It really does sound as though you have gotten a lot of what you hoped for out of your therapy. Still, the termination phase is (naturally) making you feel rejected and angry, which makes me think you should NOT terminate quickly. People can take years to terminate successfully, and it's probably the toughest part of treatment. I'm not near that yet- dread it, too!- but my T. has said that he likes to terminate slowly, and also welcomes people to come back whenever they feel they need to. He said in the beginning that complete termination may be too idealistic a goal for many people, who do much better with some contact indefinitely.

Would this be something worth discussing with your T.? I'm guessing that you'll need a long time to work through the anger leaving is causing you, but it is awfully important, as you want to preserve, and increase, all the gains you've made.
