Unfortunately, we'll never know what our T's or pdocs really think about us. I mean you never got the chance to ask really and hear an answer (and neither did I). If you were still having sessions with her, I would've recommended you told her these feelings. I think it's also important to trust our instincts in evaluating how a person feels about us and if possible ask them as well and compare it to their response, because no one is a better judge of a situation than yourself. And that's what you did, you used your instincts and reality both to weigh the situation. Nevertheless, I think she probably did care about you as a person, granted she has other patients, she probably cares about each one of them, too.

I think times like this signal how rewarding a relationship with someone we don't pay for would be. Although a pdoc is healing and rewarding, it's much different than a real friendship not built out of obligation.
