    I'm not sure what to think about my appt today. My young parts decided to pay a visit as well and thought it would be funny to hide from my T. She does her thing and allows me to sit in her office and wait. Today though, very last minute, my young parts decided to hide under her desk away from her view point upon entering. She didn't see us and started walking out until they called out and outed themselves. I laughed as well as she until the young parts left and another part used the excuse to stretch their legs. So, post appt opinions and thoughts become obsessions. We are worried now about being spoken too. I know boundries and try my best not to push them but I'm not certain my young do. If there is discussion about it, I know my heart will be broken and disappointed.

    Therapy sounds like a good place for that discussion... As well as to challenge the idea that discussions can't take place without heartbreak & disappointment.

    Maybe even to so far as to bring it up yourself with the point being the ability to talk about it without the doomsday response? The whole "I've been stressing about being spoken to about something, and know my heart will break and et cetera... And I'd like to learn how to have those conversations and not have them gut me."

    So I am not sure here but were you under the table and came out when your therapist entered the room?

    I’m sorry. That sounds like it would be a horrible feeling to have someone take over like that. Gosh. I have wanted to crawl under my therapists desk but it was with the will of an adult mind and feeling in control of my senses. I am sorry that you are in a position that your little side takes over. Wish I had words of wisdom but I am afraid all I can offer is just some good thoughts heading your way that you are able to have some resolve. Sorry!

    Although I am ashamed, I can say when the younger ones do come around, it's usually with innocent fun like any young child. So, it's not terrible but as an adult, it isn't as socially acceptable.

    Maybe you could let your 'young one' come out in scheduled ways? Are you ready for that yet? I walk with my young ones, talk to them in my head, reassure them, let them know I am happy to have them around -- but that it is important for me to make sure they are safe.

    The good thing about T's is that they (the goods ones) get this stuff.
