> Most people are trying to trust their therapist not to abandon them. And I understand that. But abandonment is so familiar to me it feels almost comfortable.

maybe... it seems so inevitable that you just feel numb?

> But my issue is more trusting him enough to let him care a tiny bit. That is really hard for me to do.
> Why? Why do most people long for caring, and I fear it more than anything else?
> I mean I'm okay with caring about people. I really do care about my husband, my son, some of the people I work with, even my therapist. But I'm not okay with any of those people caring about me :-(

i'm not sure... maybe if they care about you... then it might be harder to feel detached / numb. then they might have more power to hurt you. especially if / when they leave.

> Except for Babblers. That's strange but I can take the care I get here and it even makes me feel better. Maybe because I know that you can all ignore me anytime you want, you don't have to look at me.

yeah. and maybe... its because you can ignore us if you want to too.

> I don't know.

me neither...
