I am so sorry about your stupid pdoc. My therapist/pdoc who is an analyst calls me by my first name. I would freak if he called me Mrs. xxx. The only time I get annoyed with a doctor calling me Mrs. xxx is when they know I am Dr. xxxx, and refuse to give me the curtosy. I just got a new PCP, and he calls me Dr. xxx. I was surprised, and he said he likes talking to me and tells me his stuff. He is very anti ECT, and so I alreay like him a lot. He was telling me about his messy divorce and how his kids are doing, etc, and we were just chatting like old friends. HUM. He is probably close to my age. I have never had a doctor be this way, and yet I know he is supposed to be good. He was the Chief of Internal Medicine at a good hospital in the area before he moved to my county.

I had a physical on Saturday, and I cannot believe I let him touch my body, but I did. No Gyn exam; I have a female gyn doctor. But still. He was just chatting away, aNd me too, and I litterally forgot what he was doing. Maybe I just dissociated.

I had a psychiatrist once who was as formal as you describe, and I dumped him quick. Also what is this crap about the past is the past, and the future is here to be molded as if you can divide your self up into a past person, a present person, and a future person. HUM. When I say that to my T, the past is the past; it's over aNd so what is the point of getting into it, he laughs at me and my transparency in this regard as of course the past, present, and future are all important, and the past impacts on the present in ways we don't always recognize until we are in therapy. If this is how he lives his life, then I feel sorry for him. He sounds like one uptight dude.

Do you have any idea what you will do now? He doesn't deserve to work with someone as good and caring as you.
