Hmm. You have me curious about your humor now... I think... Well... I just don't think she understood where I was coming from, particularly. Or that she empathized particularly. I guess... I didn't feel that she had much of a conception of the 'therapist role' she was supposed to be playing. Even... Even less so than the counselors I've seen. Or even the people who run the AA / NA type meetings. I suspect I may have been the first client she was told to 'just listen to her' and it was a bit awkward for her, really. She wasn't quite sure what things were about.

And of course she didn't invest anything. I expect I'm emotionally draining. Like being wrenched about for a bit. I swear sometimes she was rolling her eyes... I was trying to figure out / work through what was wrong... Turned out my flatmate was not the easiest person to get along with... That my living environment (surprise!) again, was toxic for me. I wish... She could have helped my working through a bit more... I could have moved out, even.
