Hi pinkeye,

I'm assuming that you meant to be helpful here. I just want to point out that personally I don't see my relationship with my therapist as a pseudo relationship at all. It's a unique one, for sure. And it certainly has limits. But it's totally real. I'm a real person, she's a real person, and we really talk about our real thoughts about real things. She may have different rules for me than she does with friends, family, etc., but that doesn't mean our relationship is in any sense fake or pseudo.

Also, personally, I have no problem with the idea of someone staying in therapy for as long as they find it helpful. For some people that's 2 months, and for others it's their whole life. Trying to say that some particular time period is the right time to cut down, just because of the amount of time that has passed, seems very simplistic to me.

I'm afraid that Dinah might feel put down by the way you phrased those things. So I just want to support Dinah and say that I have great confidence that she's making appropriate choices for her, and I see every evidence that her relationship with her T is very real. And from having read your posts in the past, my guess is that you didn't meant those things to come out the way they (may have) sounded.
