> I don't want to sound harsh or insensitive here, but based on what I have read (and assuming you have not sent it yet), I don't think you should send it. As hard as it is, it seems pretty clear that your therapist is unwilling to continue a relationship. That is unfortunate but sometimes life throws a curve ball. I think if you send her the e-mail and you don't get a response - or even worse, get an e-mail that is curt and not particularly understanding, then you will feel even worse. And you seem to say it the best - "Maybe if she sees how hard I've been trying with this, she'll agree that some of the reasons why she said she wouldn't see me aren't a problem anymore. False hope." Unfortunately it does seem like a false hope. If she was willing to see you, I don't think she would have terminated and told you to see someone else.

**Sorry, but no. It's not that she doesn't want to continue a relationship-- she told me to find another T because thinks that I need a different kind of therapy. The biggest reason, though, is that I saw her at my college's counseling center, and I graduated this past May. Hypothetically, if I still had another year, or semester, or whatever left, I would still be seeing her.

I actually did send her a different email on Monday, asking her if we could talk about this through email. I also told her that I had a longer email for her, but that I would keep this one brief. She replied today saying that she will be away through Sunday, but she'll be back at the college on Monday, so to send her an email and she'll get back to me.

Thank you, though-- I really do appreciate your thoughts on this.
