Oh, now that I've read through all the new entries on this board, I realize that you are not sure whether or not the intensity of your tranference means that another disaster is going to occur. It sounds like you really would like it to go away, as if it's something bad.

Tranference is hard to deal with anyway, but if you've had a horrible experience where you have been rejected for having it, it's much harder. From what I have learned, analysts think that having a strong tranference correlates with having a good outcome to therapy. They feel uneasy about someone's prognosis when they are detached and unable to form a powerful loving, dependent tranference, which will eventually include all the other feelings, like envy, rage, desire, disappointment, etc. It's just astonishing to me how primitive and powerful all these feelings are- it's not what any of us do in daily life!

After 5 months of analysis, I have realized that all these wild tranference feelings, and our working with them together AT EXCRUCIATING LENGTH is the main thing which has been helping me feel better. Does this seem really off-base to you?
