It might be because I've been so darn busy that I need to distance myself from everything else. But I do have a history of having trouble remembering who he is to me when he's gone. Especially in the last year or so. I remember who he is, of course. But I don't remember why I bother to go see him, or viscerally remember who he is emotionally to me.

I daresay there's some ambivalence about whether or not that's a bad thing. There always is with me. On the one hand I like attachment, but on the other hand I mistrust it - particularly this sort of attachment.

It's not that I'm unused to telling myself bad things about my therapist. But this time the intrusive pictures seemed... out of place. I'm not sure if that makes sense.

I'm also not sure that they would achieve their apparent goal. Surely when I'm feeling disconnected isn't a great time to have these distortions thrust upon my mind. If anything, they're more likely to turn my thoughts toward him and mentally refute the ugliness.

So maybe that's the real purpose? Not to make me feel disconnected but to help me feel connected?

Which is just plain weird.
