> Wellll ... I know that he has had some serious illnesses and probably is not right even now. I do believe that it's his responsibility to be alert when seeing patients, though. Kind've needed to hear that from others. I don't want to be a "hard hearted Hannah" type as I have my own health issues! I'm thinking about bringing a snack or something ... he doesn't totally go out like to the point of snoring but his eyes close and he jerks awake ... repeatedly. I just don't want the hassle of finding another T. We have not always had a smooth relationship in part because my needs are not being met very well. Perhaps a case of "you get what you pay for" and my ins. doesn't pay much. I'm still trying to formulate something in my mind to bring up the issue delicately without being offensive. I'm not sure I should ask if there's something I could do to help keep him awake or perhaps talk about his health. That might be what I'll go into though if it doesn't stop soon!

I suppose if you want to be delicate you could ask if he has been really busy lately or how he's feeling?

My T in our last session was really weird and negative our last session, so I called him out on it the next session. He explained to me that he was tired from working two jobs and was having some problems with the other women in his office. It was nice to know that 'hurt krycek's feelings' wasn't on the therapy schedule for that day.

Anyhow, you are not paying him to talk about his problems/health. It's about you. That's why you are shelling out the cash. If he is truly ill and needs some time to get well, perhaps he should take that time for himself, because his sleepiness is acting in detriment to your recovery. (if you want to call it recovery...)

Take care
