Thanks Pf....I like what your t. said about going through the same river....that helps me because I often think that my t. holds all of her clients like she holds me, I am not special...she must clump me together with all of her clients, like a teacher in front of a class.

My t. says the same thing....each relationship is different and separate, and she often tells me to try to think of just her and me and only us. My t. is pretty well known in my area, has a waiting list (I didn't know how "famous" she was until after I made my first appt with her and did some research on her).....and so I often pressure myself to "hurry up and get better because there are a lot of people waiting to get in".....and she tells me that I can stay as long as I want.

Yeah it is interesting and helpful to hear of others' experiences, and it is my impression that everyone here so far has pretty awesome therapists. I shy away from these types of forums because they have discouraged me in the past. :( I often hear of others' therapy experiences and they don't sound remotely like mine. Here, I feel like I fit. Thanks for making me feel welcome!!!
