My T says just about everything is a variant of and comes from attachment disorders. I don't trust many people either (used to trust no one). So, I think you are in good company.

I agree with Dinah, it would seem to me to be impossible to form a trusting, stable relationship in a construct that is definately going to end. However, if you think what your therapist says rings true, it may be a good springboard for you to begin your work.

I've been with my T for eight years now. I would say that I pretty much trust him above everyone else. But I gotta tell you. It took a conscious decision on my part to do so. When everything in me said to bolt, run, attack, evade I would still show up at his office and talk it out. It did not come naturally. The hard work was mine to do.

Is there an opportunity for you to develop a stable long term relationship with a therapist or other professional? In my opinion, that is what it's going to take.

Seldom.
