I've been in therapy for two years, with two different therapists, and one thing that's remained absolutely consistent throughout both experiences was my inability to talk. I often end up throwing the ball in their court, forcing a change of subject, giving one-word answers... and now I'm moving onto a new therapist and it's talk therapy. And I don't talk. I can think of many reasons that I might not be talking (nothing to say, too scared, not bothered by my past), but none of that ever gets me to a point where I can make words come out of my talky hole. I can go in there prepared to talk, and still end up being unable to talk. I'm not naturally a talkative person as it is. I'm very quiet, I'm a listener... but when I enter the therapy doors it's amplified and I suddenly turn mute. I can't imagine I'm the only person who's run into this problem. So, for others like me... how did you talk?
