Catmom Posted June 13, 2008 Report Share Posted June 13, 2008 Hi guys-I hope I can get some feedback on this from the good people on this board. A while back I posted about my strong feelings of attachment ("transference") for my therapist I have been seeing for 3 1/2 years for compulsive gambling. He is saying that it is time for me to terminate & this has been very emoitionally pianful for me.Anyway, the reason I am posting today is that I saw him yesterday and he commented that my strong feelings for him are "adolescent" & basically immature. He did not say this harshly but that was the gist of what he meant. I told him that I was hurt by this at the time.Is this true? Do I as a 48 year old woman have the emotional maturity (in this area) of an adolescent? Admittedly, any person who is an addict is immature, but this is hard to accept. Needless to say, I am sorry I ever said anything about this to him. He still doesn't offer me any help in getting through this. Let me assure everyone reading this that all I EVER said to him was that I have a "transference" for him. I haven't confessed undying love, etc and I have said that I totally understand that I am a client, nothing more.The more I write, the more upset I am getting, so I will stop now.Thanks for reading this.Catmom Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
