Isla -

After reading your first and second posts re: your T, it does make me uncomfortable. I don't know, but his actions may reflect his inexperience in doing therapy vs. prescribing medication for therapy clients.

His boundaries seem quite loose. And that can be confusing for a client. On one hand, you like all the extra time, on the other, why do you feel compelled to stay if you have something else to do? (I understand your answer, that makes sense).

When you inquire, "Is this normal?", I don't think we can tell you. Every theraputic relationship has its own set of nuances. But I do think he sends you confusing messages. Ask yourself, "Is he acting in the best interest of my recovery?"

It is extremely hard to break away from a T. Others on this board have done so, successfully, but not without a lot of inner turmoil and grief. Afterall, you have bared your soul for 3 years with this T.

If you were able to see a psychologist for a few sessions and discuss your cuurent situation, you may receive the feedback you need to make a decision you can live with. It will not be easy.

Good Luck and Welcome to Babble. Keep us posted.
