What a great topic.

After working with my T for almost 12 years, she retired. It's been hard and every once in awhile I miss her like crazy to the point of me crying.

I agree therapy and the therapy/patient relationship can be painful. For me that was a good part of the time. I grew so dependent on my T. I loved her, idealized her and put her on a pedestal. That sure didn't help my self esteem especially in the end as I was going through the darkest times in my life. I felt like nothing and felt like she had it all.

Seriously, I regret therapy and I don't hardly ever admit that. I was too attached to her to leave, until one day I had no choice. In December of last year we said goodbye. I miss her but don't miss the process. Every once in awhile I cry because I miss her so much, today was one of those days. She came to mean more to me than anyone besides my kids. A love I longed for in real life that could never be found.

I don't have any suggestions to make therapy less painful. I suffered my share.
