Dinah, btw, it wasn't quite as easy as it sounds for me to discuss it, as it stirred up a lot of internal stuff for me, but my therapist did a great job of being "real" about the situation and opening it up for me to feel as safe as possible. I think he did a good job of owning what he brings to the situation (he always does) and making it clear that it isn't my job to take care of him--and there was a consistency to his words and how he acted--he wasn't just saying that--his behavior conveyed that he was taking care of himself and it wasn't my job. As I mentioned, he said he had learned that work, and sticking to routines, was a way to take care of himself, so being back at work was as much for him as for his patients.

He had taken off some time, during which he had coverage. I saw the covering doctor once during that time.
