When the help hurts

My therapist quit yesterday.

Sure, she said she sustained a sports injury and needs to scale down her practice to heal. And of course I hope she is okay and all that.

And it is also just one more person I trusted who is suddenly gone. No warning. No time to prepare or process.

Is it even worth it to try to find another one? To open myself up to yet another stranger?

I’d laugh at this point but I’m in another bout of disbelief.

Just how many hits is one human supposed to be able to take before they cannot get back up?
