Thanks all, for your input. I ended up calling her about a half hour ago and left her a message saying I knew it was unlikely that she had anything, but if she did I'd like to come in, or maybe we could do a brief phone check-in. I told her I was just feeling overwhelmed and freaked out and panicky. She hasn't called me back yet, but I assume she will.

I think I need to fight my urge to be the perfect patient and make her like me, and instead focus on what I think I actually *need* from her and see if I can get that. I think actually asking for what you think you need can be less clingy/needy than not asking (and just desperately, pathetically wishing your needs would get met).

On the other hand, she's been worried that I'm "addicted" to her, and if that's all this is about, then it seems like a royal waste of my time and money. But I don't think that's all that's going on. I hope not. Geez.

Anyway, it's great to bounce this stuff off y'all and get your feedback. It really makes me feel less alone sometimes (even just reading the posts here).
