I don't think the caring is turned off. She always cares, even when she's not physically present. Contact with therapists outside the office always needs to be initiated by us, but that doesn't mean they don't care.

I know that she doesn't have all the qualities and training you need in a therapist, and I'm glad you've found someone who does. But I remember your saying how much you've gotten from therapy. How much better you are at self regulation. Being consistently, even stubbornly, cared about helps us change. I know it's not all you need, but I'm glad you can appreciate that part of what she's done.

I'm trying to forget stuff with my therapist until tomorrow. I must have dreamed about him, because this morning I woke up and dialed his number to "take back" everything I'd said. Only to not leave a message because I woke up enough to remember I actually hadn't told him any of those things, at least not yet.
