I asked for a formal separation.

On an unrelated note.

I asked my therapist for a therapy break until he felt better. I was very clear that I wasn't terminating, that I wasn't going to see anyone else, that I didn't blame him or take it personally, that I wasn't calling him a bad therapist, that I cared very much about him.

But that when he isn't there in spirit when he is there in body, I get frantic. And that it hurts worse than not seeing him at all. And that I knew he was trying his best, but he was just too tired and stressed to give me what I needed.

I told him that when he felt better I wanted him to call me, and we could resume therapy.

He hasn't said yes yet. He says that he isn't ready to give up. He hasn't really given me any options for hurting less when he can't be there. But he offered a fifty percent cost rebate when he was only there in body.

We're going to talk more about it next week.
