Thursday, I showed up at my therapist's office, on time for my appointment. Due to my vacation and then his I missed two appts. Needless to say I really looked forward to this session. So, I'm sitting, waiting, 5min passes and he comes to me to say that he needs to talk to another T in the office (not about me...Yes, he says that) he'll be about 5min. Okay fine, I have a good book... by the time he gets back I will only have misssed perhaps 12min. Well, I sat there for 25min!!! And when I've had enough... I went to my car. I started it and fully intended on leaving but then felt guilty... so I sat there trying to decide what to do, about 5min, when T came out. I waved like I wasn't doing this anymore today when he came to my car. Telling me it was an emergency, how unreasonable I was for being upset about this and, I'm wasting the remainder of the therapy time!! I'm wasting the time, what the fuck!? I seriously wanted to flip my shit right there. So, I did not go in for the 20min session (at best 20min!!), and he said he wouldn't charge me for the session. Oh, by the way, being kept waiting in the wait room is not new, it's happened a few times before, it just hasn't happened in a while. When I DID bring up my irratation it was agreed that I would wait 15min, leave and reschedule. So, is it me being unreasonable and selfish or is it T being a complete asshole and taking advantage of me, my illness or both?
