This is a really weird question… to answer I mean?
Especially due to the phrasing… “she sort of gave up on you”
i guess you wrote that because I posted that she wouldn’t see me until I did PHP and isn’t seeing me now? (feel free to message again if I’m wrong)
and I guess I view things differently.
Does it upset me - to a degree - that she sees others people in the program I’m in, but won’t see me… yes (I think partially because one of the two says things about her I don’t agree with), but that doesn’t alter my view of her.
I’ve known my therapist since March 2010. I don’t really feel like one decision. One action. One anything should completely alter your opinion of someone if you have so much history with them. I think sometimes it does alter things slightly, but not completely.
and I think it’s also about perspective. (sorry I’m being long-winded - but I think this part is important). Her perspective and role as a clinician is vastly different than mine as a client/patient. She formulates her opinions and decisions based on her education, knowledge, and what she thinks will be best for me… If you aren’t willing to trust those things/qualities then why are you seeing that person or paying that person?
I trust her and i think she does care.
To sum it up: I don’t dislike her… and don’t think I ever could
She’s saved my life… and may be still saving it
