>Did you understand or relate when I said to her, "It's a feeling not duplicated elsewhere in my life."

I think that when I miss my therapist is it like when I was a very little girl, and I had been put to bed and I would look out my window and into the window of the main part of the house. I could (barely) see the couch where my mother sat. I did this both when she was home and when she wasn't home. I think that the ache is the same. We talk about that window a lot in therapy. My parents just sold their house, and had marketing literature printed up, including a floorplan. I brought it into therapy so that he could see my house and how it was arranged. I was able to show him my window.

I think that the feeling is different for when the people currently in my life are away. In general, I take care of them. The fact that my therapist takes care of me (and it is not reciprocal) parallels only the parent/child relationship from when I was little. My parents are now becoming elderly, so even they don't take care of me like they have in the past.

But certainly, missing my children is different.
