Annierose's '10'

Posted by annierose on January 11, 2008, at 22:52:22

Ten Reasons Why I Don't Want To Go To Therapy on Monday ...

1. Therapist was late twice in a row this week. (She's never late)

2. Therapist just came back from a 2 week vacation and told me today she will be leaving in two weeks for another week's vacation.

3. I feel kicked in the gut.

4. Therapist reminded me that I always do better than I think I do while she is on vacation. This felt minimizing.

5. Therapist began today's session by telling me that "she can now accommodate me on Thursday
mornings" when it was HER SCHEDULE that necessitated the change. I liked Friday mornings. I was angry that she turned that around as if I was happy about the new schedule. Thursday suited my work schedule, but not my emotional schedule. Her choice of words felt manipulative.

6. T has decided working 3 days a week will suit her just fine. When I began therapy, she worked 5 days a week, now it's only 3. Feels like there is no time for me. Feels like I'm being pushed out. Plus, with all her vacation time (I think it's up to 8 weeks a year) I'm guessing she really doesn't want to be doing this job now or in the future. It might be time to look for a new therapist who works full time and likes her job.

7. I wonder if I'm the only client that pays her full session rate (x3) ... and I'm pretty sure I pay the highest per session rate. This is starting to really bug me. I get raised EVERY SINGLE YEAR! It seems no one on this site has been raised more than once. She has a listed rate on a web site that is less than I pay (reason why it's really pissing me off). Plus I go 3x per week. She should take that into consideration.

8. Today when she was explaining blah, blah, blah about her shorter work schedule, it felt like I was
listening to Charlie Brown's teacher ... ever have one of those moments? It took all my strength to simultaneously not laugh out loud and not put my hands over my ears.

9. I feel hurt. I am scared. I am angry.

10. I hate therapy.
