Oddly enough I remember a snippet of a dream from the night before last. I was about to call my therapist to say that I needed to see him immediately. Did he have any open times today? There was a real feeling of urgency to it.

I imagine my subconscious was chiming in with its opinion. It is rarely subtle.

Or maybe it was just because Tuesday's session was really bad. I think maybe that my therapist is like the little girl with the curl in the middle of her forehead. When he's good, he's very very good. But when he's bad, he's horrid.

I don't think that's just my flawed perceptions either. Though I admit they may play a role.

He started the session by bringing me back as he texted. When I sat down, he said he wanted to finish this, and did. He started to talk to me as he sent the text, but I politely didn't respond until he finished and put down the phone. I didn't want to interrupt his texting. (grin)

I wondered why he hadn't just finished texting before he brought me back, but at session end I discovered that he considered the time to start when he brought me back, not when he was ready to start.

It set the tone for the whole session. And I don't think that's because of my perceptions. Texting in session is bad form for a therapist, I think, particularly if he wants to charge for it. And he was off the rest of the session too.
