Hi Dinah,

I have been following this thread, but everyone has said all I can think of. I just have a question.
Is their anyone in your life like a girlfriend that excepts your emotional self? Is your T the only one who you trust with this part of yourself?
I believe everyone needs someone for the emotional stuff, alot of times it is a spouse, (mine used to be there for me emotionally) but slowy I am replacing him with some new friendships that are starting to feel more real and where I could start to trust with some of my emotional stuff. Do you have an old friend or anything that excepts you for who you really are?

If you don't have anyone, then I can see you why you need your T so much and that is okay in my book. For me I know I can't have my T forever, so it is motivating me to make some new relationships that might be able to provide me with the support I feel with my T. It is so hard at my age to do this but I am trying.

The other day at the gym this girl my age I have been talking to about parenting and stuff for maybe the last 6 mo., gave me a hug for good luck for my concert. It felt so good and it really touched me that she would offer one. I still get hugs from my kids, but this is different. Can I get a hug from my T? No! Even if I found out I was dying from cancer and had a month to live, crying my eyes out in his office, would he do it? Probably not. Even if we would, he isn't going to be around forever, heck I could lose him tonight, you never know, so I feel it is important to create some supporting relationships during therapy with other people. It is a good things all around.
