Thanks for the follow up. I'm glad it went so well. So the next time you have a hard question or thought in therapy, remember that despite the difficulty in getting the question out in the open with your therapist, he will listen attentively and reply with kind words. For some of us, that is an opposite experience than what we grew up with.

I don't know my therapist birthday but I have a good guess. So on her "guess" birthday, I made sure I was especially nice and kind to her. So I do understand when you related your story about looking back at the date and realizing that you had a hard session. But remember that your therapist doesn't judge you as harshly as we judge ourselves. He probably didn't say to himself, "Wow Lady Belle ruined my birthday." Instead he probably thought, "Lady Belle was having a hard day today. I hope she feels better next time we meet."
