Dinah,

This sounds to me like a simple case of miscommunication. That is all. Your therapist should have handled it better. I'm sorry he didn't. We all make mistakes at times. And it sounds like your therapist didn't handle himself well in this situation. There was a lack of communication and your therapist blew it out of proportion. That's a shame.

The fact that he said you are annoying at times is sad. But I'm proud of you for having the courage to ask him. I'd never be able to ask my therapist that. I'm afraid that he would in fact say "Yes Karen, you are very annoying." I'm sorry that he said that to you.
But remember he is human. Is it possible he said it out of anger. He was upset with you at the time and that anger could have been clouding his judgement. I'm sure he couldn't find you overly annoying, he has after all been your therapist for quite a while. If he found you too be very annoying, do you think that he would continue to be your therapist for so long?

You've had a rough couple of days. And that also clouds your judgement. When someone upsets you, you start to see the negative in everything about yourself. Your husband loves you for the wonderful person you are. And your son loves his beautiful mother, and needs her to be there for him. You don't want to run away. You want to say there and heal. Not only for yourself, but also for your wonderful family and lovely dogs. Hang in there girl. We love you on the boards and I can tell you from my personal experience I have NEVER EVER once found you to be the slightest bit annoying!!! I promise!!!
