The T always looks at me in the beginning of my session and says, "Okay, what are we NOT talking about today?" She does this because I have a tendency to say, "I can't talk about that today. It upsets me." I am trying really hard to face my emotions, my fears and my past, so I am working on being more open. But it is hard.

On my visit last week, in her effort to help me, she gave me the assignment of writing a letter to the "hero" cousin I have talked about on MS. Just to remind, he was the one who was killed in the car accident when I was 5. Anyone have a suggestion on how to start this piece of writing. What should I say? It sort of scares me not knowing what emotions may come forth or what words will fall on the screen.
For now we see through a glass, darkly.
