> My long-term T has been out since last week; her father is in hospice. She will be away until after he dies and the family sits shiva (they are Jewish; shiva is the 7 day intensive mourning period after a death). I feel empathy for her, and all that.

> But, I also feel abandoned and panicky and I''m not coping well. I know it would be helpful to be talking or writing about my feelings or something (I am bipolar, with treatment-resistant bp depression), but mostly I am just shutting down. I feel so brittle. Any coping strategies? Reassurance that I'll make it through this? Thanks for listening.

Welcome to Babble.
I think it is helpful to remember that she will be back. As you think about her, remember that she will not forget about you in the time that she is away. I believe you'll make it through. Let yourself feel any pain or any other feelings that come up. And tell yourself that you will be okay.
