Re: missing my T, but she's right there bent

Oh boy, do I know that feeling! When I was seeing my T, I missed him desperately between sessions. But when I was in the room with him, everything felt fine.

It did get easier, in time. Many people find it helpful to tell their T how they're feeling (I didn't get around to this until my very last session, and maybe I should have done it sooner!). Lots of people feel the longing between sessions, and your T can help you to deal with it.

Talking about it with your T might also provide more satisfying results for you than testing your T. If you tell her, then the two of you can deal with it head on, together. If you test her instead, you might find it harder to get the resolution you're looking for.

Of course, actually raising the issue in session takes some doing, especially when you feel logical. Would it help you to write it down? Then you can ask her to read it, or you can read it to her.

Hope this helps a bit.
