Hey El, hows it going with trying to find a T/advocate?
Have you tried the pastoral angle? It might be useful for support in the interim, until you find what you need. You need another body on YOUR side, with no vested interest in anything. You really do. And if you don't like religion, just say to counsellor, I do NOT want to talk bout religious stuff. I just need some backup help here.
If you go thru the more generic type churches they may possibly have suggestions. Or you could just try and look something up in the phone book. And then maybe have a list of questions to ask:
-sliding scale?
-do you push religion on people?
-what sort of experience have you had?
-woman or man?
-availability outside of appointments?
-cost of telephone calls?
-willing to advocate to help me get medical care?
and whatever else you or other babblers can think of.
And then, don't think of this T as necessarily one that is going to do tons of 'work' with you at this point. At least not until you have decidied they are worthy. You just are looking for some outside help.
And your present T will proly be ok with this cuz it'd likely be female?, and its pastoral, so not in his circle, and so mebbe he will feel less threatened.
I truly think it is worth a try. Or several tries, until you find one that suits you.
Take care El, there are still things you can do, lots of things, you can do this.
Please try this. There doesn't seem like you got much to lose in trying at least.
I do care about you El. You got lots of kindness, lots to give. You just need some healing.
