It makes me feel good to see that I'm not alone in being uncomfortable with this - throwing around serious diagnoses in session, etc.

Good point about using diagnoses for insurance purposes. Unfortunately, I know that isnt the case here. For one, I pay out of pocket without using any insurance. Otherwise though... On my receipt when I pay her, she always writes the code for "adjustment disorder NOS". I asked her once how I'd landed that diagnosis, and she said she writes that on almost everyone's receipt/insurance info because it's so bland and doesnt tell the insurance more than they need to know. I appreciate that from her.

I was pretty hurt and bothered by this Tues, the day it occured, and for a few days after. I'm feeling a lot better now. To me, my coping with this and the placed I'm at now with it, even though it bothers me, is further evidence that I'm NOT all the things she's labeling me as. Not once did I call or email her about it, or hurt myself in any way, or do anything really over the top. I know it'll hurt just as bad the next time she says it, and it's still definitely something I want to discuss with her next session (every 2 weeks), but for now, I can accept that she is just wrong about me and that's her problem if she wants to argue otherwise. I think that's a healthy mindset. I do think that everyone's support and validation here had a big hand in that too though. Thank you.
