you know, for me, it comes and goes. i can go weeks and months feeling fairly stable and doing the work of therapy each week. then sometimes out of nowhere, i kind of lose it. i have always told my therapist that he represents for me a firm metal pole firmly planted in the ground that doesn't move. i need that, because sometimes my life seems to spin out of control. anyway, just yesterday i left a message on his pager because i had a dream that upset me and just needed his reassurance. he returned my call after a few hours between appointments and it was what i needed to get me through until my next appointment tomorrow, where i can be there and lose it in the safe environment of the office.

i think there has to be some of that dependence on your therapist because you have to trust them with your stuff that you don't tell anybody else. for me it can feel more dependent than other times, but i don't think my therapist sees it that way but as being entrusted with my care. usually the times when i feel like i am the most of a "bother" are times when it's good that i trusted him with more information.

for what it's worth.

take care.
