> Yep. Been there, done that. It does get better once you somehow get your needs met. Maybe from your T, maybe internally, maybe from someone else, maybe through some combination of the above. You described all of it beautifully in your post. Could you think about taking that in to your T to help start the discussion? I think this happens often, so I'd be surprised if she wasn't prepared to discuss it.

I do like the idea of bringing something written in to my therapist. I'm just afraid she's going to make me read it out loud :)

> My T is on leave for 6-8 weeks right now due to a family crisis. Surprisingly, I'm doing okay. In the past, I would have completely fallen apart. But today has been 3 weeks since I've seen her and I'm really, really doing okay.

Good for you! I think we do surprise ourselves with our own strength sometimes. I imagine you've worked hard to get to this place.

> You will be okay, too.

Thanks. I hope so :)
