I've experienced the sudden loss of intense emotions before. I didn't understand how this could happen and struggled against it for a year. In my case the struggling was useless and made the situation even worse.

However I suggest that in your situation something else should probably be considered - if it hasn't already, that is. If it has, I apologize for what follows.

Does your therapist know about this transference issue? This is very significant. I suggest (only a suggestion) that if you can't confide in her enough to tell her about the transference, she may not be able to help you with the sudden changes in your emotions either.

She should be told everything in order to help her help you. If the transference issue results in a transfer to another therapist, then so be it. The next therapist can then work on the sudden changes in emotion.

Psychotherapists take transference very seriously. They know how much this can adversely affect the mental well-being of their patients.

Based on what you've posted, then, you need help with two immediate problems: transference and loss.

Please keep in mind that I'm not a psychologist and that these are suggestions only. I'm basing all of this on my own experiences and what I've read, and as such could easily be wrong about everything.

I hope this helps and I'm sorry if I overstepped myself. This really is serious stuff.

Good luck with it,
Reggie BoStar
