I've moved over the original post. I hope that helps. I'm sorry, but I wasn't able to put them in order.

Have you read the book highlighted at the top of this board? "In Session: The Bond Between Women and Their Therapists" by Deborah Lott? I can't believe it's out of print. A lot of people here, including myself, have been greatly helped by it.

I'm not in love with my therapist but I have strong loving feelings of a maternal sort toward him. It *can* hurt. You certainly aren't alone. Not that that makes in any easier or less painful.

I'm sorry to hear about the tragedies that happened when you weren't seeing her. I told my therapist the other day that certainly bad things don't happen every time he's gone, but when bad things happen he's generally gone. I think I find that increases the feelings I have for him. Do you find that?

If you haven't read the book you might want to. Your public library might have it, or be able to do an interlibrary loan on it.
