I want to throw in a caution here...

I agree that both will most likely communicate in professional terms, using jargon, short-hand and few details. And I think is really important that you ask what was said.

But prepare yourself just a little for it to feel somewhat harsh and detached. I can only speak for myself but I was a little shocked to hear that things that happened to me were "severe", that my depression was "major" and that my current stressors were "enormous." It wasn't that I disagreed, I just never thought about stuff like that. I feel silly saying "I thought I only had a little bit of abuse, but..." I've talked about that recently here and in therapy.

I hope he calls soon. It sounds very stressful.
