Pdoc/Real Me asked why I wouldn't shake hands abov

Posted by antigua3 on October 23, 2007, at 16:08:58

with my pdoc and I didn't want to steal her thread.

after today, I wouldn't ever, ever touch him, in any possible way. I've had it--over a very simple thing. I asked him why he couldn't call me by my first name. He uses Mrs. xXX, and all I can think of is my 83 year-old-mother-in-law. He says he refuses to call clients by their first names. What would this be such a deal breaker for me? Am I nuts? Well, yes, of course I am.
I bolted from the room as he was scheduling another appt and I yelled "No MORE!"

I am under an intense amount of pressure right now, and his response was that I seemed to be handling it all very well. Oh, that was a big help (although I can throw it in my husband's face who thinks i'm just moping around and should be extra charged with energy, which is his way of dealing with stress). I told pdoc I thought I was going to snap and he dismissed it, and said it wouldn't happen. Oh yeah? How does he know? Trivialize, trivialize...
A little hot under the collar right now.
I also asked him why he was treating me so differently--kinder, for ex--and he said he had noted no change. All I can do is an all out snort on that one. Also, why doesn't he look at the past, but concentrate on the future, I asked, because that's what he said last week. Because the past can't be changed, he said, and the future is out there to be molded in the healthiest way. But what about getting ove the past, letting the feelings go?
I'm so confused.
