A joke my T told me...

Posted by Wittgenstein on September 5, 2007, at 16:49:32

On Monday my therapist told me a joke - it was a very difficult session for me and actually the humour worked a treat in bringing me back down to earth again.

A theme of the session was the way my mother concealed the abuse that went on - how things on the outside were at odds with the reality on the inside, and also her failure to acknowledge her abusive behaviour.

So he rather fittingly told the story of 3 mothers each trying to convince the others that her son loved her more.

The first mother said "My son loves me so much that he brings me a lovely bunch of flowers each week".

The second mother said "Well my son loves me so very much that he takes me out to dinner every weekend".

The third mother, by this point looking rather smug with herself, said "Well my son loves me so so much that he visits someone 5 times a week, to simply lie down and talk all about me!".

Have your Ts ever told you jokes?

Grin.

I told my t a joke that a neighbor (who is a t) told me.

Two therapists work across the hall from each other. One evening they meet in the hallway as they are locking up their offices. One therapist says to the other, "I don't know how you do it. Every evening when I see you leave, you are all chipper, in good spirits, with so much energy. And here I am exhausted, heavy hearted, head lowered. How can you remain so happy listening to your client's problems all day?"

The other therapist responded, "Oh, you listen?"

I dont think mine has ever told a joke. Come to think of it, he is too darn serious! (I need to find something wrong with him!)

I liked your joke.

Hi Annierose

I know it's all in good fun, but I didn't like your joke. :(

Must be because I have fears that my T doesn't really listen to me, don't know.

No offense.
