I see a therapist who, among other things, diagnosed me with anxiety and obsessive-compulsive disorder because I kept checking a certain child, convinced that something was wrong with this child after taking this kid to his doctor and a specialist. She referred me to a psychiatrist for medication and told me that if I didn't stop checking, she would recommend hospitalization. I took him back to the doctor again anyway, and that thing I kept checking and couldn't let go? It apparently wasn't all in my head. There is something wrong: no matter what my kid will need surgery and there's testing to see if it's something even more serious. With so many questions about my kid's health still, I am still really struggling with anxiety and would really like help. I am not sure, though, whether I should continue to see this therapist: I oscillate between thinking there's no way this therapist could have known there was something actually wrong on one hand and with how glad I am that I didn't let this go on the other. I have not seen the therapist again since the most recent doctor visit. So... should I fire my therapist?
