Chuckle. Well, as you might have guessed by now, my therapist isn't the smoothest therapist around, and he tends to blurt out truth.

Just a couple of weeks ago, he said that I appeared to him to be reacting the way I always reacted when I was in a crisis. And I answered "Crisis? OK, I'm a bit upset, but crisis?" And he backed down from the crisis, but mentioned it a couple of other times in the four sessions I had with him that week. Crisis? I wasn't in crisis! Four sessions definitely meant something, but not a crisis.

But my favorite was the time my med reimbursement plan was questioning the therapy and asked whether it was medically necessary. I ended up getting a prescription from my pdoc to settle the issue, but when I mentioned it to my therapist he said "Personal growth???!!!! Of COURSE it's not for PERSONAL GROWTH!!!! OF COURSE it's MEDICALLY NECESSARY!!!!" Mutter mutter and many headshakes.

I was staring at him trying to decide whether to laugh at his emphatic response or to be really really concerned for my sanity.
