Hi Penny,
Thank you so much for saying it's not my fault. I didn't realize how much I was feeling that way until you said it. Your post gave me a moment of hope, something I haven't felt in a long time.

As for the therapy, I guess I'll just 'talk about it next week'. I didnt' realize 45 minutes was the norm these days--just enough time to get warmed up and have to leave. I'm new with this guy so I'm struggling with wanting to leave altogether or make the relationship stronger--if that's possible. I have not called him yet outside the office, and he hasn't made himself available for that. Except in his office forms where he makes it clear that anything over 10 minutes on the phone and you're charged for a full office visit. That's the part of therapy that feels so de-humanizing to me, even though I know therapists need their boundaries. But I'm not sure yet whether this guy knows that I'm feeling so needy, or is equipped to deal with it considering this style of therapy--the shorter term CBT (I guess it's CBT although I have to ask).

Thanks again.
