You seem to have closed the posting window without submitting a post. In case you did that by mistake, here's what was in your message box:

You bring up interesting points! I have thought these same things!

I guess all I can say is this...because I had crappy parents, abusive caregivers, lots and lots of abuse from people I trusted when I was a child, I have "attachment" issues. I am independent with a capital I. I don't need anyone or anything thank you very much. I can do it all by myself...afterall I raised myself!

My T. says this kind of independence is not healthy, not whole, not what life is about. Life is about relationships, she says. What does this mean? I have no idea. ha ha

But the picture she is painting for me, believe it or not (I am having a hard time believing it) is that she and I will be in relationship for the rest of our lives. Now, perhaps that is because my particular abuse, my particular issues are that I never had anyone give a shit about me, nobody I could count on, and this is what I need in therapy.

Another joe blow could come along and have detachment issues, I suppose, and my t. might treat him/her differently...???....

It sure is hard to listen to her, to believe her when she says she will be here as long as I need and I can call whenever I want....esp since I havce never had anyone care about me before.
If you just decided not to submit anything, that's fine, of course, and you can just ignore this.
