> Hi- Honestly i can't imagine being in your situation as i am not terminating treatment, but i will say just reading your predicament made me cry. It must be so painful to say goodbye to somebody you open your heart to and develop such a deep relationship with. I cant imagine what you might be feeling, but i am with you in understanding that this is a huge change that will probably be difficult to deal with.

**That's similar to what I used to say to people on here until last year. ;)

Personally, i would try to hold on to all the good you felt while you were working with her, and remember that as what she had meant to you.

**That's what she kept telling me, but I have a very difficult time sitting with "the good" and experiencing it for what it is, without experiencing the extreme feelings associated with the loss.

Everyine has to move on, and change is inevitable, but that doesnt mean its not painful. Try to do what best makes you content and realize that you are closing one chapter of your life and beginning another. Best of luck. I hope this helps a little.

**I have an extreme difficulty dealing with change, and that was something I was working on with my T, but, obviously, we didn't even get close to finishing. So, I think the multitude of related changes happening at once (graduation, finishing school, entering the "real world", leaving T-- without whom, I know I would not have survived 6 years of school, etc.) is what is making this even more difficult... though the situation with my T is certainly the most significant, because I told her, and I strongly believe, that I could handle everything else a lot better if I wasn't also losing her.
