Hello All! I'm New!!

Posted by JayMac on August 26, 2008, at 15:47:34

Hello All,
I am new to Psycho Babble. For the past month I have thoroughly enjoyed your forum posts! Reading about your lives and all the differing dynamics with your Ts has helped me form a working alliance with my T. Thanks for all the inspiration!

A little more about me: I've been with my current T for close to 3 months now, thus our relationship is pretty new, but pretty intense nevertheless. I had a T of about 2 years previously, but I didn't feel like I had ever gone that "deep" with her. My current T is a psychoanalyst, so by definition, we go deep. This is both scary and sacred. Scary because I have a lot of abandonment issues, and sacred because she does not push me away when I push her away-she lets me be me and still likes me.
I'm currently on vacation, but I desperately miss my T. She said I could call her, but she also implied that I should try to "hold" her inside me until I can see her again (Sept 3). So.....I'm holding her inside me, but I miss having her close to me. A month ago, she went on vacation and I literally cried myself to sleep while she was away. Anyhow, as much as I needed this vacation, I need her too. Some things have happened and I would love her hear her voice and have her relieve my anxiety.

Thanks for reading,
JayMac

Hello and welcome

>So.....I'm holding her inside me, but I miss having her close to me. A month ago, she went on vacation and I literally cried myself to sleep while she was away.

Is it too trite (can you tell me?) to say that when you miss someone they are alive in your heart? Anyway, I believe something like that.

I had the 5 times a week thing and after year 3 my T went away for the best part of a year. It was bad stuff. Now I would be able to tolerate it better.

Welcome JayMac.

I am not new here, but I am one of those in the background reading and maybe being selfish by not sharing much. This forum is one of the best (if not the best) around. I have been on many, but the longest on this one. I actually come here twice a day, and feel so at home even though I hardly post.

The people you find here are so decent, so accepting and so sharing. I hope you find your comforting space here and that you work along with all of us as we progress through our respective journeys.

Hi :-)welcome JayMac

I love that "I'm New!!" in the subject line.
I might be "old"....I think I've been here for a long time
at least 5 years??

Hi JayMac! Welcome to this forum. I come and go depending on how much time I have, but when I get into it for a few days - I love it. Like others are saying, everyone is great. It's so wonderful to hear about the very different experiences we all have - yet to see the similarities.

Cheers!

Welcome JayMac

Hang in there til Sep 3. You can do it. I know how difficult it is - try to keep your mind on other things.

Best wishes

Joni

Yeah, it is trite, but it's a phrase that gets the point across. I've become accustomed to having her around (fyi, I have some abandonment issues underlying all this).

Thanks for all your support =)

JayMac,

I received your response for my problem and have reposted...I would love to hear about what your "abandonment issues" are as I believe to have the same problems. Take Care and Thank You.
