I've just started seeing my therapist, but I only get to see her for another 8 sessions. I was subconsciously keeping her at arms length because I knew how it would feel to be 'abandoned' at the end of the time (I have BPD, so rejection and abandonment/attachment issues are something that happens a lot to me). Yesterday when I saw her I told her how bad my week had been and she was just like 'Aw <insert my name. I'm so sorry, I had no idea', and her voice just sounded so much like she cared (whether she does or not is a different issue, but nevermind). For as long as I remember I have gotten attached to females older than me who showed me care. From what I can work out, it seems to be that they offer me care that I didn't have from my mum (because I pushed her away due to fear of rejection after my brother was born). The fact I now feel some sort of attachment to my therapist is now potentially going to cause problems in my therapy. I think I need to talk to her about it because I don't want it to sabotage therapy, and it's really unhealthy when I feel like this, however, she could react quite badly, and I'm not sure of the outcome. Just wondered if anyone had any ideas, or if anyone had experienced anything similar and been able to tackle it with their therapist? I'm so embarassed, lol.
