I think it is an external situation. Things seem to have gone down several notches ever since she missed a week in April to attend a funeral. She had planned to come back after a couple of days, but then called me on that Tues. to say she just couldn't do it. We had one decent session after that and the following one was when the other client knocked on the door during my session and then was waiting just outside the door when I came out. She still doesn't understand how completely freaked out I am by that.

But mostly she's just not getting things about me she used to get. One of the things I told her last week when she said she didn't call me back because I didn't say it was an emergency was, "I didn't think I had to. You *know* how freaked out I am by all things gynecological. You are the only one who knows how bad it was for me in March. Six months ago I wouldn't have HAD to say it was an emergency." She says that's not true and that I'm rewriting history. I beg to differ.

I think my real fear here is that this is another step down the long road to retirement. I have seen her for 22 years -- half my life. Almost two years ago, she went part-time and moved her office to the place from hell. But she has still been available to me most of the time in a way she completely hasn't been since April. But she doesn't see it that way so here we sit.

I hate it, I hate it, I hate it.

But I'm going to keep your words in my mind and try to hang in there a while longer to see if we can work it out.

P.S. The office move thing would freak me out, too. Don't they get that CHANGE IS BAD?????????
