Default In Session Today: Part VI

Well, looks like we need a new IST (Which rhymes nicely with "what have I missed" but I'll spare you all the poem).
Anyway...

Here is a place to talk about what happened in your therapy session (or via email/text/phone with your T too)

Everyone is welcome to write about anything that has happened in therapy recently, be it sad, scary, confusing, funny, silly or anything in between.

When this thread tradition began, wasnt it understood that responses were discouraged? If so Id like to suggest that understanding return. People can start a thread if they want responses, or they can say in their post whether or not they want them.

People often feel vulnerable when posting here. Let them deal with responses only if they want them.

Aw, thanks. They'll return--I just couldn't write about this session because of what it was about (see: closed thread).

I think that was the case for Dear T, not sure for this one. But I agree that it might be good if posters say "no responses please" or "responses welcome." Maybe the rule being "no responses" unless the poster says it's welcome? Like default is no response. (Or "Please PM me if you have response.") I certainly don't want what happened with me to discourage people from posting--I love reading about other people's sessions.

Your write ups both helped me understand therapy when I first started and sparked me to join PC. They're so well-written and genuine. I hope you will continue to craft them. I look forward to them.

I think not having people constantly respond to things would be nice as well. If somebody really wants comments they can still put a "feel free to respond", but overall I think no responses would be better. Like that people don't feel that they'll have to read how other people disagree with whatever they were saying and so on.
Or maybe since responses initially were not really the issue at all in the old thread: not having discussions about things that are off topic. I think something like 'that was a good session write up' is okay. But having it develop into a three page discussion where people only talk about one persons therapy is not really the idea of this thread I think. If it's not possible to implement a 'no large discussions' (where large would have to be defined appropriately), then no responses by default would be better in my opinion.

I think that's why we'd need some sort of 'no huge discussions' rather than a 'no replies at all'. It's totally fine for you to say something, but then other people had to start making a huge deal out of it and it continued for three pages, where really it should have been 'hey this bothers me' - 'okay, sorry, deleted' - end of discussion.
