New Therapist


I finally got in to see my new therapist today. I have already had to make a contract with her not to quit if things become uncomfortable, because she would back off and work on some thing else for a while. Just from the basic interview questions she said we had a "plate full" to work on. She had to work me in on a lunch hour next time to get me in as soon as she wanted to see me back, and that impressed me. I booked up with her ever two weeks through October now. I did tell her about the flash backs and the lost block of time and they were not related to drinking in any way. She seemed interested. Maybe this is going to work. I told her I really needed some extra support right now and she agreed. I am hopeful this is the right step. I am trying to work on my problems,so that can't be all bad.

I'm glad that your therepist is willing to work with you and that you have the contract.
My psych Doc.told me today that I'm doing a lot better than I was 2 months ago. I guess the adjustments that were mad to my medications are working.
I hope things go that well for you as well. Hugs and Blessings.Mike G.said that!(It's an A.A.thing!)
