If I remember correctly, you were headed into some pretty hard stuff when the break came. So "reentry" means picking up that flashlight and daring to go down that road again.

I also know, that for me, at least, that I wanted to hear from my therapist two things: 1) I missed you too and 2) I didn't forget you while we were on break. It is really hard to have to ask these things straight out - although I know a very young part "escaped" today and wanted to know if he still believes "her" and if he forgot everything I've told him. He said no, but perhaps it was really hard to reconnect yesterday because I had to forget - it was too hard to hold all my stuff myself - but forgetting is terrifying, it makes me numb and remembering is painful and I want to rage at him. So there is so much conflict.

Didn't you want to simultaneously throw your arms around her and yell, "don't leave me ever again!" and cross your arms, turn your back and sulk - "you weren't there when I needed you."

Therapy is so hard. The second day is better though. Getting back into the grove just takes time.
Hang in there!
