So I talked to my therapist today at group and told her how I felt that I wanted to stay with her but she says that I can't.

I'm in a pretty bad mood right now to be honest.

Now I have to sit through two and a half hours of class. Can't wait. Sarcasm.

Well, I'll be back online later.

Wait, so maybe I'm a little behind with what's going on (sorry), but why can't you stay with your therapist?

So right now I'm in group

So right now I'm in group therapy and after I finish with the group, I'm still going to be seeing a therapist. And I was hoping that I could continue seeing the therapist I see now (who is one of the women that leads group) even after I'm done with group--just see her on an individual basis.

But she said the system's not set up like that :/

But she's so queer friendly and I feel like she's understood me and helped me more than any other therapist (I've had something like 7).

Dude, that's so unfair. I

Dude, that's so unfair. I don't know if that's the best system to follow. Shouldn't they let you get comfortable with one therapist? Once you trust someone, they shouldn't make you just switch.

Thanks! EXACTLY!! I

Thanks! EXACTLY!! I totally agree.
She gave me the name of a different therapist and told me to call this other therapist to see if this new one is still taking new patients. I should've called this afternoon but I don't want to switch therapists so I didn't call.

Of all people, your

Of all people, your therapist should understand that you can't just randomly pair up patients and counselors; the two have to "click", if you know what I'm saying here. It's hard to open up to someone you're only lukewarm about.

My therapist, K, said that

My therapist, K, said that once I meet a therapist, if I don't like the person K will help me find someone new. But still, it wont be K. I cant explain how much I want to stay with K. I feel more hopeful talking to I never would end my life. It sounds so cheesy but its true.

Thing is, if I tell her that, she'll think I'm trying to manipulate her, which I'm not. Its just the truth.

Then tell her about the

Then tell her about the manipulation angle, too. Just come completely clean... but why can't you stay with her?
