what my therapist said

"One type of 'client' I can't deal with are those angry women who lead everyone one else around them into believing that they are the victims of events actually caused by their own behavior. I can't deal with them because they remind me too much of my own mother, so I think they could be better treated by some other therapist who doesn't have these kind of issues."

Do you think he's trying to tell me something?

I don't feel angry. Most of the time, I feel numb and, once in a while, I feel very sad, and I always feel tired. And, while I don't think I'm a victim, I do think (with some statistical justification), that I've had a streak of incredibly bad luck and that there wasn't much I could have done to predict or prevent it.

But, of course, I could be wrong. After all, the road to hell is paved with six-cornered bricks.

I think it's kind of an unprofessional thing to say, whether or not he think it applies to you...

It's a huge boundary violation, and sucks, to boot. Any chance of finding a different therapist?
