Well I told her up front I didn't want to have another appointment. Got my check, returned her energy healing meditation CD, told her I was miffed about the diamond thing, then we just did a typical session of catching up, spent time on my hair (which fell out this past weekend). Then it was near the end, she said I should come back in two weeks and we'd talk about terminating then. I said no, she countered with OK we'll do a termination session then, I asked who's that for, you or me? Said I did not want another appointment, she said OK then let's do it now. Said no, it was already too late and I have things to do (I have a chemo infusion tomorrow). She said don't you think it's odd to just end like this? I agreed it was odd but said it's what I need to do. She asked me to agree to call her if I get more depressed. I said I'd call her if I felt like a session would help, whether I was depressed or not. She finally got me to agree to think about calling in two weeks.
Somehow this concept of taking a hiatus just isn't going over with her. It has to be some kind of formal "termination" or not.
At one point in the session I pointed out I've been seeing her longer than I lived with my parents!
So I got what I wanted, which was getting out with no future appointment. Somehow I think she'll surely call in two weeks whether I call or not.
The thought of some kind of wrap up session is really exhausting. I'd think I'd rather postpone that indefinitely.
She said I look adorable in my hat. I feel really self-conscious about it and think I look awful, and that comment really did make me feel batter.
Thanks for all the support here, you all really helped with this.
