Our expert says:
It sounds like something very odd is going on with your shrink. For her to call you "a ' -|- ing bitch'" is highly unprofessional and peculiar. It was wrong of her not to have read your fax, at the very least while you were there, and to try to answer the issues rauised. And whiplash is an irrelevant excuse --- either she is fit to practise and needed to do her work properly, or she was not fit, and should have cancelled appointments until she was fit.
Your comment about a "cash cow" rings a bell, too. All that emphasis on your needing a new job ( obvious already to you ) sounds like worry that you should be able to continue to afford sessions with her.
I wonder how many other patients she actually has left ( especially if she calls any of them a ' -|- ing bitch' as well ! Your previous message(s) suggested that she was not seriosul grappling with your problems, anyway. Maybe it's high time that you got a new, competent and active shrink ( don't assume we're all like her ), and you could make more progress in three months than in all the time you've been with her, from the sound of it.
Keep copies of your letter, for your own records, and to discuss with your new shrink. You sound capable of so much more achievement and progress than she was able to work with.
