Thanks SV.

My current T won't give me her email id. She doesn't use emails at all, and has never given it to any clients before. And she says she only checks her email once in a while at her work in a hospital, and she is not email savvy. And she doesn't want to repeat what happened with my ex psychiatrist. If I have her email, then I would be very tempted to write to her, and will get frustrated when she delays replying, or replies shortly. And she thinks, it is very important for me to get a full closure this time to heal from my issues with my psychiatrist and be able to move on. And I think she is right.

I won't find another T in India. They won't help me in the way I need to be helped. They will only give me logical answers, and those - I know already anyway. I need someone to give me emotional understanding. And it won't happen in India.

Would it be possible to check in via phone or email every few weeks during this time, until you are settled in India and see how things turn out? It seems a lot to deal with so suddenly on one's own (or perhaps I'm projecting some of my own feelings on this issue).

She says, I still haven't felt angry or resolved the feelings. I don't know how to access my anger.. And she says I have lot of anxiety still, and insecurities.

They would dismiss me in the first appt as being all fine - because I talk well, and even if I tell anyone repeatedly I have problems, I am going to be dismissed lightly or told something like "try to focus your mind on something else useful". And it won't work for me - becuase I do feel bad and while I can focus my mind on something else and can occupy my mind with other things (as I already do anyway), I still want to really heal myself, and I won't get the indepth support from anyone.
