You are going through an extremely tough time. Katrina, losing your home, losing your T, and I think you also mentioned about possibly losing your job.
Please don't try to be too harsh on yourself. Be free to experience whatever you are experiencing. This is almost like your world has been turned upside down, and I am amazed at the way you have been coping with all of it so far. You have done a good job putting up with all the changes to the extent you have done.
Commuting 6 hours to see your therapist is going to be difficult in long run, but maybe you can get a new therapist meanwhile in your town, and also maintain your contact wiht your current T. Maybe you can visit him whenever time permits, and I am sure he will agree to it given the nature of the tragedy. Plus you can have regular therapy wiht some one nearby. So you can have best of both.
Plus anyways, I always thought it might do you good to try a new therapist after 10 years of therapy, so maybe for all you know, this might turn out to be a Blessing in Disguise.
