This session with your T was particularly interesting for me to read given my history of emails with my T. I suppose our situations are different and clearly our Tís practice differently. I do very much like your T and the way you discuss things. Iím still going back & forth on how I feel about having email responses rescinded. I do think heís kind and good, and perhaps his reasons for that should be good enough. Sometimes they are and sometimes they arenít. I think our relationship has pivoted, possibly in a good way, with my being able to bring more into sessions rather than keeping our relationship in emails. But I do go back to feeling upset about it from time to time because itís hard when I remember that I used to get replies, but now I donít, no matter what (except for scheduling). And reading your discussion with your T about all this sort of stirs it all up for me and makes me realize Iím not quite over it yet. So thanks for making me think.
