Hi fw.

I feel very sad about some of the things that have happened between you and this therapist. It sounds as though he is not feeling well himself; also the amount of self-disclosure on his part seems far too much. At the same time, he seems to be almost blaming you for your own illness- and to not be able to be anywhere near consistently empathic or attentively listening to you. If all these things have happened, and it's not possible for him to be there emotionally for you- maybe you should think through carefully whether he is right for you. There ARE wonderful therapists out there whom you will know are helpful. Sometimes you know the minute you walk in to their offices. It is awfully hard to look and not find the right one, but sometimes it does take several tries...
