> (Footnote: What is ACC / ACC funding?)

Accident Compensation. There should really be another 'C' word in that. They pay for something towards therapy when people have been sexually abused.

> The last time I few times I've seen mental professionals, I felt they were reaching around me to deal with a theoretical client or paper-file person, not seeing ME.

Yeah. I think they do that sometimes. Especially when they are in a hurry. And maybe she didn't want to see me till she knew for sure that she was going to be working with me.

Yeah. I didn't think the yelling was such a good thing for her to be doing. I started off walking out and when she started getting louder I almost ran.

> Anyway, it sounds like you showed up at the appointment, really showed up, and you weren't included in *her* process which was about being on the phone and getting forms about forms and wondering if people were stoned and carrying out orders (from the pdoc). In a certain sense, it sounds like there wasn't much going on therapeutically that you *could* stabotage.

Yeah, I guess. I did my best. Really. I was so very worried about how it would go I think I just got sick with worrying about it.

> > I should have been really trying to make a good impression.

> What would that mean? Would it have helped? Seriously. Good impressions are for employment applications. Therapy is for showing up, which it seems you did and she didn't (in a therapeutic sense).

Yeah. I guess I just looked fairly much like something the cat dragged in. I wasn't even going to go. I just managed to haul myself out of bed and threw some jeans on in time.

> > i dont know whether to trust my judgment

> This is bad philosophy. A dog chasing its referential tail. The question must be set aside.

Yeah. Even if I did know that my judgement was faulty that wouldn't help me. Not unless I knew precisely when and in what way it was faulty so I could remidy that...

> But I think Alexandra is a good philosopher. And we know that good philosophers hassle people. They hassle institutions. They walk out. They make demands and bad impressions. Therapists hate good philosophers unless the therapist is a good philosopher, too.

> (This is rare.)

I liked that.
I think there might be something in that...

> -bhc (mediocre philosopher)

I'm afraid I have to disagree. I think you are a pretty good philosopher yourself. We have had some very interesting conversations.

Thanks for that. I feel a little better now
