i've read your post a couple of times now, and umm i guess you're right that i should try not to feel so guilty about everything.
it's really hard b/c i feel like i'm being so much trouble... and then there are those posts i read here even about people eluding to the fact that they have never called their therapists b/c they dont' want to be one of those annoying clients. i really dont' want to be annoying.
and its such an ingrained response for me that if i call, which i really really want to do when i'm upset, that maybe i'm not strong enough or that i'm being pathetic or maybe the distress i am isn't bad enough to be worthy of a phone call.
umm, it's all confusing. i appreciate your post. it's really hard to change my thinking though, but i'll try.

> Lonelygal, you are who you are and you need what you need. Hopefully you can work through all of it with this new T.
> Could you try not to beat yourself up for feeling needy, for needing help, and for asking for help? It just seems so ... unfair - unfair to yourself.
> If you did this with your nextdoor neighbour, or your teacher, it would be different. It's a T's job when s/he accepts a patient who has that kind of need.
