I'm about ready to call it quits with R. It's just not working. I've waffled on this for a long, long time (sorry!) but now I don't really feel like there's much of a choice anymore. My thoughts aren't organized enough for me to give a full explanation yet, but I will soon, and will keep you posted on what's happening in that regard.
Our session today was going okay, until we got to a point in our conversation when I had to stop him and say: "Please don't laugh. I don't think that's funny." Not getting into specifics at the moment, but suffice it to say that I was terribly offended by the way he reacted to something that I said. Something that was honest, and real, and not in any way comical.
It doesn't make a whole lot of sense to start shopping around for a new therapist when I'm only going to be in College City for a few more months (probably, depending on the Grad School situation, which is yet to be determined...) but I'm also not exactly confident enough in my emotional stability to go therapy-less until next fall, or whenever I get settled in whichever city I end up. So, my only reluctance is related to giving up the stability of current Treatment Center for the remainder of my time here.
Lots to think about, I guess. Stay tuned.
And to everyone who read my last post and made me feel like a champion at life, YOU ROCK.
