how do i deal with the fact that my therapist is dying? I saw him for 2 1/2 years and he was diagnosed with brain tumors and cancer in his brain. I finally ended it this August and he referred to someone he is close to but I can't seem to get over a) the fact that he's dying b) the fact I can't see him anymore (my new shrink said I should cut off contact) c) The senselessness of his disease (he used to be a priest) and I just plain miss him and I'm angry he's dying. I've never lost anyone close to me. I can't shake this pain and misery. I am in therapy twice a week and on a boatload of meds but when it comes to this issue I have no control and cry severely. I don't know what is grief and what is my depression (I was diagnosed sever major depression recurrent). Any advice?
