Default Re: Terrible Session

She emailed me after session because I left some stuff in her office by accident. She also said this in the email:
ďPlease know my intention was not to upset you. Although it is extremely uncomfortable, I do think it is important to have these conversations and challenge your thinking. I do not like ending on such notes and I wish we had more time today. For that I do apologize. Please let me know how the week goes for you.Ē
I emailed her twice after that, though, trying to talk about what I was feeling. She never responded, and she always responds. Kinda just hurt me more there. I wish I hadnít sent those emails now, I feel dumb.

Maybe she went home.
Maybe she had to go to the market and cook dinner.
Maybe she has a family thing that needs her attention.
Maybe she is trying to get ready for the holidays.
Dont take her lack of response so personally. It was extremely kind of her to write you the first time and she clearly cares.

That is all possible, and itís otibably something like that. Iím just in a bad mood right now and a little mad at her for pushing me in the way she did, so I think that might be why Iím taking it so personally.

Iím sorry, MRT. Does she often push you? Iím someone who wouldnít be up for being pushed at all. I would be upset, too. I think itís ok to be mad- I would feel free to let her know how her pushing you affected you.

Sometimes she pushes me, and I donít mind it, actually, usually I want her to. Right from the beginning, she made it clear to me that she has very high expectations for me (Iím a medical student, thatís a large part of why, she also knew me from groups before I saw her/was on the treatment team with exT), and I donít mind that. But usually she wouldnít keep going when she knew I was that uncomfortable. Perhaps she didnít realize the extent of my discomfort. Perhaps she thought that I needed to be pushed anyway. I donít know, but I know that I had an awful day today because of it. Iím a little drunk, now, because I couldnít decide between studying and drinking, so I decided to do both at once because if Iím self-destructing, why not go all the way, right...? Iím gonna email her again soon, even though I probably shouldnít. She definitely is not going to be happy with this behavior, but I donít even freaking care at this point.

What you are studying shouldn't affect how she practices or any expectations she might (mistakenly) hold about you. This attitude would piss me off big time.

I'm so sorry about this situation! I would be so mad, too! And about her lack of response, too! Why would she mail you with the questions and then not reply? Rationally I do understand she had other responsibilities but I'd be so mad, anyway. I feel for you. This kind of thing always sucks.
I hope you two resolve this situation soon.
