I agree that your post belongs here as it relates to how you manage feelings about your therapist while she is away.

That said, I would think that it would be absolutely normal to react the way you did to the stuffed animal. (What a kind gesture on her part, by the way.) You were in a room full of people who didn't "get" you and who were incapable of relating to you or one another on a different level. Naturally, with all that in mind, the stuffed animal triggered your pain. You were missing the person in the world who probably understands you the most.

This might be a minor point or even a strange one, but what kind of animal is the stuffed animal? In Native American cultures and religions, as I understand it, different animals represent different things, and the universe tries to give you messages and symbols via animals. Why couldn't that work for the stuffed variety as well? :) You may find that a little "out there," but wouldn't it be cool if your animal meant comfort or peace or something like that?

Hang in there. You'll have to let her know how much her gesture meant to you.
