I think you insist that your t understands your point-of-view - it doesn't sound like you need him to accept it as the "truth" but you want him to understand where you are coming from. I get that.

>>I do wonder about something else though. Isn't this a topic that comes up many times between you? Her belief that you are critical in this situation or that? And your feeling that she misunderstands you?<<

Yes, I addressed this in my reply to GG. I do think it's an on-going issue but I think it speaks more about ME than HER. Sometimes the pink elephant in the room is really the pink elephant in the room (and it's me).

In your dreams, it sounds like you are working out some "what if" scenarios. If he did have cancer and needed to leave his practice, he would still care about you. He does hold you in mind as much as you do not believe it to be true. But the balance of the relationship is not the same. Our therapist matter so much to our emotional well being. We matter to them in a different way. They cannot rely on us for any type of emotional support. But as a teacher cares for his/her students, a therapist cares for the people they work with.

Thank you for your continued support. I value the insights you have given me.
