Oh, I think I see then. I don't think that replaying the events in such a direct way has been my experience, though I wonder that in my replaying of the sessions if within the attachment relationship and feelings that sessions evoke from the past, if replaying a session (as I do and as Emmanuel alluded to doing) is not an implicit way of replaying the events that led up to therapy.

But, it sounds like you are replaying them in an explicit, direct way. I am not sure how typical that is-- it probably varies but I imagine that especially in cases of trauma and intense events in your life, therapy can bring back those experiences very vividly. I would it think it is important to share that with your therapist, if you haven't already.


Also, thanks for the thoughts about it being early in therapy. Someone once told me that it sounded like I had had a lot of therapy, implying that I should be all better by now. But thanks for the affirmation-- I don't know how long is "long" or "early"-- I guess it depends on the person too.
