I'm curious that on the one hand you say the dream was obvious, but on the other hand you seem to find it a little disturbing. Is there anything going on in therapy (apart from your fears of abandonment) that you think he's not hearing or understanding?

I dream of my former T often, and he never ever speaks to me in my dreams, but he doesn't exactly ignore me; it's just that we don't really connect. So I'm interested that in your dream, not only did your T actually refuse to acknowledge you, he then went and spoke to other people about you. Are you concerned about confidentiality at all? Or could it be related to *your* knowledge about his accident? That's maybe something you're not supposed to know (even though it's probably not a big deal that you do know). But is it a burden to keep your knowledge of it under your hat, so to speak?

Maybe it would help if you told him you know about his accident and you're worried he might be thinking of retiring - especially since he did actually deny you an answer to your direct question.

As for the long black coat - I don't know about you, but I always associate long black coats with having a mission, perhaps a mission to save the world (e.g. Angel and Spike in Buffy the Vampire Slayer and Trinity in The Matrix). People in long black coats are often mysterious figures; they hide their innermost thoughts, but they seem to be troubled. They have hidden depths. Very appropriate attire for a therapist - should be standard issue!

And please do share your daydreams... especially THAT kind! I will if you will!
