Llurpsie, I have brought it up repeatedly. I told him how it a) reminded me of my abusive father, 2) it made me not able to connect to him. And I can't remember his response as I recall he just moved on. I know he has a medical condition and doesn't sleep well but come on. I get the sense sometimes he is just bored.
I don't know. I now stop talking the minute I see he is sleepy and he wakes up. And gets coffee. So he knows I know. I shut down, he avoids the topic. I even asked him if something was worse since I noticed he was sleepy every session. I told him it made it harder for me to connect with this issue since my father is very sleepy all the time, he has sleep apnea. He will fall asleep in mid-sentence. I even said if you want me to accept you as a parental figure this isn't going to cut it. No response. He just agreed with me but no response. He is beginning to look like one of those typical p-docs. I am sadden by the reversal.

He thought I would be an easy fix, maybe he now sees that isnt the case and may regret it. I don't know.

I just know I am not sure I can go on much longer. I will do one of two things. I will blow up or I will ditch and run. I even told him I might ditch and run since it really bothers me the way things seem to be going. He nodded his head and started asking questions.

I see it as mixed messages.

But thanks for the response and support.

sometimes the veiled messages suck dont' they.
