Follow-up to my thank you note (Dr. G)

I just wanted to let you know that you were absolutely right. When I saw my psychiatrist today, he was all smiles and he told me that my letter "made his day". He was cute (can you say that about your psychiatrist? LOL). Anyway, it spawned a really deep discussion about our almost 2 decade old therapeutic relationship. This is a man, who straight out of residency until now, has pealed me off of more walls and talked me off more bridges (literally and figuratively) than I care to think about. Yet, he said he's learned so much from ME over the years. I was the one leaving the office in smiles. Hey, it beats psychotic mania. It makes me so sad that so many people who post on this sight aren't blessed with the same kind of therapeutic support I have. In some ways you fill that gap for a lot of people. You do a good job and a valuable job. Hashem has a calling for all of us.
