Actually, you make an excellent point, Daisy. I hadn't thought of that.

In her defense, though, she said in the first conversation that it would be difficult for her to see me tomorrow but that if I "needed" to see her, she could make it happen, and when I called her back, I said "I would really like to," but that it could also wait and I didn't want to put her out. So, I intentionally gave her an out. Which makes it less shifty, right?

I guess the part that's not so great is the "it's difficult but if you need me I'll make it happen." She should either be available or not. Hm? I dunno. I'm confused. What's she doing to me? What's going on here?


> I'm glad you are OK with the No. I have to say though, in reading your posts, that the back and forth stuff *isn't* really holding the boundaries because they keep shifting. I realize that I am slow to trust and to ask for help but, if I had even a hint that I was making it difficult for my Therapist, I would shut down. And have.
