I'm glad it went so much better this time! And good for you for speaking up. :)

It sounds like it's been a heck of a month. And you've been so stoic! I'd have been whining like heck. So you're going to stay where you are, meds-wise? Nardil at the dose you started?

It wouldn't surprise me at all if there were some connection between the time you called her and your therapist's absence. I have a tendency to do that too. I think I want to make sure I have some depth in my support team. That's one reason I hope my pdoc never releases me to my internist like my headache internist did, despite the fact that we rarely change meds.

I would never go against my therapist's prohibition about having two therapists, but if my pdoc or adjunct therapists had interesting input I don't think I'd make a big deal about silencing them, although I wouldn't of course encourage them. ;)

Perhaps she it is her experience that first time clients need a "hook" to keep them tuned in and coming back. Shock therapy. And when you let her know it wasn't helpful, she changed tack. That way she wouldn't be a pod person either time. (And as you told her, to some extent it worked.)
