It was kind of funny. Even when I was close to hyperventilating and lost my words to speak. Because of my therapist I think. He was so calm and matter of fact, and made it sound perfectly ok if I called him without remembering it. It's what I like best about him. He can be so calm and soothing and unflappable.

Because my therapist's first choice of diagnosis for me would be DD-NOS, the idea that I could have called him without knowing it was terrifying to me. I've always been so reassured that I've never lost time. He calmed me down and talked about doing things when we're half asleep that we won't remember later.

Don't be too jealous. :) I asked him if I could take a picture when he took a job that would have him out of town a week or more a month. And he agreed because I was also pressing for a backup therapist, and he didn't like that idea. And he wasn't always so cheerful about calls either, never mind midnight ones. It took years and a lot of work to build this relationship.
