Pinkeye -
15ish years ago, I abruptly quit therapy, after being with the same T for 5 years. And although it was my doing, it was still quite painful (Crushedout can relate, I'm sure).

But it does get better. At first, I would be happy that I got through the month with no appointments. And month by month, it kept getting easier, where soon, and I don't remember "when", but I stopped counting ... 6 or 7 months? I just don't remember. I kept on living my life.

However, shortly after I quit, my husband divorced me. That was 2 major losses within a few months of each other. I did seek out professional help, but she was totally opposite my T. My T was psychodynamic and I switched to this Zen-type person, with candles and hugs and yuck. But it was a change, and she helped me with the loss of my therapist and husband. I only stayed with her for maybe 6 months (tops).

I guess what I am trying to say, with time, the loss will not be as painful. Do things for yourself. My "Zen T" kept asking me that question, "what does Annierose want to do with her life now?" Figuring I had nothing to lose at that point, I did open my own business, which I still have today. I took all that energy, and put it towards a productive goal. Good Luck. It is a difficult and worthwhile journey!!
