I dropped the bomb on my doc (long and scattered)

Posted by platinumbride on April 9, 2004, at 1:04:42

To those of you who gave me so much good and heartfelt advice (esp fallsfall and spoc) THANK YOU AGAIN! I am not sure that I would have been able to address this at all if you all had not lent me your support.

(I had posted about being dissatisfied with the talk therapy I have been having. God, I am still so nervous!!!) The post was on 3/30 as part of racer's thinking about quitting therapy)

(btw: racer, I am sorry i just jumped in on your thread...bad judgement call on my part...really, I did it all in the wrong way)

I kind of feel awful because I know that I didn't give him all of the respect he is due, because I stated my feelings on his voice mail, but it was the only way I could get the ball rolling...and I just HAD to at least begin a dialogue about seeing him only for the purpose of meds. Since he is 50 miles away and I have no car, it would have been at least another week before I could see him, and I was afraid I would chicken out. I am not proud that I had to leave a message at 1 in the morning rather than talking to him face to face, but I will just have to learn to live with that, I guess.
I'm pretty scared that he will just leave me kind of high and dry...almost as if he would spite me...dumb, because he has only shown me great kindness...
I don't want the relationship to end entirely, but I kind of think i just might owe it to myself to try to get talk therapy with someone who might be able to give me more of what I need...

I wish I werent; being such a freak about this: all I want is to change the nature of a professional relationship, and I am acting like I am breaking up with a boyfriend who really needs me!!!

Anyway, I can't keep things straight in my head here, so I guess I better just stop typing ;-)

I really appreciate this forum. Thanks for listening....
