I'm glad your T at least acknowledged your feelings about therapy. From the entire history you have shared on here, I keep thinking that perhaps your T's strong suit is NOT this kind of therapy and this kind of therapy relationship. You mentioend that she is not used to working with long-term clients. I think that she has been finding her way with you, on how to work with long term clients. And she has made mistakes. I think she's tried different ways of being, from being close to backing off. She seems like she has been struggling to do what's "right", and perhaps it's been a learning process for her. Unfortunately, this learning process seems to have been very confusing and to really hurt you.

I think it's very likely she will never ever forget you and the relationship you shared. I would suspect she learned as much from you as you did from her. That kind of experience is very important to a T. At least from my point of view...I've had clietns I learned a great deal from, and they have a special place in my "T heart" among all of my clients, past and present.

I am so glad you are still talking to folks about this and processing your feelings. And I'm glad you are continuing to explore IP.
