My T encourages me to write to her if I need to, and I still do on occasion, although that means I have to take valuable talking time for her to read it.

My pdoc is different, however, and I offer this as an alternative way for you to view how you feel about overburdening your T with your writings.

I used to write to my pdoc, but then we had a huge falling out over his response to something I had written, which made me cease writing altogether for a very long period of time.

I got over it (can you tell by my rampant posting in the last 24 hours????), but what really came out of it is that he wants me to talk and not write, that he needs the context of me sitting in front of him in order for him to truly help me. And he was right. It's different when I have to speak about unspeakable things out loud; it's much easier for me to write because I can make it organized and logical. But I lose a lot if I hide behind organized and logical. I needed, he needed, the spontaneity of the spoken word and the unexpected places it often leads us.

But writing is important, in whatever way, shape or form it is helpful to you, so even if she doesn't read anymore, write for yourself. It helps a lot.

Just something to think about,
