I have just started opening up to my therapist after 4 months of beating around the bush and trying to pretend like nothing happened to me. I feel so emotionally numb about my father's abuse. It is disturbing because I know that I need to feel the pain and hurt to overcome what my father did to me. I really like my therapist and he is understanding and compassionate. He thinks that I may be disassociating. Does anyone have any suggestions for how to start feeling?
