My Mood: I made a mean face at the therapist

Default I made a mean face at the therapist

I made a mean face at the therapist this morning. Wasn't there to see her, appointment was for the psychiatrist. I had known I was going to do this ahead of time. The therapist said hello C, and I glared at her and scowled horribly. I hope none of the other people in the waiting room noticed. Anyway, I scowled then looked back at my phone.

I didn't expect to feel bad about making a mean face at the therapist. I feel really rude and unkind. I intellectually know that my actions can't hurt the therapist, but I still feel guilty. I just wanted her to know I'm really angry with her and we are not good. Not that she cares.

Has anyone else felt guilty for doing something like this? I feel ridiculous.

Do you think you can talk to her about feeling angry and about feeling guilty when you see her next?

Maybe. I don't really feel like talking to her much at the moment. I want my self righteous fury back...0

I have treated my T like **** and regretted it horribly. He didnít deserve it, and had been trying to help me. I apologized profusely - there is no excuse for rudeness in my books. Now when Iím angry at him I talk to him about it, instead of treating him like crap.

I feel horribly guilty but simultaneously don't want to apologize.

And I don't really think making a mean face would require me to apologize profusely, would it? I can apologize when I am in the wrong, but I don't think I did anything so bad that it requires groveling. Did I?

But I don't like the way she looked at me like she was expecting me to smile and say hello. And it felt like she waited forever and I just grimaced at her like an asshole.

I think I was trying to hurt her and I'm not proud of that. I was also trying to let her know I was angry without sending an angry text, but this wasn't a good way to do it. She wouldn't do that to me.

My childish action has backfired on me badly.
