> Hi Dinah,

I wonder sometimes. I know I need him sometimes, and I worry that if I only see him sometimes he won't be all that helpful to me when I need him.

> Sounds like something to be really "curious" about though. Will you talk to him about it?

Probably. He's been normalizing my feelings so much lately that I wonder why on earth he thinks I need to see him. I've been thinking of asking.

> I'm so sorry to hear about your mom. Don't feel like you can't call us or him the second you need (or don't need to). You could always just want to. Consistency (or habit) is sometimes comforting in and of itself.

I like that idea! My therapist says that I can call just because I want to, but I like your way of saying it better. It sounds more therapeutic.

My mother got in touch with one of her regular doctors, who isn't being as horrible as the ones at the hospital. He encouraged her to transfer to the hospital he's at if they give her any more trouble. I swear, these doctors had my mild mannered uncle actually calling them names to their faces, so they must have been every bit as bad as my mother said they were.

Funny but sad story. Surgeon came in at 11pm and told her to sign a release to amputate her leg below the knee. When she said she wanted to learn more, see xrays, get a second opinion, etc. he told her he was tired, had been there since 4am and wanted to go home and to just sign it. From her account, she told him he was free to go home, but she wasn't going to sign away her leg without a good reason why just because he was tired. I imagine the reality was somewhat less polite and rational.
