    Update, for Dr. Becker-Phelps

    Hi Dr. Leslie

    I went to my doctor appointment this morn. Went through all the usual stuff. Then, I asked my doctor if she could make that therapist appointment for me? She told me she could get me a new one, and that my old one was having some family problems. I asked how long he would be away, she isn't sure, maybe a couple more weeks? I told her I would wait.

    I want my old one. He is very good, plus he is an Native American, and has special ways of helping. I really like him, he made me feel like family. There isn't anything I can't tell him. He is so laid back, he makes you feel safe, you know? When I talk to him, its like I feel I want to open up to him. I don't understand his magic, but it works.

    I should get a call as soon as he returns. I had better, I need to talk to him!!! A.S.A.P.!!! Until then, I will have to rely on you, and the community members.

    With that, I bid you all a good weekend!!!

    I'm glad to hear you followed up on this. I hope your therapist returns soon.
