After seeing the same psychiatrist for about 8 years, I suddenly "LIKE" him. I'm having a hard time distinguishing between if he likes me or is just doing his job. (No, he hasn't "done" anything inappropriate) Logically, I tell myself he's just a really nice person and good at his job, but then there's the illogical side telling me to act on this. Thank God I only see him every 3 months, and usually I forget about him after a week or two from seeing him. So, I don't know what to do? Should I switch doctors?
No, you should not switch doctors, but you should talk to him about these feelings. If he is well trained he will be able to help you understand more deeply what this means, and that can be very useful to your treatment.
