> We never really "know" anyone. We only see a subset of each person who we see. With therapists, we only see their professional side. Does knowing whether he puts his socks in the hamper or on the floor mean that you can trust him more or less than if you know that he is engaged with you every time you see him?

The thing is, while he's almost always engaged with me when I see him, I feel dependent on him almost all the time, whether I'm with him or not. Actually, I feel more dependent when I'm not with him.

I know it shouldn't make a difference, but for example, I wouldn't leave my son with a babysitter who does a great job when she's watching him but does drugs when she's not, you know?

> What's going on?

I don't know. I miss him and I'm mad that I miss him when it's only going to be a week. :(

Thanks for being around this afternoon, (((falls))).
