Therapist issue, need advice
I have a lot of anxiety and been seeing my therapist for about a year now. Over the year, I've emailed her a handful of times (only when it's important - because I try not to abuse the privilege!). It's usually hit or miss.
Last week, I sent my therapist an email about things I have a hard time bringing up in person. At the end of the email, I even stated that my purpose for writing to her was because I found it hard to bring up those things face to face.
Unfortunately, this is one of those emails she did not respond to.
I feel incredibly awkward about going to my next appointment in a few days, expecting that she will probably bring up my email. I know it could be helpful in therapy to talk about difficult topics, but I have a much easier time expressing myself in my writing. In addition, (and maybe this is a result of my anxiety issues) I feel a little insulted by her lack of response. I know she has a life outside her job, but it was hard for me to write the email in the first place and some acknowledgement would have been nice.
I guess I'm just wondering what you all would make of this. My appointment is in a few days, and I feel awkward/insulted/frustrated...
