    Exciting News for WebMD Members!

    We've been busy behind the scenes building new message boards for you. You'll have new and easier ways to find messages, connect with others, and share your stories.

    And, this will all be available on your smartphone or other mobile device!

    What Do You Need to Do?

    The message board you're used to will be closing in the coming weeks. While many of your boards will be making the move to our new home, your posts will not. Want to keep a discussion going? Save posts you want to continue (this includes your member profile story), so that you can re-post them in the new message boards.

    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.
