My behaviors -Let me be clear!

Posted by Looney Tunes on June 27, 2008, at 20:16:48

1) Just to be clear, I have never physically attacked anyone. In fact my personal space boundries are so large, that most people don't get close to me.

As for verbal attacks, most of my life is relatively quiet. I am shy and pretty much do what I am supposed to do. I "verbally attacked" my therapist once...after being provocked.

I have no sexual energy/transference at all. And have never even given any signals except "leave me alone."

2) Do I trust him? No. I have been with him 6 months. He has never said anything supportative even if I am putting myself down. He tells me I am difficult and that most other clients have no problem trusting their therapist. I grew up in foster care and he told me I was probably difficult if I was there. (When in truth I was removed from my biological family because of severe abuse..which I guess is my fault)

3) He stops me when I am talking and tells me that is not important. His agenda is more important.

4) My behaviors which are problematic include dissociating and flashbacks....and if I could control them, I would kiss the person that helped me. I have a behavioral problem with bulimia and self-harm. But I told him about those behaviors and he agreed he knew how to deal with them. We have not dealt with them. And the dissociation/flashbacks, he gets annoyed and tells me that I am avoiding and wasting time.

5) I am not saying that I am the perfect client. I am probably horrible.
But I worked with another therapist for a number of years before I moved and not once did I feel bad about who I am because of therapy. And the previous therapist never raised a voice at me...Yes, he was frustrated at times, but never kept telling me. And certainly never would have not allowed me from "becoming angry."

I quit.
