> And it usually has generalised answers. Not answers specific to me. What I really want is the book on "How to make littleone all better". (Dr Bob, your double quotes aren't working).

I laughed so hard, and cried at the same time! I wish we could get all get together and write "How to make littleone all better."

> But with that realisation has come a dropping off in my faith in books. They no longer bring me the comfort they once did. Instead I'll look at one and wonder how disappointing it will be. And I wouldn't mind that so much if I could that comfort from my T instead.

Yes. Getting that comfort from your T does seem to be the ideal situation.

> But I can't. I can't really call him between sessions. And I certainly can't contact him on weekends which is when I need the most comforting. And sometimes it's stuff he's said/done that I need comforting over.

If you really feel you can't call him, can you talk to him about why you need him at weekends? I understand what you mean about needing to be comforted after things he's said and done. Argh!

> I find that reading babble is a comfort. Even when I can't post. But I live over an hour away from my computer. I can't just jump on anytime I like. I used to carry my books with me *everywhere*. They were *always* with me. I could turn to them anytime I wanted.

Gosh, that's hard.

Can you persuade your T to write something down for you that you could read when the going gets tough? Would that help?

> I feel alone without my books.

Sending you big hugs. It's horrible to feel you're losing an area of support. Can you talk to your T about finding an alternative means of support?
