Feeling a bit paranoid

Posted by Dinah on December 8, 2004, at 7:51:18

We went to see the play therapist my therapist recommended from his old center yesterday. Just to help my son with the stress of this time, with two grandparents dying and two stressed out parents not really getting along well.

She's very nice, and I think she's a first good recommendation from my therapist.

But I got some feeling from her, and from some of her questions about me (because of course children's therapy is also family therapy and they like to get a full picture of the family situation) that she has heard of me. Not by name or anything. But maybe when I told her how long I'd been seeing my therapist, she put together some old conversations with my therapist (because most of his work is short term and I'm his only really long term client), or I don't know if they talked about clients at their weekly meeting, but maybe something like that.

But there just seemed to be some recognition in her remarks and questions. One of the more specific things was that she was surprised when she thought I was still seeing the pdoc from h*ll. Was that because he drives everyone away? Or because she had heard of our difficulties...

BTW, one huge mark for her is that she clearly doesn't like said pdoc. :) One of the weirdest and most disturbing thing about my therapist is that he does like him. Of course, he's uncommonly good with difficult people, or I'd not still be his client I guess.

Anyway, I guess I'll ask my therapist, but I hate asking questions when I'm not sure how I'll feel about the answer. What if he tells me "Dinah, I never gave you a second thought once we left session. I never asked for collegial input, that's for sure." Or, since I know he had serious doubts about whether he was being any use to me for a long time, what if he said he *did* talk about me.

I can't see a good answer to the question, so maybe I should keep my suspicions to myself. She doesn't seem to hold whatever she may possibly heard against me. And maybe she just inferred a lot of that stuff.
