|I have never, and would never, try and put my cat on a leash. Poor kitty :( Why do I keep laughing at it though?|
Anyway, we're finally at the therapy session. My therapist is absolutely amazing. For a start she's a woman, and I find it much easier to talk to a woman, and also she did ask me some excellent questions. She was able to get things out of me and we talked about a lot of things I wasn't expecting to talk about, such as my sex life. Have you ever discussed masturbation with an older woman? That was kind of surreal. She asked me about things like the reasons I don't talk to my family, and even why I blog. I didn't really think about it much but it's social psychiatry to me too. The main blogs I follow are dealing with their personal lives, and I have actually played psychiatrist to a few of you guys.
There was one thing that never really came up. She asked me about my relationships and I said that I have had two significant ones. She only asked me about my second one, the one I've told you guys about. When I was 17 and had that girlfriend in college. The more important relationship is the first one though. She didn't ask me about it, and I didn't really see a chance to bring it up. It's the story I won't tell you guys. Although I did set up a second blog just to tell that story, so I'll probably do it eventually.
Anyway, she booked me in again for next Thursday, and I'm hoping that it goes just as well. She said that the assessment wasn't totally over, so maybe that first relationship will come up. She wrote about a full pages worth of notes on me. I almost wish I got a chance to read it. I was open with her though, and honest, and I surprised myself with how open I was. I hope I can keep this up.
Oh and a funny side story from the doctors. While I was in the waiting room I saw a box that had free chlamydia tests. Even though I'm not sexually active, and can not have chlamydia, I was tempted to take a test. I don't know a man who can resist peeing on a pregnancy test, I mean, you get two. One might as well go to the man. I sadly did not in fact take the chlamydia test. So, for all I know, I may in fact have chlamydia.
