I think realizing they are only human is part of what is hard... But I also think that it is what makes it possible. I mean... Either they would be there on demand in precisely the way we need - in which case we would never want to do without them. Or they would be being purposely withholding - in which case that would make them purposely cruel. Their humanity / fallibility is what makes it possible though, I guess.

At least... It was an important part of the journey for me. I grieved a lot that my therapists weren't more perfect... But I was able to come to accept less than perfection (after not too(ooo) many trantrums) eventually. After realizing that they were trying... And doing the best they could do.

It sounds like one of her family members is going through something so she needs to place her energy over there for a time. At least... That is what sprung to mind for me. I wonder... I wonder if there is a way that you can offer her your support that doesn't necessarily involve your asking for or finding out more information.

Are you creative at all? Some people draw or paint or something... Get some enjoyment from that. You could make her a card or something. To say that your thoughts are with her or something like that... I don't know. Don't know what she is like with gifts... But maybe there could be something that helps the both of you. Even though she might not get it until she returns. It would probably mean something then. And give you a way in to talk about some of this with her on her return.

I hope you get some rested sleep.
