My p-doc used to say the point of therapy is to end. I am having difficulty ending and his age means we will end sooner rather than later (he is 72 and in good health). We have had this caring conversation over and over during the years I've been seeing him. He cares for me differently he says, than I care for him. I care for him the way a child cares for a parent. But he is not my parent and can not ever be my parent, because I am not a child. He says he is a caregiver by nature and this relationship allows in to care for me in a structured, constructive, but institutionally bounded way.
