Boy, you guys would HATE my T. She checks the phone number when it rings and if it's her daughter she'll take it quickly. She hops in and out with the dog, answers the door when she's not sure who it is (Fed Ex maybe), fixes her coffee if it wasn't hot enough, and does all sorts of things! She warns me sometimes if she knows it's going to happen, but there's always a lot of action going on because her office is in her home. AT leaset she doesn't do her laundry--that would be a deal breaker!

Sometimes it does bother me, but I'm used to it by now. It's hard to get back on track sometimes but I tell her if I think she's not paying attention to me!

And my pdoc yawns and checks his watch, which makes me beserk. He has one of those fancy computers that he takes notes on and the other day I caught him and asked him "What are you doing?" He looked like a scared rabbit. "Uh, checking old notes." Well, it's bothering me, I said--who knows--he could have been playng Solitaire for all I know.

I'm not making light of this for anyone. My situation is just different, but I do agree that therapists shouldn't do these things; it's disruptive to the relationship and the flow of the conversation. I do know that if we are interuppted my T will take the extra time to reconnect even if it means we go over.

So tell them when it bothers you. And the little therapist voice in my head hears them asking, and what does this bring up for you? Waaaa
