Oh Daisy, that isnt stupid at all. And neither are you for feeling that way.

I have certainly felt what you are feeling before. I have a very time when my Ts go away. Once Anne went away for 2 weeks and I counted the days and sometimes even hours until she got back.

I think it's just a hard concept for someone to understand who hasnt experienced attachment like that, or especially those who have never even been in individual therapy. Therapy and the therapeutic relationship can bring out feelings like no other, at least for me. But just because they dont understand or havent been there doesnt mean youre crazy. I'd be at least one of them would develop the same kind of attachment we're talking about if put in with the right individual therapist. And I agree with annierose, I bet the group leader didnt think what you were saying was crazy.

I think that's a great idea about giving him the little charm to hold on to. A great way to feel close to him while he's gone. Next time my T is gone, I'm going to try to ask her to do that myself.

Hang in there. I wish I could make him come back sooner, but for now, just know that youre not crazy. You can always come talk about it here.. we understand. :)
