Elle I felt so bad for you reading that, wish I could give you a big hug. I know you've invested a lot of time with this person, but maybe you should consider moving onto someone else. I saw a psychiatrist for almost a year. He worked out of his home, and there were constant distractions. He would be eating a bowl of ice cream while I was spilling my guts. The phone would ring right in the middle of our session... and he would answer it Every time. I think the record was 6. He yawned incessantly. He seemed to trail off like I was just rambling about nothing. All of these things were inappropriate and made me feel like he could have cared less. I was a nervous wreck, but one day I addressed my concerns over a letter to him and wondered if I should continue to see him, and to call me. Never called. I finally called him and asked could I at least get more Paxil and he said "I suggest you see your family doctor" , and banged the phone on me.
I know how you feel.
It doesn't sound like your therapist is as much of a jerk as mine was, but something isn't right nonetheless. Please don't take it as a personal assault to your character though, like you're some failure and nobody wants you. You know that's not true. You need to find someone who you can really connect and become totally comfortable with.
Hang in there, things will get better.
