I think you are actually quite strong. Forming an attachment like that is very healthy. And although you planned your tapering, I think it certainly has the potential to sneak up on you and bite you on the butt when you actually begin implementing it. I know for me, even though intellectually and "on paper" I would feel good about progress and about the tapering, when it actually started happening, I'm sure it would remind me of the big void that came from an emotionally neglectful childhood. And being reminded of that still can hurt. Especially durig scary times.

I certainly don't think it's a sign that you aren't actually ready or that you are weak. I think it's part of the end stage of therapy process.

And by the way, I'm glad your T leaves the door open for coming back whenever needed. I absolutely agree with that approach. Therapy doesn't need to be continuous. I think it's an effective tool to have at our disposal.

Take care,
