Interesting. I hadn't really considered a sexual attraction issue with a male therapist -- more of a physical aversion, which is why I asked if it was a given with a male that there would be very strict physical boundaries. I would be worried that I would be scared, which would be a big problem.
I understand what you are saying about setting parameters and limiting my options, should I choose to seek another therapist. I also understand what you said makes a good therapist. etc. before. But there's really no way to tell whether there is even a chance for it to work until I meet with them once or twice, right?
You are right - our experience has been different, and you are a female.
Don't you think, that barring the past few weeks, Linda has been pretty good? I mean, I felt comfortable with her until recently, and I think she has helped me. What do you think? (please give me your opinion and not a neutral "it's what you think that is important" response :) )
Yeah - the stomach cramping happened during the incident and lasted quite a while.
As for it being cold -- yes it was. It was the week before Halloween in Ohio, so it was pretty cold - not below freezing or anything, but cold, and because what was going on did not allow me to, let's say, stay bundled up, I was flipping freezing the whole time.
So -- you didn't answer my question about what I can do to work towards resolving the main issues while things with Linda are delayed?
