thanks for answering, Dinah.

i should stress that i have pushed hard for this level of honesty so i'm getting what i wished for in one sense. i certainly have benefited from being in therapy with her and she's helping me to accept some parts of my self (the oversensitive, overcritical of myself parts) but i'm wondering if there's really anything more she can do for me at this stage. she's really a lovely person, but that's not enough for this relationship, is it? i am feeling caught in a bind, though, because i feel like i can't express the hurt i'm still feeling over her saying that a. i can call once and only once a week and b. i must call that once a week. i did call this week and she said that she was feeling much better for talking to me. i didn't dare tell her how much worse i felt. hmmmmm.

i know that what i would like is to have a normal relationship with her, we're very much alike and get on well. we're each very very sensitive, though. i did say last week that i didn't think we should be left alone in a room together. maybe i should consider that statement more thoroughly.

thanks for the input

oh yeah, and she has been a therapist for about 20 years
