I always remembered I wrote that post, but I didn't remember how important it was to me until I reread it. It really does accurately depict our relationship.

I suspect he'll forget all about me as soon as I left the room. But for a moment I touched him, and that felt good.

There were other good moments in the session too. I was trying to point out that I knew what was going on was difficult for him, while also pointing out that I realized there was a huge discrepancy in how invested we each were. Because he was the only therapist but I was one of many clients. Like a teacher with many students. And he said that he might have many clients but he didn't have many mes. When I smiled because I wasn't quite sure how he meant that, he said that he didn't have many clients he'd seen for nine years, and neither did most teachers. Mentors maybe, but not teachers. That was kind of nice too. I can't remember most of the session, but I don't think he was angry with me.
