Being a little hard on yourself? I think so, and I, of course, say that as sweetly and as nicely as possible.

Given all the years I've been in therapy, and how I feel about my T, you'd think I would have given her LOTS of gifts, but I haven't. Beautiful white roses once, just because I saw them right before I was going to see her and I know how much she loves flowers, and a book on tape that I thought she would like. And something homemade at the holidays, my standard gift. Not much, given the thousands of hours I've spent w/her. So does that make me cold or a heel? Nope, not to me. It may mean something, but not that!

I would never, ever give anything to my pdoc. It has never occurred to me in three years or so. I don't think he would accept anything, anyway, and I would never ask. Cold and heartless? Yes, in this instance. (him or me?)

But you're right. It's something to think about, but it doesn't reflect what kind of person you are because I, for one, reject that type of image of you!
