I'm reminded of an assignment when I was in grad school. A classmate and I had to role-play a "boundary crossing", and I had to play the therapist. I was embarrassed about how strong my reaction was to the boundary crossing enacted, which wasn't any kind of sexual or love toward the therapist. But still, I was really uncomfortable, and it showed in my response. What this taught me was that *I* have issues which could affect the client. They didn't seem like that big of a deal, really. But however small (or not), it was enough to "throw me off my game" for a moment. And I don't think therapists are overly comfortable acknowledging that and looking at how that might be perceived by the client.

Thinking of you, Daisy, and hoping you are finding some relief.
