Had my first (and last!!!!) therapy appt.!

Posted by Jazzed on June 8, 2005, at 20:42:21

OMGosh!!!! This guy was SUCH a freak! I would NEVER see him again, even if he was the last T on the face of the Earth! I left feeling so angry, I just shook my head in total disbelief all the way home. I wanted to scream while I was in there, couldn't wait to get OUT!!! It was the longest 40 minutes! Felt like I was going to hurl because his office smelled bad.

He didn't offer me any help that anyone here couldn't have offered me, or for that matter, didn't tell me anything I didn't already know. He was a total harda** regarding how I should be with the kids regarding discipline. Said that my husband is the king and that I am the queen, and that our family is not a democracy. Gee, how profound. NOT! And he said that because I was a stay at home "traditional" mom, I probably coddled the kids! Hardly! ARGH, I've never met this guy b4, and in the first 10 min. he thinks he's got a clue! I told him my kids were good kids, and that I didn't want to be that way with them.

He kept repeating himself, and said that he felt like he was most of the talking. Could that possibly be because you're a total jerk, who is a male chauvanist?!

Let's see, he asked me how old I am, and told me that I looked young, but that since I wasn't as young as I used to be (who is?), that I probably wasn't as used to getting down on the floor and wrestling with my kids! (Can you guys help me back into my wheelchair?) Geeze! I told him that he underestimated me. What does he know?! And this was after I told him how much I exercise - which is a lot.

He said I was irrational because I didn't feel I should deserve a break after being home all day with a two year old, even if I didn't get anything else done. Irrational? Seems a bit strong to me.

Anyway, I really want to tell my p-doc, but don't know how to broach the subject. Thought? I was thinking of just asking him if I could tell him my experience with one of the Ts. But then he could say no. I also thought that I'd ask him if he would've referred me to this guy if I'd asked for a referral, and if he said possibly, I'd tell him what a total waste of time it was. Now I have to start from square 1, and none of the other Ts in this office are accepting new patients. Gee, I wonder why he was?! LMAO!

Oh, and about his appearance, he was totally dissheveled. I've never seen a "professional" look so bad. He had long, dirty hair, a hat, sloppy clothes, and muddy shoes. Oh, NO problem with transferrence EVER in THIS lifetime!!!!!!!
