This is so very painful! I wish I knew something useful to say, but I don't really. All I can say is that this type of premature termination of therapy is so hard, and so many Ts don't seem to get it. Your T will get an earful from her clients in the next couple of months, I'm sure. Which doesn't really help you.
One thing I will say is that you might want to consider having another T at least for the transition. Maybe if you don't try to think of it as replacing your current T, but just someone that you can talk to about how rotten it feels when your T is no longer available for you, it might seem more doable. From my own experience I would say that right when you're being torn away from a T that you are attached to is not a great time to try to find another T. When I went through it, no one I talked to was good enough. I was mad at all of them for not being my T. But it did help to work with someone for a while, until I got to a place where I could reasonable consider starting up another real therapeutic relationship.
