'Aaah, I don't want to hear about the food'!

Posted by rnny on April 20, 2010, at 23:01:08

I have a binge eating disorder and for the first time was discussing this with the new T. I mentioned something I had eaten and was about to say what I had eaten before that and she blurts out, hand up, "Aaah, I don't want to hear about the food". I find that terribly unprofessional and intend on discussing it with her next week. My response to her was "Oh, are you a binge eater yourself?" because some binge eaters don't want to hear about food by name because it makes them want to binge. She said she wasn't but I find that reaction unacceptable and as usual I don't discover these things until after the fact. I mean during it I found it very unacceptable but I was more in the groove, the "we're in therapy right now" mentality. Well, I am the person behind the mask that was grooving and she is going to be getting to know the real me. I have hired her as a consultant to help me with my mental, emotional and psychological issues and that includes topics she may find distasteful. (No pun intended), haha. I also indicated the romantic habits of someone I had dated and then apologized for perhaps giving too much detail and she said, "Well that's OK if you tell me here in therapy but say I was over at your house and we were having tea, that is not something you would want to share" and I was thinking, "What the heck"? It was just a reference to a romantic gesture!. I mean she's a woman, I am a woman. . I know she said that right after I said, "Oops, sorry about that" when I blurted out myself something about Dan's romantic side. I understand fully I am not there to discuss men per se with her but as a T I did not think twice about saying something about a man I had dated. And if I was having tea with another woman I would most definitely discuss a man's romantic side if his name came up whether I knew her well or not. I mean what else is there to talk about? The tea?
