Phinstegg - I really liked your message that missing or remembering is healthier than feeling lonely or abandoned ... good thought. Pet peeves? Sometimes my T sense of humor is out of place. I think she shares a funny story to help me see the humor in a similar situation, but I'm not ready to joke about it yet. OH ... biggest pet peeve .... even though she doesn't answer her phone during sessions, she does leave the ringer on. It stops after the 2nd ring, but why leave the ringer on at all?
A few months ago, she received a text message on her cell phone (presumably from her children). She told me she had to return the call, and left the office for about 5 minutes. It was so tempting to be alone in her office and see what she writes in her book, or see if I recognize any names in her appointment book, BUT NO, I just continued laying down. My conscious is stronger than my need to snoop. T did add an additional 10 minutes to the end of the session.
And I do think she is compassionate and supportive and appropriate 99% of the time.
Our last session before a 2 week vacation is tomorrow. Wish me luck.
