Dr. Lynn I posted this on the therapy board too. I'm really interested to hear your opinion on this.

My therapist just told me that I'm obsessed with the surgery I have to go through. Well I was told I need surgery with general anesthisia. Is there anyone half normal in this world who would not be scared, concerned, nervous.... about a surgery?!?!? Yes for about 3 days this is all I talked about, read about and tried to find out any other solution. I still don't know what, where and when and if I'm going to try alternative medicine, but I have calmed down alot. I smile again. I"m back to normal activities (actually I continued doing everything besides cooking. Thank G'd for ready made food :-). I see the light at the end of the tunnle. WHY ON ALL EARTH DOES SHE CALL ME OBSESSIVE???? SHouldn't she help me feel good about myself. It's ok to have all these fears and worries. She wants me to go back to the Psychiatrist and get reevaluated. I'm so mad! Why does she want to drug up copletley normal and real feelings? WHy does she deny me the right of having real feelings?

I can't speak for your therapist, but it might be helpful to address your feelings with her. I think it's normal to be concerned about surgery. Hopefully, your surgery and recovery will not disrupt your life too much! Refuah shalayma!

just wanted to tell you that I talked to my T about it. She apologized for calling obsessive. We discussed all the issues and I feel better now.
