Palliative Care Therapy

"If you died.."

"When, you mean..."

"Well. When, but let's stick with if, OK?"


"If you die, what do you think he would say?"


"Hmm. Nothing at all?"


"Why do you feel that?"

"I just know. What is there to say? I... hmm, I don't know. Yeah. "

"What are you thinking?"

"What's the point? If there was anything to say, why not, you know... when I could listen?"

"Would you listen? Or react, though? From what we talked about last session, I mean."

"I don't know."

"But you think he wouldn't say anything."

"Yeah. Because he doesn't say stuff, anyways."

"Then, let's ask this: what do you think he would think?"

"He.. would ... think ... I don't know, he would probably think 'Oh well' and go on with his life."

"Do you really feel that? Or are you transferring feelings again?"

"There are no feelings in this case."

"You seem to be feeling a lot, right now. Hey, it's OK, take a breather."

"I'm sorry, I didn't mean to ..."

"You don't have to apologize. Come on, have some water."


"Yes to what?"

"I really feel that."
