My therapist said he wasn't angry at my bringing it out. He said it was something I had every right to ask about. And he reiterated that his charge wasn't based on how annoying his client was. :)

But the funny side effect was that fees also came up in other part of the discussion we had today. As if by mentioning it, I had removed the taboo from the subject. Now it can be a natural part of any discussion of the therapeutic relationship. Isn't that odd?

And yes, I do understand all that about being annoying in some ways but not in others. But this one thing is so deeply ingrained in me that, as my therapist said today, only I can convince myself that it isn't true. And we're going to work on that over time, since it isn't quickly done.
