I;'m delighted to hear that you haven't harmed yourself already, and hope you never do anything so profoundly unwise. It is NOT, repeat NOT, your " fate", but something you are entirely free to decide not to do. You need to discuss all of this very frankly with your shrink and his/her partner, and make wise plans to protect yourself and continue with therapy. Your shrinks will trust you as far as they should, and if you are less than frank with them, they are likely to notice than and be LESS rather than more trusting. Even shrinks may be puzzled at tiems as to the best way to help someone, but I really doubt that she'd move to CT to avoid helping you further --- surely there are many other nreasons for her to have made the move --- though its common for individual patients to feel neglected and as though there are special reasons why they are being transferred to the care of someone else. And its surely unfair to expect her to revise her life timetable simply to suit what you want, when there's someone else who can care well for you.
