Cat goddess ,
I'm sorry to hear you're having such a hard time - letting go of people you've known for a long time can hurt.
I really hope that your new therapist is a good one and that you get on with each other.
Let us know how you are.

I know how you feel. I have been seeing the same Pdoc since I was pregnant with my 8 y/o son. I feel like he's family. It may be difficult in the begining with your new doc. Then again, it may be nice to see someone different. Who knows? You might just click. When my Pdoc was on an extended vacation, I saw his associate. He was wonderful. I really enjoyed talking with him. He also put a little twist on things. You know, same story from me, but different opinion from another Pdoc. I once asked my Pdoc what he would do with me when it's time to retire. He jokingly said, "don't worry about that, I have three kids to put through college." I know he was making a joke of it, but I went home wondering. It's kinda scary, I have put all of my thoughts and feelings into this man's hands. What would I do if he wasn't there anymore? He has seen me at my best, and has seen me at my worst.
Anyway, I am new to this board too. Wanted to say, "hello" and I hope you get off on the right foot with your new therapist.
