You're going to be OK. Repeat over and over again.

It's amazing that you realize this after such a short time with him. You must have been really ready for this.

While it may feel like how could this be? it can be. You can regress like that and tap into the exact feelings you experienced as a child. Often they come about through flashbacks, but you seem to have been able to let them surface more neutrally, which is a great thing. Don't doubt the feelings, just recognize them and feel them because as you said, you've been intellectualing and using humor to keep them at bay.

Maybe you will experience transference with this doctor, maybe you won't. Try not to worry about it yet. Try not to put up those defenses yet. Your pdoc seems very skilled at dismantling your defenses, but remember to hold onto your self, too, and make sure you have adequate skills in place if tearing down your defenses becomes too anxious for you.

If you do experience transference, you will get past it. I know this from experience. It's not easy, but for some therapeutic orientations, it's a natural part of the the process and you will have your doctor's help getting throught it. Trust, for me, has a lot to do with it.

Just try not to get overwhelmed by the whole thing, although that is easier said than done.

I'm just so impressed at the immediate progress you've made.
