#PTSD I am going to therapy. I have seen probably at least 7 different therapists throughout my life. Currently, I am seeing a lady that I really like. In fact, I wish I had found her sooner. I have had a lot of “firsts” with this therapist like sharing something with her I have never told anyone about.
Just recently, I have noticed that i feel like I am two different versions of myself: adult me and child me. Whenever we meet, my mental state feels very childlike. It is hard to explain. I get nervous and stutter sometimes. I have NEVER felt like a child with a therapist. I don’t stutter usually. Is this my inner child coming out in therapy because she finally feels safe enough to do so? Do I just roll with it? How do you tell the difference between them? I am confused as to why I feel this way and why has this never happened before. I am planning to discuss this with my therapist of course. Has anyone experienced this before?
