Hi Marie
I am in therapy because my map of the world doesn't work all that well. Lots of things confuse me. Connecting the emotional dots of what is going on around me and what I feel on the inside can be two totally different things. My way of dealing with this made me miserable and frustated.

The whole trust issue is a huge one for me. And when I do manage to say something my t is terrific BUT then more feelings try and connect and not just in her office... Ugh!!!!! I believe more talking and therapy is what will ultimately make life better for me. Of course somedays I do NOT agree with that thought at all.

I was sure my T knew what was going on. Trouble is that put her on a pedestal. A clinical pedestal where my feelings would have knocked her off and I didn't want to do that. (Ok still don't!!)She assures me that she will keep listening to me. What ever I want to say. Therapy is not about making her happy. Or presenting a nice neat version of life that she can hmm on! (ok I'd like that too!!)

I think Therapy is like learning about electricity. It is powerful and dangerous but try living without it. You need to know what you are doing with it. And you have to trust the electrician. One day you are going be with those switches on your own. It is the electricians job to make sure the wiring is safe. It is your job to let the electrician know where you need the switches and the power outlets...

It is ok to speak

Keep hanging in there
