I've never had any reason to feel rejected by my therapist, but when I first started seeing her, I was so afraid I'd start to feel comfortable, gain some weight then my HMO would say I was no longer sick so they wouldn't pay for anymore. My fear was that emotionally I would still be feeling like crap, only all my wounds would be left opened. It took me a long time to finally admit that my early resistance to therapy was because of that fear. Once I told her this, she assured me that the intent of the treatment wasn't just to get me eating again, but to fully address the issues behind the disorder. We still have to re-address this when my trust level goes down, but over all I'm glad shared that fear and began to trust.
