I, too, have a wonderful therapist who is there for me when I need her. I can ask her to call me at night and she will. I see her every week b/c we're doing some intense work right now and when she thinks I am in trouble (when the depression is running rampant) she has me call to check in with her at night. I have had a problem with becoming a bit too attached to her, but that seems to be resolving itself.

And, as though having a good therapist wasn't enough, I have a fantastic pdoc too who is very much available to me when I need him. He gives his pager number to his patients and tells us to page him 'anytime.' And he means ANYTIME. If it's an emergency, you put 911 behind your number and he'll call you immediately, no matter what. And he doesn't have a time limit on our sessions. We talk as long as I need to, and there's no charge on between-session phone calls. Hmmm...makes me feel fortunate.

The two of them have really saved my life, and they're attempting right now to save it again. I wish everyone could find mental healthcare providers they felt that kind of confidence in.
