What a difficult session.
I'm having a hard time understanding his comment about not being able to help you if your depression is medical. Maybe it's because my T has told me several times that he thinks the most effective road to recovery includes both talk therapy and meds. Your T is saying it has to be one or the other? I don't get that at all. Why wouldn't you take advantage of all the options you have available to get yourself feeling better. Plus, I can only imagine there are limits to both talk therapy and meds. If you combine the two, one can pick up the slack where the other is lacking.
And transference or not, I understand you're feeling hurt by his words and actions. I'm sorry you had such a rough session, but I know you can work through it with him and turn it into something productive. It just might take a little time. So don't forget you can always lean on us.
Oh, your foot? What happened? Sorry, I must have missed something.
Take care, gg.
