> I second that. I feel like I'm growing up with my children too. When I go about my day and stumble into thoughts about my therapist, it makes me feel like someone out there cares about me on such an intimate level. I feel warm and fuzzy about it. And understood.
>
> I asked my daughter recently (she's 12) if she thought about me at school and how did that make her feel. She echoed my feelings about my T. Then I reflected back to my childhood. I can't know for sure since I can't remember, but even now, I don't feel warm and fuzzy when I think about my parents. I don't feel much of anything. I guess there's the problem.

I'm the same way when I think about my parents. Especially, my mom. And sometimes I wonder if my feelings toward my alcoholic, mostly absent dad are a bit skewed because he's gone, I miss him, and I feel guilty having any negative feelings toward him.

When I think about how my son feels when I leave him, it just kills me. On all levels. I feel terrible for him - I feel his pain and it's so real for me. But I also feel terrible for leaving him. I don't think there's any way my T feels as torn when I leave. I know he cares, I just can't imagine he can be *that* emotionally invested in any client.


> Daisy is right. Attachment, attachment, attachment.

Ouch, ouch, ouch.


> I hope you enjoy your vacation. Are you going as a family somewhere? My T's first summer vacation is 12 days (over July 4th week). That works out great for me since I'll be pretty distracted. My son and I are taking my daughter to summer camp, a 4 1/2 hour drive away. I decided to make a little vacation out of it since my husband is using his vacation days for August. It's in the northern part of my state and I have lots of friends with summer homes to visit.

We're going to Californa for the first week, coming home for a few days, and then going to Orlando for a long weekend. :)

I hope you're having a great weekend!


> I like your image of going to therapy in pj's. Back to the comfty, cozy feelings.

I've found that lately, even when I'm talking about very uncomfortable things and feelings, I'm still comfy in my T's office. So comfy I don't want to leave and can't stand not being there. :(
