My therapist said she was retiring at the end of Oct and that she recommends this other counselor the other person I see maybe quiting in a year all this came about Thursday. I cried the whole session with therapist I said at the end there is nothing more for me to say, therapist is being very supportive but 5 years I have become so attached to therapist. I did not sleep good all night I am crying all the time I even think about being left alone I have thought but then I think I have to get one thing done first and before the end of October I can leave also. parents not good also. I have 6 cats I would want cats to stay together no matter what anyone got any ideas?

Change is always hard. It is not good to become so attached to a therapist that you are totally dependant on him/her...then when he/she retires (or moves or whatever), then you fall apart...it sounds like you were unheathily too attached to your therapist.

Sometimes new therapists are good because they have a different way of looking at situations and can help you in good/positive ways....so I would encourage you to go to the new therapist. Your therapist knows you well enough, I'm sure, to refer you to a therapist that will be on a similar wavelength as you.

For the cat situation...most apartments will not accept more than 2 so you will really have to do an extensive search. Maybe look for a rental home instead of apartments. I have four cats, so I understand not wanting to separate.

I will pray for you.
