i should be happy but right now i just have this overwhelming feeling of sadness, almost to the point that i want to cry....

my sister and her boyfriend are visiting which is nice but i guess im just tired and its late and i shouldnt even be posting this because ina way i feel like its not that important...

im having trouble with attachment with my counselor, which is a problem, but i love my counselor and she has helped me so much but i wish i could be unattached..but every time i cry in counseling it changes everything...

this is a really random post about more than one thing...but i just feel kinda lousy right now, i guess maybe its because im tired...im also kinda bummed because my counselor wont be here next week so i have to wait 2 weeks to talk to her about stuff...

any advice? or good thoughts?

There is a process in therapy called transference. And that is what is causing you to feel this way towards your counselors absense. It is normal. But she will be back. I am glad to hear that you have a counselor that you trust. Sounds like you really miss her.

yes, i really do miss my counselor...and she really is amazing....i just wish i could separate myself from her sometimes thats all...but then again i have had trouble with attachment my whole life so that is something we are working on....

its just all a process and sometimes it just gets painful for me...

Have you tried journaling until your sessions start back up again? That might help.

Just putting all of your feelings down in writing can sometimes bring some relief, you know?

so things seem to get better for a while but then they just go to crap again...i dont understand. i can be happy one minute then really upset the next. some days i wake up and just feel like crying. i hate it and i wish i could get to the bottom of all this.

my counselor is still out of town and i wont get to talk to her until next monday(the 6th) and i dont know if i can wait that long. we talked about really deep stuff last session and i feel like ive just been dropped off and dont know what to do about it.

i also don't know what to do about the attachment im feeling towards my counselor...any advice there? when iwas feeling happy last week i felt liek i had put a wall up against her so that it was unbreakable so i couldn't be unhappy again...but of course she found a way to break it down and now im unhappy...i dont get it...

and i do write in my journal, every day..that is where most of my thoughts go but sometimes thats just not enough.....oh well...

any advice or comments would be appreciated...thanks...
