Doing OK without my T so far.

Posted by LadyBug on July 5, 2007, at 14:19:30

Today marks the first week of four weeks that my T is gone. I've done alright so far. Sure I think of her all the time, but I haven't had a crying spell where I've wanted to see or talk to her. Maybe I see that I CAN manage without her. I think about how I'd like to terminate and just can't bare the thoughts of saying goodbye to her, ever! Maybe it would be easier to just decide between appointments to never go back one time and call it good. This is called bolting, not termination.
She sent me a nice note in the mail the other day and I carry it with me all the time. It sits on my night stand when I go to bed, then I bring it to work with me. She signed it Love, ******. Does she love me? I think so even though I put her through a lot sometimes. My life has just been such a roller coaster and she gets to listen to my same old sob story every week, just more of everything that happens in between.
I am emotionally drained right now. Making some very huge changes in my life. I'm sad that she's gone during this time, but I WILL survive, I have to.
I think I could hang out at camp comfort till the end of July. Right now, I need it to be cool as it's over 100 degrees where I live and that's HOT! Maybe in the mountains somewhere?
I have 3 more weeks to go, but I'm going to be fine! (Positive thinking!) I have such separation anxiety it's hard.

Hi LadyBug-
That was so sweet of your T to send you a note. She sounds like a wonderful lady. When my ex-T had to go out of town, etc. the separation was really hard for me(Things have since fallen apart..see "Sudden Termination" thread for the boring details).
Four weeks is a long time. Keep holding onto that letter, and I'm willing to hazard a guess that she does love you. You are very fortunate to have her.

I'm so proud of you, LadyBug, for all the changes you've made and how you're handling the separation from your T. Way to go, Girlfriend!

I just got a voice mail from her as she was at the airport waiting for her flight to go out the country. She's been out of town all this week and today she is leaving the country for 3 weeks.
I was surprised to hear from her because she mailed me the note I figured that was my something to hold on to while she's gone. Now I have a voice mail to go along with it. I feel good inside, except that I'm sleep deprived and ready to fall asleep on the job!

You've got a good T- she knows that you're trying and she's giving you some extra "vitamins" to tide you over until she gets back. It must feel warm and fuzzy to have two messages from her.

I'll see you at camp comfort- I think it's a party over there right now, judging from Jammer's thread.

take good care, and so what if you have a crying spell? You're only human, after all!
