>>> I expressed a wish for forever therapy and his response was, "but you are the one saying this can't go on forever. So???" Yeah- full of contradictions, that's me. <<<

Me too! You are in good company in that regard.

We could go on forever about how different the therapeutic relationship is compared to real life. But one particular aspect that I know I'm guilty of ... is too much thinking ... trying to figure it out. I'm especially consumed with trying to understand or figure out what she is thinking/feeling/etc (not all the time - my need in this regard goes up and down).

It's ok to need him in your life. And it's ok to want and get forever therapy. I grew up with no parental support/attention. I'm ok with going to see her for as long as I can afford to, as long as I feel I need her in my life, and as long as I don't get mad as hell and quit one day (which we know happens for me every other few months - - - at least the wanting part).
