therapist uses the L word

Posted by lucy stone on July 14, 2004, at 13:15:49

I have had a rough couple of days in my analysis. I have an ongoing fantasy that I often try to play out in real life, especially the part of my real life that includes my analyst. I made another attempt at it yesterday and it blew up in my face like it always does. I might post about this issue if I decide I want to share. Anyway, part of the fantasy revolves around being in distress and getting comforted. It feeds a hunger in me that we explore in great lengths. He said today that this issue interferes in my ability to receive and give love. After he said that I asked him if he loved me, and he replied "yes, I think I do." I said that I loved him, but I have said that several times before. I believe that he has feelings for me, and that those feelings might be described as love. He and I are not talking about sexual love, or familial love, of friend-type love, but the love that therapists and patients can feel for each other. I know that knowledge is important to me but I'm not sure exactly why or how at this point. I am glad I know, though.
