Thanks Alexandra... I know what you mean about realizing that they are human. It's interesting though because I saw another therapist before her for a few years, and I practically worshipped her. I thought she was perfect. Looking back, I can see that it was probably not such a healthy relationship for me, a little too loose with boundaries, maybe a tad unprofessional. Of course I liked it all at the time... but my therapist now is different. She's professional and pretty rigid with boundaries without being stuffy. She's appropriate. She's made mistakes, though never intentionally, but it's shown me that she's human... and I like that. I think she's great and I love her, but I don't "worship" her like I did the other one.

It's just that this "family emergency" is new to me. To be honest, I don't even mind missing the session (or sessions). I just want her and her family to be ok. Selfishly, I don't want this to affect my treatment, of course. And I also wonder if she will tell me after the fact. I doubt it, but I can't help but be curious about what's going on.

I had trouble sleeping last night and ended up sending her an email, not about me though. I told her not to respond, but said I wanted her to know that I was thinking about her, and that I hoped everything was ok, etc. I didn't tell her how I was feeling, didn't want to make it about me since she is going through her own stuff. However, she did respond this morning, thanking me for my good wishes and said that the best thing I could do for her was to have as good a life as possible, etc. (For some reason, that comment made me feel like someone died; which my gut already thinks. She never said anything like that before, sounds like someone's life was cut short.)

I don't know...
