Oh, I think you've described my pdoc pretty well. I don't know if he talks about me, but I do feel his frustration (maybe projection) that if I just tried harder, I would be better. But he is a CBT guy.

It's very invalidating at times and I call him on it a lot, that he's assuming I'm someone I'm not, lumping me in some sort of imaginary group he thinks exists of those who need to "try" harder.

Maybe it's like my father--a B was never good enough; I had to have that A. Hmm, there's a projection for you, that I think my pdoc expects more of me than he actually might.

Is it possible for them to keep these thoughts out of the room? I'm not sure. I just don't think so--so I don't think your T thinks that way about you Daisy, or Dinah, or anyone who feels unconditional positive regard from their T.
