That kinda of a response would shut me down for weeks. My T has made a few mis-judged remarks, and they've done some damage to the flow of therapy -- and that's with me knowing and her admitting that they were ill-judged! If they'd come from a T who didn't validate my reactions so well, or didn't admit when she made mistakes? It would have shut me down pretty completely.

> I might have been too shocked to say anything at the time, but I'm sure he'd have gotten a call shortly after with "SUCK IT UP?!!!! YOU WANT ME TO SUCK IT UP?!!!!"

I'd like to rephrase Dinah's message here: "SUCK IT UP??? I'm a human being, NOT a vacuum cleaner! What, exactly, do you want me to SUCK UP?"

Of course, MousyMe here would *think* that, not say it. But I'd think it really loud!
