In reply to I need someone to talk me out of quitting therapy., posted by seldomseen on November 20, 2008, at 16:22:47
Wow. Injudicious of him. :( I seriously doubt he would have advised you say that to someone.
My therapist is a total idiot at times, and I get pretty angry. Not to mention hurt.
This sounds so different than what you've been conveying in general that I have to think quitting isn't the best choice at this time. Not that I don't understand the impulse upon such a monumental misjudgment. Not to mention his forgetting to put you first.
I suppose it would be possible to think that perhaps someone else was ahead of you in the cancellation list. That may be too charitable tho.
Can you go to your next session and bless him out so thoroughly that you'll be the very last patient he ever forgets from this point forward? I've done that, with decent if not perfect success.
After you're no longer so angry with him, you'll be able to assess quitting more logically.
