Maybe you should be honest. Tell her that you feel shy and like you are five years old. That is a way to start. Another thing that you could do is make a list of things that you would like to talk about
and carry it with you.
When she asks you a question, does your mind go blank? If so, tell her that too. Can you just not think? Tell her that too. Tell her everything, are you nervous? Tell her.
You have to keep the lines of communication
open and talkt to her, or you aren't going to get any better. If you aren't answering her questions, then what can she do? She can't read your mind. You really have to try hard to do this. It isn't easy, but it does help. You will learn that you are only human, just like the rest of us. We make mistakes, we screw up, we feel low self esteem, we do a lot of things. We are just people. And we understand where you are coming from. Don't give up on therapy. I go and now it is so easy. You can do this, I know...
