I hear so much suffering in your posts, so much hurt. I don't think therapy and therapist are the cause but sometimes it does feel that way. I understand your shut down. It does seem sometimes that we HAVE to stop thinking about it completely or we wil get overwhelmed with the pain.
The only way I know of to handle these situations is keep talking about them, to try to understand why you feel so strongly. It isn't easy. Nothing is as painful as unrequited longing.
I wish you peace soon.
