> I found my t's parting comment funny in an odd sort of way. She said, "So I will see you a week from Monday." What an interesting spin. Today is Tuesday, so I will see her in exactly two weeks. "A week from Monday" is correct BUT she implys it's only ONE week when it's really two. Am I making sense?

Hmmm... It does seem like a deliberate word choice, doesn't it? I'd hope the positive spin was to make you feel grounded in how quick it will seem, not to minimize her absence. Though my therapist would definitely do that too.

> AND now that I'm complaining ... I ran into this stinking client that comes after me. I HATE running into her. I have tried leaving down a different staircase, stalling in the bathroom, and she is always THERE. I almost stopped dead in my tracks and went back up the staircase until I realized she would eventually see me down the hall. She bugs me.

Ugh. That would bug me too. I see my therapist's other clients sometimes (though at the two main offices he's ever had, the setup was such that it would be a viewing at a distance), but I rarely see any one with regularity. If it was one who was as you've described this one, it would totally ruin the post-session slow ascent into normalcy.
