Only eleven years? :-O

I'm only half joking. With what's going on with me right now, I sort of think it is possible to get too attached to a therapist. I want to move except for him. I'm driving four hours and spending $45 in gas to see him, even though he sort of deserted me by living so far away.

Yet...

It is nice that he seems as committed as I am to keeping the relationship going. It is nice that he at least for a minute believed that the relationship was as important to him as it was to me. It was nice (?!!!) that when he told me that he was taking a four week assignment that he simultaneously tried to make sure he had my attention to see that I heard that he was still able to see me once a week, and we could have double sessions that once, and phone sessions or email sessions. And that he put his arm around me and held tight as I had strong hysterics.

I don't know. Maybe those are all good reasons why it is possible for a therapist to be too important to us. But it doesn't really feel that way. Ok, it does, but that's not all it feels.

That's as clear as mud, isn't it?

(I've never seen you make a pointless post. And this one in particular has a lot of importance.)
