Excellent! I'll have to bring that up next time just to tweak him. :)
> But I hope that it's because you really are ready for it. I get that sense from you.

Thanks. I really think I am. He said he needed to "hear more about that", and I surprised myself by being able to actually describe it instead of vaguely saying I feel better and I can handle stuff better. That was sort of the deal maker for me. And apparently for him, too. So Nov. 1st it is. Better get busy on his gift when I can.
> Isn't it nice that they no longer close the door for good?

Yep, though it's getting a bit complicated at the clinic since they added a consultant psychiatrist. Seems they are getting referrals out the wazoo, so now the Ts are going to act as "gatekeepers" to the pdoc. So whenever I need to see my pdoc, even if it's already scheduled (I think...still not set in stone yet), I'll have to meet with my T first. I think it helps to know that I have a reason to be able to come in and say hi, because I think I'll probably wish to from time to time.

Thanks for your words, Dinah. It feels good to know that what others pick up on fits with what I'm experiencing, too. :)

Hope the pup is settling in.
