Racer, that sounds just like where I am. I've been seeing a therapist that really wasn't working for me. I always misread her, and was angry at her. And I didn't like the way she talked to me. And I kept going for a while, because I figured that I could learn something from all of this.
But eventually I realized that I made so much progress with my previous T, *because* we got along well. I don't have to endure this really unpleasant therapy just because I could grow - eventually - from it. I can also grow from more pleasant, supportive-feeling therapy. I know because I've *done* it before.
So, I'm glad to hear that you're going to try to find someone who is a better fit for you. There are a lot of Ts out there. I'm sure at least one of them can help you find the door.
