additionally, i become concerned that the issues i'm talking through with my
therapist are pretty stock; that they just offer further testament that i'm not
a particularly special person. i would like to believe this is more nonsense in my
head, and another reason i needed to see someone of this profession in the first
place. but if that's true, i can't explain this: there are times when i will
be discussing a dream i've had or a fear i'm experiencing and my therapist will
just stare at me for a while, then shake her head dismissively and say, "well, duh!"
is that rude? it is, isn't it?
