Hi EL. First of all, the stuff you wrote about with your illnesses and giving up hope... it all resonates deeeeeeply within my own heart. I gave up marriage and a family before I was old enough to marry. I know my issues are too much for a man to handle.

That all being said, all I know about your therapy sessions is what you have shared and what I'm saying is based upon just that... Please promise us that if this therapist become inappropriate, that you will report it or at least transfer to a different place for services.

Therapists are people and they are human and there are times I've been inappropriately flirty with some of my clients. I didn't realize it until afterward b/c I don't think of them as clients... they are people. People have emotions and emotions get intertwined and mixed up.

STILL, it's the responsibility of your therapist, who is trained to look out for these thigns, to protect you from his own mixed up feelings!!!

It could be a misinterpretation of sorts and all accidental... or it could be that he is reacting to his divorce and out of line professionally concerning your treatment.

I know you care for him and I'm sure he's a wonderful therapist but please know that absolutely NO responsible therapist would jeopardize their client by trying to have a relationship outside of client/therapist. Even friendships aren't encouraged b/c you lose the ability to see things clearly ... or at least minimally clearly.. .when you are too invested in someone else's life...

Again, I'm so sorry about the pain. I feel it too. I'm hiding right now b/c I owe about 700 dollars that I can't pay to my roommate and my landlord. I haven't even eaten but I'm terrified to leave my room. I could work but every joint I have burns like fire... It's just too much for me and I'm overwhelmed and it sucks. I know what you mean about the nowhere to turn...

take care, be safe, and protect yourself girl!!!

stay strong
