The whole calling issue IS very difficult. My T has said I can call any time I need to and I've done that 3 times (all during normal business hours). The first time she was with a patient, called back quickly and I went in that day for an emergency appointment. The other 2 times were probably far more an emergency than the first, but she wasn't in and even though the receptionist said she could get a message to her, I wouldn't leave one (and I never mentioned to my T that I had called). I think that I'm so afraid of crossing a boundary/invading her privacy that I keep myself 1000 miles away from them. I'm perfectly aware that I am her job and not her life. So, my thought process is that if she isn't in the office, she isn't planning to be working(which is the only place I fit into her life), so leaving a message would be invading her personal time. There are lots and lots of times when I want to call, but then I wonder what exactly it is that I expect to get out of it and I can't figure it out, so I don't call. She can't fix it, so why bother her?

I realize none of this is helpful, I'm just processing what's in my own head.
