I don't know. Could be.
I don't think mine had anything to do with either parent. My attachment to him is based more on the fact that he feels like no one I've ever met before in my entire life.
He said something sort of intriguing today. He said that when he stands up from the chair he sits on in therapy, he transitions from therapist back to his normal self. So that when he's doing the paperwork of the visit, he's not quite the same person he is when he's in his chair.
I don't know the him outside his chair all that well. I'm not sure if I'd like it. I am sure I don't want to get to know it. But the him in that chair gives me something I need like mothers milk. If there's anything I learned from having no sessions for nearly two weeks, it's how much my day to day stability depends on that maintenance therapy.
I'm not saying it's necessarily healthy. My therapist, being a bottom line sort of guy, thinks it is healthy because I'm not being self destructive the way I was before.
