Hi and welcome. :)
My handwriting is so bad that even I can't read it. So that's not something I've given much thought to out of sheer practicality.
How did your termination come about? What sort of response do you expect and fear? What do you hope to accomplish? Are you prepared for whatever outcome you get? Do you have support available if you think you need it? (A general Babble rule is that no question needs to be answered. They can just be considered rhetorical if you prefer.)
I'm afraid there are a few therapists out there who believe it is best not to respond to post-termination contact. :( If your response is no response at all, please don't take it personally. It's probably just their policy.
