couch, and then of course I make one of my faces, and he laughs. Gee I wouldn't get to see him anymore if I were on the couch. I think I could do it now, but then he is just there. I don't know; I have trouble looking him in the eyes, and so I try to go on the offense by saying "what?" to him, and then say he is frowning or staring or something. It isn't working so well anymore, though, as he puts it back on me now. Probably your T would do that.

The "we are a good match" sounds like your T's way of saying he likes you. They used to always talk that way at Menninger's--looking for the good match. That always meant that the T had to have positive feeling for the patient and feel that she or he could work with the person and help the person. I did not know until last week that my T knows lots of the people at Menninger's and people who used to be there too when they were in Topeka. I got kind of angry with him acting (my perception) like he knew more about Menninger's than I do. But this is my way of putting him at arms length--get mad at him and in essense say don't get too close. But this last time I asked him as I was angry if he had even ever been to Topeka, and he said yes. So, he did know the good days there.

I am not sure I will add a third day at a later date. I will have to see. My insurance does pay for 60 sessions, and so that would be for not very long and then I would be paying the $245 per sesson out of pocket, and I don't think I can afford that unless my husband were to go back to work. I think he plans to do this but wants to wait until next summer. HUM.
