I second what Falls said.

I also feel your pain and frustration. I am one of five children born in 10 years and I think your therapist is right on target about your willingness to need and not think of it as failure and trust that the other person will fill your needs.

I have recently had a setback that has caused flashbacks and general ickiness. Last week, I asked my therapist to hold me, which she has always been willing to do, but which I won't allow myself to ask for unless I'm desperate. She said, "I was hoping you'd ask. I think you need to be held." I have to tell you -- never, ever have I imagined that she would hope I would ask her to hold me. I thought she just put up with it to humor me.

I think we have a lot in common. I try to remind myself that being strong and dependent aren't mutually exclusive. One doesn't completely cancel out the other.
