Re: Transition with Old T not really working for me...

I think your former therapist is stumbling trying to help you with your grieving process while moving forward with her retirement. Over the phone, she keeps reminding you that she is retired, in effect, that she is no longer your therapist. She opened a can of worms in trying to help you and help herself make this transition "comfortable" ... which is impossible.

Sort of like ripping off a band-aide quickly vs. the slow and painful peal.

I think it would help to focus on the new therapist and your life without your former therapist (it is a balancing act that she is unable to figure out)... as painful and difficult as that process it ... I do understand.

As my therapist would say, "It hurts when your 'insert person here' disappoints you. But you are still okay."
