It was I who brought up termination last fall, at which time he thought it was a little premature, but for the past few months he's agreed that it's time.

I guess I can't get around the pain, not with anger, not with any kind of "avoidance" (that term sounds like I'm jumping out of the way of a truck). I don't want to face this. He offered me understanding and compassion that I get no where else in my life, not from friends or husband.

Is the role that a therapist plays one that cannot be duplicated? Is compassionate caring something one only gets from a therapist? Is it just me or does that really STINK?

He's away right now so I've got another week or so before I see him. I am often angry after sessions but I tend to get over it pretty quickly. This time my feelings have remained as acute as they were when I saw him last.

The worse part is I am again feeling very ugly, and can't imagine that he would care about me at all, can't imagine that he he would have any wish but to see me leave asap.

I will talk with him about all of this. I just wish I didn't feel so damn stupid.
