I like my pdoc and think he's good. But I don't like the way he comes across. It was worse in the beginning. I'm smart enough to realize and respect boundaries and don't like that there's no personal connection. Sometimes he's so blank that I sit there and just wonder if he thinks I'm crazy. I know he doesn't - so fine, I guess it brings up my insecurity. Great! Lovely! Just what I need in the middle of the day. I would appreciate some more warmth rather than the cold clinician approach.

I've had it with psychologists. The last one I had was milktoasty and I felt like I was out of his league. The one I had before that I liked but he ended up having to move to DC because of his military status. I've been through too many to keep going through the tiring aspect of going through the history and digging things up again and again.

So my pdoc will occaisionally scratch beneath the surface for 2 minutes, but that's all I get in the way of psychotherapy, which is too bad, if I had a full hour I feel like I could maybe make more strides, but oh well, screw it.
