I think my therapist himself has become one of my personalities -like a positive introject -- Like an imaginary friend. I was neglected as an infant/child, and have always longed for someone to be interested in me. Although I now have many real friends, I still maintain one in my head who is always watching me - like from mirrors - and does not talk, just is a friendly, interested presence. This is something I feel is time to stop, as it has become maladaptive rather than adaptive. I want to talk to God in my head, rather than addressing myself constantly to this imaginary other. I have not told my psychologist, since the introject is HIM! I do not want him to think I'm getting weird about him, although it IS pretty strange, and I am still quite uptight about the bizarreaspects of my MPD thinking. I do not have any kind of sexual inclinations towards him, but just want to stop internal conversations with him. Does anyone else have this kind of relationship with their therapist?
