Hi toojane, nice to meet you. I guess I have to respond to this one, huh? :) I spend a lot of time censoring my responses, wondering if what I'm thinking makes sense... but I'll type AND post this time!

First, I just wanted to say that I'm surprised and touched that you have been reading my story and have been affected by it.. even if not in a great way. It always surprises me to hear that anyone cares what I have to say, so it's neat to hear. Thank you.

Would you be surprised to hear that I saw Anne pass me driving on the main street in my town today? Of course not. haha! This woman pops up everywhere. Rant aside... her degree is in social work. Shes an LCSW.

I'm still really torn personally about how much of what happened with Anne is about her and how much is about me. Some of what the others said is true.. we're only hearing one side of the story, and we're all in therapy because we have issues, so the story may be skewed in my mind. However, that definitely does not (in my mind) make calling it all "borderline stuff" or abandoning a client okay for any therapist to do, regardless of what the client may have done, assuming it wasnt anything dangerous or obviously inappropriate. I know I was never dangerous or inappropriate with Anne. Of course, there are some more blatent ethics violations that have nothing at all to do with that the client did. So my answer is one great big I dont know. I wish I did.

Sometimes I wonder if therapists dont become a little bit used to, or desensitized, to their work and not realize the effects their actions may have. They have so many clients, and us only one therapist... maybe it's easy for them to forget how much their actions matter for us individually and effect our lives. I dont know.
