Herring or not, I appreciate the Racer Seal of Approval ;-)!!!

I kind of asked him to call me back, because I need to know if he will agree to see me on the new terms (only for meds and occasional evaluations), and I have no appointment coming up with him. If he doesn;t call back by Monday, I will write him a letter, stating how much I have appreciated a lot of things about him. (I wish I had said that on his machine, but I was so focused on making my point unequivocal that I did not)

I'm kind of glad that he hasn't called back yet. I hope that my husband is around when he does, because he has given me a lot of support about this too.

I know that this is a professional relationship, but I still feel all kinds of guilty. I know that that, in and of itself, is something I will have to talk about with a new therapist....the whole overly neurotic guilt thing...

I think I would like to give the former therapist of a friend a try. One thing is for sure: I don't want to feel obligated to a therapist in the future. I know it is really a kind thing of this guy (let's call him Bob) to have let the money thing slide, but, as someone pointed out, money can be a power thing. Accepting charity can make a person feel terribly obligated.

Thank you all so much again.

Diane
