It is very difficult. What is hard about it is the "feelings" you get in touch with. If you are anything like me, the therapist became a mother figure. And not just a mother 'figure' but a real mother. Oh, I never saw my therapist outside of the sessions but she became a family member. So it is a real relationship. Not some flimsy doctor-patient thing with no feeling. I feel your pain and I am not kidding. I had a session today and was crying and sobbing. I feel awful inside. Like a death. It is God awful. I wouldn't wish it on anyone. Please stay in touch. Friesandcoke

> I had a hard session today. It's not anything she's doing. It's being forced to think about trying to navigate my world without her. I cried and then sat, unable to speak. She suggested at first that I try to write about it (we did this a lot in the early years) and then thought maybe I should put it on a shelf for a while, since I am still recovering from my surgery.
> It's hard to know how to do this. Part of me knows it's going to take all the time I can throw at it to live through her leaving me.
> This really, really sucks.
