> Any suggestions on how to deal with feeling really embarrassed by my actions towards my shrink? I know from the past he will not make an issue of anything, but I have lots to be embarrassed about this time (like too friendly). Thanks, Judy
It is his job. This is what he has been trained for.
Do you really think that you are his first?
I have been in a similar situation. Simply apologize. He will tell you, "Don't worry about it. It comes with the territory."
One way or the other, you don't own your actions. Your illness does. Your doctor knows this.
I hope you can resolve your embarrassment with him so that you can move on. Simply apologize.
