Dinah,
I haven't read all the posts in this thread yet, but what you said below really caught my eye.

"in general there is a time lag between what I realize about myself and what he realizes about me."

Wow. You are so much more self-aware than I am. (I mean that sincerely, really.) True, sometimes I figure something out first and then explain it to my T or pdoc, and sometimes they agree, and sometimes they don't, and sometimes they get me to see it completely differently than I'm seeing it, or they add something to it that makes the whole so much more powerful than the single piece I've discovered. For me, that's the best kind of therapy.

But I never thought about it in the way you've described, and I do that a lot too. And I'm fierce when I'm defending what I think about myself.

I'm not explaining myself correctly. Sorry. I do understand how my T can tiptoe around something when I wish she'd be more direct when I know I'm right, but on the other hand, I have this hard charging pdoc, who sometimes I wish would be more careful.

Sorry to get off track. Just keep figuring it out--you will, that's your pattern.
