Actually I have told her several times after she has sent me emails that I would rather speak with her face-to-face. She seems to ignore my pleading and I think at this point I need a new way to approach. *I feel* that she can *seem* to be manipulative of my emotions. Could this be her way of getting a "rise" out of me? I don't know. However, she knows that face-to-face is better because: 1) I've told her several times, 2) she's a psychoneurologist with patients (!).
Given that information, what do you think?
Well, I'm sitting with her and my mother and son in her house right now. I did not respond to the text. She has not mentioned the text. And I have not mentioned the text. I want to give this a little more time and then I'll get back to you. Thank you for suggestions. Let's see what happens. (By the way, I have some personal knowledge of what it is to be a patient of a pychologist/psychiatrist...just FYI).
Also, thank you for your thoughts on professional psychologists and home life vs.professional life.
