The only thing that has allowed me to even marginally survive through vacations is that I know very strongly (intellectually) that he DESERVES a vacation. And that he NEEDS a vacation. This is the one time when his needs come before mine. He puts my needs first all the rest of the time, so when he's on vacation I try my very hardest NOT to fall apart - because to me if I fall apart I am saying that he can NEVER put his needs first, and I don't think that is a fair thing to say.

In the past, I have scheduled sessions with (present or past) group leaders. Or even with other professionals who "help" me (pdoc, GP, accountant, lawyer). This makes me feel more "taken care of", so I can survive not having my therapist take care of me better.

And, of course, Post early and often to Babble - we will try to fill the gap for you.
