My therapist might be sick

Posted by Allisonfly on November 17, 2019, at 0:12:54

Hi Everyone! Its been many years since Ive posted to this board. It looks like there are a lot of good conversations going on.

Im looking for some advice and support. I was diagnosed with bipolar disorder many years ago and have been seeing the same therapist for 25 years. In our last session, I had an unusual experience. She took a call during my session because it was from her doctor and she was waiting to get some test results. I know its not cool to take a call during a session but I didnt really mind bc it was important. The problem was that I could overheat bits and pieces of the call. Im worried she might have cancer. I dont know for sure, and she may not even know at this point, but I dont know what to do. Ive been in a very unstable depressed state throughout the fall and I really rely on her. Of course I dont want her to be sick not only bc of my own needs but also for her sake and her family. I have been really anxious about this all week. I have been trying to practice mindfulness. But there are times I just cry.

I am thinking I will talk to her when I see her next week but I feel weird about it. I dont think its appropriate for her to tell me what is going on with her medically but then again I dont know what to do. Any thoughts would be most appreciated!
