Hi Alexandra, Im so sorry for not responding right away. I hadnt checked the board in a little while and just signed on and saw your message. Thank you so much.

I totally get that when your therapist tells you things that seem to shake up the boundaries a little and then it gets weird. Like when you said your therapist told you about his wifes pregnancy. But you are right in that his leave was going to affect you. Thats what I kept saying to myself a few weeks agoI tried being mindful in the moment (Im not always great at that!) and just say if she needs to take a leave she will tell me when it is time.

As it turned out we addressed it in the next session and she told me she was glad about the mindfulness practice that she felt conflicted about whether to let me keep doing the right thing or to ease my mind by telling me what she was dealing with was not life threatening. Which in itself told me she was ok. But Im slowly getting how to handle these things, I think. Relationships with anyone are always hard but the therapy relationship can be especially weird! I could go on and on about that!

Thank you for your support and happy holidays!
