It can be so helpful to have a nice last session like you did just before your therapist goes on vacation. I found that I could draw on memories of my session to comfort me during his vacation.

The picture is wonderful, and the writing on the back is even more wonderful. Allow yourself to need and use his talisman for comfort. Clearly, he cares about YOU.

You want him to take care of himself (because you care about him, and because you want him to be able to take care of you). That is what this vacation is all about. He is taking care of himself.

He will come back, he is not leaving - he is going on a vacation, and vacations are temporary. Allow yourself certain things while he is gone that you might not want to do on a longterm basis (i.e. I took Ativan fairly regularly at night and even twice during the day - when he is here I try not to take it at all). Realize that this is a temporary situation, so think up some temporary solutions to help you through.

He will come back. And we are still here.
