> When I first started therapy with a psychologist back in 1970 in New York (I was 21 then), the fee was $25 per hour!!. I don't know how anyone can afford triple-digit charges these days, or even a so-called "reduced" rate. $125 sounds absolutely staggering to me. God knows how many millions of people are suffering because they can't afford counselling, not to mention the whole problem of finding the right meds for their depression.

I agree. Altruism and the medical establishment just don't seem to go together. Of course, I'm saying that out of ignorance of what liability insurance costs. His fee may be on the high side though. It may still be worth your while to check out fees in the L.A. area.

> You didn't offend me. And I apologize if I got you rattled. My depression and/or personality just makes me so super-sensitive and that's part of my overall problem, if you know what I mean.

I understand. I'm glad no offense was taken.

>I'll just tell you that I just turned 54 and my Mom is 74 and the maternal worrying never stops. I guess it's the so-called maternal instinct.

I chuckled out loud! I guess you've confirmed my suspicion about maternal worrying. I'm 40 and my mom's 65 and it's the same deal.

So, I've got 2 curiosity questions for you:
1. What do you teach?
2. What's the meaning/story behind "cubbybear"?

Catch ya later.
