And he also made false teeth!I went to my psychotherapy assessment session on Tuesday. It was a hard session. A very hard session. Mainly because I didn't really know what to talk about and I got called out on my tendency to say a lot without actually scratching the surface. Sex and sexual fantasies featured heavily and I just couldn't bring myself to really divulge them or even explain the ones I did share very well. When it came to questioning about cross-dressing a dissembled and changed the subject rather quickly. Go me. I can't even be open when it's likely to help. Also, the therapist ended the session rather oddly.
|No, I don't know who made this so I can't|
give proper credit. I do know it came from
SissyKiss though, so you should go there.
Before I get to the part that I'm not sure anyone will want to read I do want to share this: the therapist's ending statements. He said that he was confused because there were two opposing parts to everything that had been said in the session. Now, I don't see them as being opposing, nor even unconnected, but this is what he said. He said that on the one hand I seemed unable to understand my own or others' emotions and largely didn't seem to understand what the purpose of them was but, on the other, I gave this "deeply moving" account of someone who had put their own emotions to one side for most of their life while trying desperately to work out what other people wanted so that I could give that to them. On the basis of that dichotomy, he used that term, he wanted me to be checked out for being Aspergic. He believed, quite strongly, that most of my issues (not all, he was careful to add) were down to the fact that I was highly autistic and likely Asperger's Syndrome afflicted. So... uh... there you go.
It'll be two weeks until he writes the letter (no, really, he said it woud take that long) and, presumeably, a few weeks more before I get an appointment. Such is the way of things with our dotty Uncle NHS.
