SteelMagnolia - thank you for your post. My dh does not understand my conflict -- not that he wouldn't support my leaving the job, but he does not "get" the way I feel. I'm still trying to sort this out.

Thanks again!

I'm so sorry that I can't offer you some advice. I think I would also be very conflicted if I were in your shoes. I do wonder what your husband/family thinks about all this. I only ask because if your DH didn't like the situation, then perhaps focusing on that aspect would help you break free.
> One thing I remember someone telling me is that after a certain time period the therapy relationship is considered officially terminated even if it's the result of the patient quitting. I don't remember the timeframe, but I think maybe it's defined as 1 month w/o therapy. So if that's true, at least it would seem that you were no longer his "patient" when you began working for him. I'm *not* saying that it was ethical for him to hire you so soon, but that part of your post just struck me and I wanted to share that information.
