Ugh. Two weeks!
Well, we'll do our best. :)
Do you have anything with her voice on it? I have a tape my therapist made for relaxation. One of those guided relaxation breathing ones. I also have a compilation of his best answering machine taped messages. I almost never listen to either. Mostly when I want to touch base I call his answering machine and hope he doesn't pick up. It seems more personal somehow. And I've got some photos of him and his old office on my computer as well. The photos of him don't help much because he doesn't look anything like how I see him, but the office photos are very reassuring.
Do you have any transitional objects like that to use to maintain the connection between sessions?
I love to read about therapy too. I collect therapy stories in books, and also in movies and on TV. My poor husband thinks I'm nuts.
