We never did play the game. Instead we talked about what it meant to our therapeutic relationship that I felt the need for external props to make up for something intrinsically lacking. And we managed to deal with the lack without the games. He was willing, and I still have it around somewhere.

The funny thing was that since I was in totally rational mode, I was in favor of his leaving for that long, so that I could as he used to put it "try my wings". I reminded him how he used to "reframe things" in a terribly self serving way, and he laughed and agreed that therapists can do that at times. I figured it would be all to the good if I did just fine without him, since without therapy I could quit work.

Then I get home and there's all this talk about gustav, and I remembered that I always felt at some level that I caused Katrina by saying maybe I didn't need therapy anymore, so now I'm afraid I'll cause Gustav to come this way. Not at my logical level, but at the magical thinking level.

So I called him and took it all back formally, and now am worried it won't be enough. :(
