Hmmm. Interesting questions. It does sound to me as though the appearance stuff is coming from your t's personal agenda, rather than from your therapy needs. Or, at least, it sounds as though that's what you think. It's kinda annoying, but as therapist foibles go, I guess it could be worse.

Re: gray hair, I hope you won't let his comments get you down. There are plenty of folks who prefer the natural look. They may be in the minority, but they're out there. I, myself, have plenty of gray hair, and no intention of ever coloring it. I've actually had many compliments on it, and some not so complimentary comments as well. But, for one thing, once you color it, then you have to keep coloring it, and I'm just not willing to develop high maintenance hair. For another thing, I *like* my gray hair. And it sounds like you do too. When people comment on it, I explain that I earned every one of those gray hairs, and so they have a lot of sentimental value for me.

And third, why does every friggin other person have an opinion about how women should groom themselves? Huh? Especially in these areas primarily designed to make women look younger than they are. What's so bad about wrinkles and gray hair? We should all be hoping we're lucky enough to make it to 90 with all the gray hair and wrinkles and experience and wisdom that entails.

I wish you many future gray hairs (but, of course, no more than your share).
