1:52 am - Thurs 5.22.2008
As I've said in here already, I'm very angry that this bullshit with availability at ArcLight is causing me to have to change therapists in mid-stream.
(The 7:00 p.m. Wednesday appointment I'd had with Javier was the only slot he had open, and I now have no guarantee I'll have that night off from one week to the next.)
There's a certain bitter irony that ArcLight has knocked out the one relationship I've needed to help me deal with ArcLight.
So anyway, yesterday I saw Phillip, my new therapist, for the first time.
I told him my deal - which was, in a nutshell, "I'm not happy about any aspect of my life right now..." (Starting with the fact that I was having to start up with someone new) - and he asked me a few questions (Amongst which was "Do you want to know anything about me?". To which I responded, "Not now, but I'm sure I'll have some questions as we go"), and then the hour was up.
He's going to be different from Javier - more "therapy", less "life-coaching" - and I don't know if he's ultimately what I want/need or not.
But he seemed smart, and empathetic, and
What else can I do?
