This is what keeps me from taking therapy breaks: (and it's not a great theraputic reason) ---

If you decided to take a break from therapy, all your wonderful appointment times that you finally got just the way you want them so that they fit into your life may not be there when you decide to return. That scares the heck out of me.

I think in order to lessen the pain of the relationship, we need to keep talking and talking about it. After a while, it does get repetitive and "boring" - that is for sure.

Bent - I would have similar feelings -- feeling bad to talk about "my stuff" when clearly she is dealing with important stuff of her own. I remind myself that even when I am dealing with "my stuff" while at my job, it is often helpful to help others and distract myself from my internal angst. She is okay with it. But you can acknowledge her pain and tell her, "I'm sorry for the loss you have experienced. I'm sad for you." --- or whatever words come to your mind. You can even write her a note or mail a sympathy card.

You are not alone in feeling this way. Don't be hard on yourself. (((((((((bent))))))))))
