thanks, karen. yeah, that's what i was planning to do with my therapist. i've never called her on the w/e before or asked about it, so i don't know if she has a policy.

as to my mom, i think it's pretty hopeless. she was really about as awful as i could ever have imagined. the last time she attacked me like this it took about 4 years to begin to trust her again, and now she's destroyed that trust. i don't think i want anything to do with her. it's her loss, really, because she's of no use to me. she's a childish, pathetic, stupid woman. and i'm her only child. and she has no husband. so she's really an idiot for burning her bridges with me. but i'm not going to forgive her because she will never apologize for what she's done. she only can see herself as a victim.

i don't really want to talk about that though. i was posting about my feelings about my t. my mother is much less important to me.

I always try my best to heal hurt feelings, especially with those I love dearly.... Just a bit of advice..

> Now, about your therapist... Have you ever called her on the weekend? Have you discussed the weekend calling policy? I'd take the email as a sign that it's her SOP to not call clients on the weekend, not just you in particular. On the bright side, at least she emailed you back to let you know she wouldn't be calling.
