Well, then, if he is unable to do his job well because he came back too soon--that is his fault, kiddo, and you tell him it makes you angry. But you are the PATIENT and it is not your job to have to anticipate his needs like that. It sounds like what many of us have had to do with our parents. As my first therapist once said, his job is to get out of the way of all those old dynamics--ie, not contribute more of them. Seriously, I think you should go in, expect the therapy you pay for. If he isn't up to it, you have a right to be miffed at him for not taking care of himself properly because it ain't your job.
