your t sounds wonderful
I almost cried when I read she gave you her socks. That is precious.
Everyone's suggestions are so good. She is leaving sooner than I thought (I got the days wrong which might be a good thing because I don't have time to "plan my escape" from therapy).
I go into HUGE FLIGHTS when she is gone. I don't need her, therapy is a joke, I can do it all alone...I will go back to school and keep very very busy...all that.....and so since she is leaving soon I decided to call and leave her a message that it might help me stay connected if she gave me something to hang onto until she came back. That way I would have to come back out of obligation to return her thing to her...I said it could even be a pencil, I don't care. The past few times she has gone on vacation I have always decided I was quitting therapy and I write her a good bye letter and am usually pretty distant when she comes back. It takes a while for me to warm up again, but I think if I am babysitting something of hers it might help.
Thanks again everyone
