My therapist sometimes accuses me of wanting guarantees of that. And he is frustrated because he says he can't give it. But he has given my assurances that he won't stop therapy just because he thinks it has gone on long enough. And he jokes about retiring and having me as his last client or getting so old that he'll be falling asleep and jabbering nonsense and I won't even be able to tell he's changed. Those are just jokes though. I'm sure he expects that I will outgrow the dependence.

But I'm not in pain over it yet. And perhaps I never will be. Perhaps I'll predecease him before his retirement, or perhaps I'll outgrow the dependence. Any number of things could happen.

But I guess I do anticipate that I'll be his client until he retires or moves. And he's pretty much said that's okay. I think.
