i miss my T

Posted by sunnydays on June 29, 2006, at 20:56:32

I feel so needy and pathetic. I just miss my therapist so much. But only a little over a week until he's back. I just feel so lonely. And I miss my safe place. I mean, I'm physically safe plenty of places, but I miss that emotional safeness and the 'emotional holding' if that makes any sense. Why am I so pathetic?? Oh, I miss him.

oh sunnydays, you're not pathetic. I think we've all felt that way many times. I do all the time. My next appointment is a little over a week away too (next Friday) and it seems impossibly far away, but we'll both make it. You're not alone though. {{{{sunnydays}}}}

I always start counting down around this point. Ok, in two days it'll only be a week before I see him. I often go a week between therapy appointments. I can make a week.

Stuff like that. I think I'm trying to fool myself.

I'm sorry. I know what it means to miss your therapist.

Thank you Dinah and wishingstar. I'm doing a little better today (I tend to do better in the daytime). But I really miss him. Someone was saying in another thread that they want to know what their T looks like between sessions. I can't remember what he looks like (of course, that may be because I don't look at him that much in sessions...) I just have a vague picture in my head, kind of a shadowy outline. And I can remember his eyes, which is really the only important part, I think. But I wish the rest of his face wasn't so vague in my mind. I can't wait to see him.

You're doing great, sunnydays.

Maybe next time, you could ask to take a few photos of your T before he goes. I did that with my T, because I couldn't remember him at all over vacations--esp, the first few years. It was as if he didn't exist--not quite, but in some ways almost worse than that, too.

The photos helped. I still have them, and like to look at them once in a while. His vacation is coming up soon (August)-- I'm not quite sure how bad it's going to be-- but July 4th is when usually I start to feel it.
