Wow. What an interesting situation. Thanks for sharing it here.

Actually, it's funny b/c a few times my pdoc has said things about some of the meds that I take that has made it clear that she has never been on them (e.g., is that med in a tablet or a capsule?) That kind of made me feel a little sad b/c it made me feel like the sick patient and her like the one who is okay and not sick. It sounds like I want the opposite of what you want! Although this is my pdoc and maybe it would feel different w/ my T. I don't know.

I agree with what some posters said above that she is probably trying to show you that taking meds is not a sign of being weak, it is a sign of taking care of yourself. I do think that bringing it up w/ her can lead to some really constructive discussion that will help you in a variety of ways.


> I've been in therapy with my T for about a year now. She's been somewhat helpful but I've always felt uncomfortable because she admitted to me quite some time ago that she takes an AD for depression. She's tried to stop taking it, but she relapses.
> I realize T's all have their own issues, but I felt funny about her disclosing this to me. I suppose I expect my T to be *stronger* than myself.
> Any comments?
