I'm glad the first impression was wrong! She sounds like someone who can admit to being wrong, change tactics and be effective. This is rare.

You've had quite a month. I'm curious what a female pdoc said about your mother stuff...this is one of the toughest things we wade through, how I feel about my mother's expectations. I've wondered if a female Therapist would look at it differently.

Recently my therapist had me tell him all the amazing and wonderful things about my mother. The list is very long, including "she is a great shopper." He listened very closely and then said, "didn't you just describe how people describe you?" I protested that with her it was REAL...she wasn't just doing what she was supposed to, and she didn't feel like a fake all the time. SHE KNOWS WHO SHE IS. He sat calmly through this tirade and then talked a lot about mothers and daughters. It wasn't that I didn't believe him, it was just that I wondered if you saw it differently if you've lived it.

Anyway...just curious. Thanks for the update.
