Thanks so much for your understanding. I wish I could say as much to my husband who was just giving me a hard time for going to this board. He's so f'ing supportive sometimes!(i'm being sarcastic). I'm sure I haven't been much of a pleasure to live with over the past couple of years, but he certainly isn't helping matters right now.

Anyway, back to your post, I saw my old therapist only for 6 months. She had to terminate becasue it was the end of her internship (big mistake to go into therapy with an inexperienced intern). She had no idea howto handle transference and it clearly scared the hell out of her which made it even worse and more shamefulo for me. My new therapist is very experienced and feels comfortbale (I think) dealing with transference. Wehave just strated talking about it and she admitted that she has been waiting for it to happen. She doesn't think I can deal with it unless I'm involved in a transference reaction. I'm hoping she is right and that somehow these feeling will diminish. Have they for you? I think I have been struggling with it today in particular is that I am kind of upset that I won't be seeing her for three weeks. I feel so pathetic being upset about this.

Thanks for the tips on what to do. I will talk to her about it more during my next appointment. In the mean time I'll just deal and post messages and listen to everyone's experiences and insight. I msut go put the kids to bed... Thank you so much for listening and sympathizing..
