Welcome back. Glad you're still coming to Toronto. I'll have someone to hide with under the table.
Your pdoc really has some good insight into what's behind your feelings for Dr. Bob and why you kept posting what you did about ending your life.
I agree with Racer that seeing a therapist would really benefit you. Seeing pdoc every two or three weeks isn't enough. Some pdocs do therapy and meds management. My expdoc did, only I was already comfortable with my therapist, so I just saw him for meds. You pdoc might do weekly therapy with you.
If you do see a T, you can give your pdoc and therapist permission to talk to each other. Then your pdoc learns more about where you are in therapy and your T learns more about how the meds are working. I despise the term treatment team, but that's what it's commonly called.
Definitely tell your pdoc that we think therapy would be a good thing for you. And of course, post and let us know what she said.
