Can we discuss the nightmares?

“Can you talk about it now?” my therapist asks, “When you open your mouth, do words come out?”

“I don’t want to go back there again,” I admit, “to talk about it feels like time traveling.”

“I don’t blame you, but clearly, it needs to be revisited.”

I look away. I disagree.

She asks, “or would you rather do it through your dreams? Because either way, its coming. Or through your blackouts, your relationships? Think about it.”

I do. I agree. Still, I say nothing. It wasn’t a successful session.

“Ok, we’ll try again next week.”
