> But when I did call... guess what... I _was_ comforted, but not the way I had expected -- not the way listening to my ex's voice on the phone used to comfort me (though it also upset me at the same time). I was comforted because listening to her voice made me remember who she is! Something about it clicked in my brain and made my feelings of loss subside quite a bit.

> I called her voicemail two more times tonight... just to remind myself of who she is... which inevitably reminds me of what a good therapist she is.

I too call my therapist's vm when I need a boost (and she's ok with that). But I think it's great that it your case, it had really positive results beyond just comfort. It sounds like you're going into the sessions (did you get two?) in a better frame of mind.

> Does anyone else feel the main "crush" emotions in the therapist's absence, and experience these emotions subsiding while in session? Just wondering.

Totally. There are times I feel odd discussing "transference" issues, when the feelings aren't so strong when we're face to face. Why aren't they? In any case, this should maybe work in your favor (at least with respect to the neg feelings) when you see your therapist this week, huh? Good luck!
