> Better to spend your gift giving energies on a real relationship. One that you don't have to worry about 1) what if they retire? 2) what if they move? 3) how many patients do they have? 4) what if they see me driving past their office?

My T would not be happy to hear our relationship discribed as not real. It is asymetrical by definition but it is real. Exploring the above questions with my T has been an important part of my work. He is not the only person I have had transferrance issues with and sometimes they have harmed me greatly. In my therapy I am learning why I do this and what I am looking for in these relationships. I am at the point where I think I will never have that kind of harmful transferrance realtionships and that will make my life better. It is one of the things I needed from therapy.
