I didn't mean for anyone to get the wrong idea about Mr. S. I wish every one of you could spend a few sessions with him.
I appreciate Thesamesky for questioning whether I can get angry with T and confront him. I couldn't for a couple of years, but he would never have said what he did yesterday, either. Now, tho, I actually don't feel the need to be angry with him anymore. We have a great client/T relationship. It may take a week or two to bring something up, or sometimes I call/email as soon as I get home, but I have learned to share my fears and concerns with him - I don't often have to get angry to fix something. AND he is always gracious and understanding.
Then there is my daughter. She and Mr. S have an agreement with me that allows them to discuss me/my therapy. My daughter has no problem getting all up in his face, tho she hasn't ever done it - no need. They have a good relationship, too, she believes in his ability to . So believe me that I wasn't being mistreated.
Sorry Mr. S! I didn't mean to give the wrong impression.
