Thanks guys, very helpful insights. I'm glad I was specific about some instances instead of just making somewhat broad references to what wasn't working. And I do apologize for continuing to sporadically crab about this pdoc. I don't even know if he practices a lot of talk therapy in general, or may do much of his business in those short med-prescribing time bytes. I really never asked him anything beforehand, thinking being all fresh and naive would be better!!
But honestly, I don't intend to not try again, and underneath it all this really isn't my opinion of therapy or therapists even now. I only lasted as long as I did due to deference to his presumed expertise, but should have listened to my gut (it's probably amazing how often I say the same things over and over, assuming people don't remember, but maybe they do!). I was writing recently about another situational influence I've had lately that is leading to more anger than I used to have, and I think this episode added to it, because I felt like I was being told to let go of the few remaining things I thought I deserved to feel good about (like some things about my character).
So I hope to sing another tune here someday, and will try again! Thanks. :- D
