I'm sorry it's so tough. Is it possible your T wanted to live in a different city, for professional or family reasons, and this disaster was the excuse to start over somewhere new for him?
I'm sure it's very hard to leave clients, especially one so dedicated and close as you are to him. I know it hurts that he CAN leave so suddenly, without warning. I'm sorry life is not more stable than that. It's scary to think that solid supports can suddenly disappear. But I continue to believe that you are a strong wonderful person, and that you WILL do well without him being in the same city!
Like Orchid mentioned, maybe this will be a blessing in disguise? I know you want forever therapy, but it DID sort of sound (maybe?) like you were outgrowing the expertise of your T? Sometimes like piano students get too good for a certain teacher? Maybe it will be good to start over with a new T, a new point of view?
I'm sorry if that all sounded horrible, and if you don't want to do that. But I DO have confidence that you will prevail. :)
