Yeah - I'm glad she got an appointment that quickly, also. Her mom was amazing in how she handled the situation when JE told her what was going on. She casually got the kids out of the house, called a counseling center, reported it from there, and I know at least the kids never saw him again. He was arrested when he got home from work and thankfully plead out eventually, so no testimony was necessary. He admitted, in his pre-sentencing report, to molesting 15 different kids - both boys and girls (which is not very common, is it?). Uggh.
Linda called today to cancel my appointment on Monday, so I don’t go again until next Thursday. Well, I wanted to handle this on my own. Guess this is a good start, but I feel a bit abandoned, her imposing a 2 week break on me. Oh well. It’s probably good. I was becoming too dependent on our sessions anyway.
It is not as common for men to abuse both sexes, but it happens, I think more than most people realize.
I'm sorry to hear that Linda canceled on you. I imagine it is hard to not take it personally, though I am sure that is not how she meant it. It may give you some time to sort things out for yourself so you can see where you are with your progress. I'll be here too if you want to talk about anything.
Sounds good. Some down time would be nice, wouldn't it? It may be that you just need rest. It can make a lot of difference in how you feel.
Talk to you soon,
