Just reading through these posts really emphasize the range of emotions we 'think' that therapists feel for us. I say we think because we can never know. As far as 'love', please save me from that because I have been loved by a therapist and am still paying the price. 'Cared for', now that's appropriate- I too have my shrink's home number, and I know he is available 24/7 for me (and I'm sure for his other patients) and if I miss an appt. he'll do everything to track me down. I also know there is a wide spectrum out there where some pdocs or therps have you call a central number and they will call you back at a time reflecting the severity of your call. I honestly feel that the good therapist does care for the welfare of their client, but love- either that's a transference issue by the client or countertransference by the therp- and unethical if acted on. Disclaimer: These are *entirely* my thoughts, taken from personal experience of seeing over a dozen therps/pdocs. take care all- judy
