To ask or not to ask

Posted by fallsfall on July 30, 2006, at 21:10:14

Tomorrow I will have a phone session with my therapist (who is on vacation). I've been looking forward to this and really hope that it will help me through his second week of vacation.

Next weekend a dear Babble friend is coming to visit (I'll let her tell you who, if she wants to). She'll be here during my first session after his vacation a week from tomorrow. I really want her to meet my therapist and see his office and sit in my chair for a couple of minutes (no, she can't have my session!). I really want my therapist to meet her, because he hears about her frequently.

Dinah brings up a good point that he probably wouldn't like to be surprised, and that I should probably warn him that she is coming. But what if he says no? What would your therapist say? Would you ask in advance? If I ask him tomorrow on the phone and he says no, will it make the next week harder? Will he get mad just because I asked?

I think my current plan is to tell him that she is coming to visit, and that I'm going to show her a bunch of things in my life. I'll take her to the airport right after my session, so I'll ask if I can offer to let her wait through my session in his waiting room. Then when we are there I'll ask if she can come in for just a minute.
