Therapist vacations are the worst. And although mine usually tells me it's ok for me to call him, I've only done it when he was out of town for work, not vacation.

However, your therapist wouldn't have set her arrangements up the way she did if she was that opposed to being disturbed. She would have told you to call your pdoc, or go to the emergency room, or had a backup who would try to handle things without contacting her.

I know we try to protect our therapists from ourselves, and I'm just as guilty of that as anyone. But as my therapist always says, it's his job to know what he needs and provide it. It's not my job to try to second guess him.

If you really need to contact the backup therapist, I'm sure your therapist would prefer you to do that rather than to hurt yourself in any way. I'm not suggesting you do anything she didn't set up herself. My therapist doesn't have a backup anymore. :( So I think she's being responsible about choosing how much to take on herself and how much to delegate to others.

How much longer do you have to wait till she's back?
