Thank you, mystickangaroo. but I feel like my therapist doesn't know the depth of what I feel for him and how dependent I am. We have only *briefly talked about it a few times. He has *never used the word transference. In fact, he never uses psychoanalytic/technical terms with me at all. I wonder if he is thinking in these specific categories or not. I just worry that we are on completely different pages. He doesn't know what is really going on inside because I hide it from him, even concsciously falling into a role in session in which he is only privy to half of what is in my head.

But yes, he is maintaining a sense of connection, and for that I am sooooo grateful. He does care, I think. Maybe he doesn't want to use these *technical words, because they take away from the reality that is occuring. But I want to latch on to something that I can conceptualize and analyze and research and figure out...

it is really hard. and lonely
