*****I brought up the issue of how angry I was for her not telling me about my pdoc's husband. She insists it wasn't deliberate - that she just didn't think of it during the one session we had between his death and when I heard about his death*****

Hi Mair,

As much as it is upsetting, I think she probably really didn't think of it. I think therapists are just trained to put stuff out of their minds and focus on their clients. You've been with her a long time -- I think you'd know if she was lying to you.

But I can see why you'd be upset. The connection is too close and your reaction what she expected. I don't disagree with Dinah - there is a lot to be angry about and your therapist is a safe place to put some of it. The whole situation is just so awful. And in a supervision group there is too much time to pull apart all the possible ramifications of a decision. In the moment, there can't be as much thinking, analyzing or second guessing.

I'm glad you are feeling somewhat more stable. Sounds like a very tough couple of weeks. Hang in there.
