> I've often thought that Pdocs get burned out by their patients. They get bored with their symptoms and with their complaints sometimes, just like we get bored with them.

What keeps proctologists going, then? I guess the end justifies the means.


It is quite possible that this doctor had a bad day, as was suggested. I don't think it helps to leave so early in a session, though. If there is dead air in the beginning, you never know what can come of things as time passes. Perhaps you can ask your doctor, "What should we work on today? My mind is blank."

In the middle of a session, if you suspect a lack of interest on the part of your doctor, perhaps you can ask him if the two of you are in sync that day.

I like to have an idea of something to work on if nothing else materializes. However, much can be hidden from you that can be seen by a professional. Often, things become visible to the both of you for the first time during an otherwise light conversation. It is a good strategy sometimes to drift a little at first. I like to be guided by the therapist, too. It really is a group effort.
