Psychologist on vacation for 3 weeks :(
reneegigliotti posted:
I'm very sad and a little scared because my psychologist is leaving for a 3 week Passover vacation Sunday. I've never been alone without her this long (ok thats very babyish, I'm sorry). I had an appointment with my Dr. G this week and he smiled and said "we'll be fine" (meaning he and I). It was sort of cute. What do all of you do when your therapist goes on an extended vacation? I want to prove I'm a grown-up and can be on my own for a month (with Dr. G) but I'm feeling like a little kid being left home alone for the first time.

Any advice?

I totally get what you are saying. Few weeks ago I thought I could switch to every other week for seeing my psychologist. It proved to me that I was not ready, so much happens in 2 weeks. So for now I am back to every week until I feel stronger. But for you hon you have an amazing Dr. G to help that sounds very supportive and will be there as needed. Plus you have this board and we can all help support you as often as you need.
Stay Strong!

Hey there Renee,

I'm sure, that with the help of you Dr. G and keeping busy, you will be fine! You will be surprised with how strong you are! I know it's hard - my therapist has been on vacation several times in teh past - but when i know ahead of time, it made it easier because I could somehow mentally and emotionally prepare myself. I just made sure to keep myself extra busy and tried to not think about it and also, that I wanted to prove to her that I could do it and make her proud - so that also helped.

Also, no, not babyish! It's normal! We develop a special connection with our tdocs, so it's normal to feel the way you are when they are gone for a brief time!

Post as much as you want/need while she is away and no, we won't get sick of you!

Forgiveness is letting go of the hope that the past could have been any different --Unknown
