What is YOUR problem?

Posted on Mon, Sep 7, 2009 at 2:58 PM

You're my therapist. Look, I'm sorry I missed our appointment two weeks ago. But as I said, it was a misunderstanding. YOU'RE the one who is supposed to have it together, to be mature. When I emailed you back regarding the missed appointment, why didn't you respond? It's been almost two weeks since I wrote. Why are you being such a bitch?

Is it because I asked you when you would like to have our next appointment? I know you prefer that I tell you the days that I am available. But what I was trying to say, was "Okay, you pick the day." I mean, you already know my general schedule. What is so damn hard about replying to emails and phone calls? Why does it usually take at least FIVE DAYS for you to respond?

Also, I'm pretty sure I should get a new therapist/psychologist anyway. I'm bi-polar type II. When I was diagnosed by my doctor over 2 years ago, you told me that you don't know much about that area. So what is the fucking point, when you obviously have no interest (or time?) to educate yourself about it?

You also treat other members of my family. I sometimes don't appreciate the way you encourage my sibling to go off in flights of fancy. Or to trust people that are obviously bad for them. I realize that they have to make their own mistakes. But really, come on. Sometimes I wonder if you have their best interests at heart. Or are we just another paycheque to you?

So - SUCK IT UP. Either start acting like the grown-up therapist your are supposed to be, or I'll cut you loose. It isn't easy, after years and years of therapy with you. But I'm beginning to think that there is no other option.
