Dory, I care what happens to you.

If you are in extreme distress, please get real life help. The internet is no substitute for real life help.

I really think that your therapist is committed to staying with you, and has every intention of continuing to work with you. He's told you you can call him if you need to, and that he will respond. Only calling back if you ask him to is actually pretty standard therapy practice. My therapist told me that somewhere down the line, and it was never a question of his changing his rules, but rather explaining his standard practice. He said that he knew sometimes people just wanted to touch base by leaving a message, or explain something, and that if I wanted him to call, then ask him to call. You're seeing your therapist differently right now, that's understandable. But it doesn't mean he isn't fundamentally committed to your wellbeing.

If you don't think you can trust this therapist again, there are others.

If you don't feel you can keep yourself safe, please seek help in real life.
