Running for the hills!-(LONG)

Posted by B2Chica on January 14, 2005, at 18:16:22

no, not me....my psychological helpers.
i'm beginning to think there is this invisible around me when i talk with psychologist that shines "RUN AWAY...VERY FAST!!"
-First reminder that the one i FINALLY FOUND -and just as i found him had personal issues come up and had to close practice....(at my more paranoid times i feel that i somehow caused it.) it just seems that way...have had Many instances that happen "coincidentally". ...i know...be rationale.

So, OK.
i've "interviewed" (not sure what else to call it) several other T's. Thought i'd even break down and try female ones. -Huge step for me ;^) (insert pat on back here)
-One-which i liked-said right off the bat that wasn't her area of specialty and couldn't help me. (i liked her honesty-i respect and appreciate that).
-The next one sounded like she could see me at first but the more we talked at the end she said well, i mispoke and am not taking on any new patients but i could give you a few other names"...so i pretended to write them down.
-Next one sat three inches away from me the entire time and kept talking about all her other patients and how quickly they got well. (despite all this she is my most likely candidate) She went on and on about privacy...that's good.
-Next one-first clue-first 5 min talked about my insurance and payment. then, i thought was going very well but toward the end i asked about how often she could see me (i was thinking twice a week)she said once a week to start but she "doesn't want to teach dependance and will get me to once everyother week or go from there"...well i have a hard time with words sometimes and was explaining...yes explaining why i thought i needed twice a week (as if i had to explain it) anyway, somehow she misunderstood (as i always seem to be) and thought i was blaming my last T for my S. attempt and WOW ddid prickly defensive lady step out of the closet! For the next 5 minutes she LECTURED me on how She was Not responsible for MY Actions, that I Was. and she couldn't control what i did after i left her office and she Wouldn't take responsibility for that! I was speechless. After that lecture i felt like running screaming out the door, but she paused, smiled and said "so...should we set up an appointment for next week???"
EEEEEEEEEEEKKKKKKKKKK!!!!!!!!!

was supposed to see pdoc tonight and got call this morning saying he had an emergency and need to reschedule. I think i can handle this delay but boy with my luck right now...i do pray that the emergency was not in his personal life. Both for selfish reasons (can't handle loosing him). but also, cuz i'm quite attached to him as a person, Respect him greatly as a pdoc, and he's not a pill pusher. he's really a good doctor and a great person. this world could use more of him!

ok, so here's my tension screaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaam

hope i didn't blow any eardrums.
thanks for letting me vent.

-Next tues. i have pdoc rescheduled and have evening appt. with "close" lady.
i have to laugh. reading over this i feel like chandler on 'friends' when he talks about not finding the right woman but then complains about things like "her head's too big". i think that's me...
i need to just DO IT! and stop stalling. or being so picky or Something.

aaaaaaarrrrrgggggggghhhhhhhh!
ok, i'll go home now.
later all.

Hi B2Chica,

I think the invisible negative force that surrounds me at job interviews got loose and attached itself to you. I'm so sorry, I hope you find a therapist that has a positive force around her (pat on back)that is stronger.

You will have to post how it goes with "close lady." I can't stand anybody sitting close to me, I'd be pushing my chair, or whatever I'm sitting on, away from her until there's appropriate space- like three feet.

Then again, "close lady" talked about how quickly her patients get well. Maybe if I let my T sit closer to me, I'd get well? Actually, if I talked about what I really need to, I could shout it across the room, so maybe physical closeness is not the cure for me.

I don't blame you for screaming after your interviews. I'm proud that you didn't scream during them.

I finally got a temp job, which will go another month or so, I hope you find that perm therapist before I'm back in temp employee limbo.

Poet

I bet you feel so frustrated yet it is kinda funny like the part on Chandler I do not think that is the case with you but it was cute. It sounds like you ran into a lot of odd T's and btw who gives a T the right to lecture the one who HIRES them....jeeze...HUGS..The way you wrote your post NOT your post or the meaning made me lol your wording is so cute

that dang thing...(invisible force)
even though the close thing bothered me, and her going on about "other happy ending" clients. two things she kept saying over and over was 1)this is a safe place, i want you to think of this office as a safe place, for anything. things you say or don't say.
and 2)about privacy, she went on and on about how imortant client information was so private and she didn't even have a secretary type up reports and such.
Those two things are why i'm going to see her again.

> I don't blame you for screaming after your interviews. I'm proud that you didn't scream during them.

-it's just a matter of time...;^)

> I finally got a temp job, which will go another month or so, I hope you find that perm therapist before I'm back in temp employee limbo.

CONGRATS!! that's Awesome! lets cyber celebrate! cupcakes for everyone.

thanks poet.

-almost more than a lecture, she just freaked out on me. well, when i asked her to tell me about her/her background experience she said about two sentences and it was something like that she's here because she wants to listen and help...That's it. usually i get a 5 min schpeal (which is good i want to know about their experience and education). well, then i asked her if she's worked with someone with my dx before. she said "not specifically but then each person is different and a person not a diagnosis"...blah blah blah. well, -i started to wonder....finally i found out after proding her that she was Not a psychologist, she had been working as a nurse (not even a psych nurse)for 20 years and is working on her LMHP...yikes. so she has no degree other than nursing and obviously no experience. i know you gotta start somewhere but...to be frank...not with me.

-ya gotta love Chandler. i also love it when he said something about running and leaving a chandler shaped whole in the door. (like in cartoons) i LOVE THAT! that's what i felt like doing in that place.

thanks.

That's So Funny! i'm glad you get it. sometimes i've done that too-like with your husband. my hubby usually doesn't get it cuz i'm thinking of a movie or show and he doesn't know the context. most people aren't amused...(but that makes me want to laugh even more..snicker!)
