Thanks Poet. It really helps to know that there are people that know how to just hold and not hurt. I feel your holding all the way up here.

It is such a primal thing -- this wanting and needing of our moms. It isn't like it would change what happened, but maybe it would help me to forgive myself if she did? I don't know.

I've been thinking about this idea of physical nurturing. I don't think it really would matter if my therapist would hug or hold me because that isn't what the yearning is really for. It might satiate it for a while, but I suspect it would come roaring back even louder to make sure I pay attention to what this is really about.

One of my friends had a baby girl this week. I held her at 20 hours old and gently rocked her and cried my eyes out. Everyone thought I was mourning not having a daughter...I think I was mourning my innocence.
