(((Daisy))),

Please try not to feel like your T is sending you away when he brings up the pdoc. My T always tells me that he feels the best thing is to have psychotherapy as well as medication. Sometimes, one of those alone just isn't as effective when not coupled with the other.

You are right. Your T doesn't want you to suffer. He wants you to feel better. By sending you to the pdoc, he's just trying to give you the best chance there is to feel better.

If you were in a contest where you could win a million dollars and a car, would you just take the million dollars? Why not have both, if you can? The contest isn't for one or the other and, maybe more importantly, no one is saying if you want the car you can only have $500,000. Your T will still be there for you *as much* as you need him.

I'm sorry this is such a slow process and that you had such a triggering session the other day.

Gentle hugs,
Laurie

P.S. Thanks for introducing me to the wonders of the toasted PB and J with apricot jam. Maybe one would help you today.
