I had to work hard to contain my overwhelming need to be a good object for this bereft girl, to keep myself from trying too hard to repair the trauma that I knew could never be fully reparable (Harris, 2009). And to remind myself that no matter how much I identified with her, or even loved her, her experience was not the same as mine and she was not mine, and the best I could do was guide her toward finding her own way.

In many ways, Sophie claimed, the rehearsals were much harder than the reality of her mother’s death, partially because they caused her to relive the loss repeatedly and partially because she held these fantasies privately, unwitnessed, and on her own. Ongoing anticipation of her mother’s death also set the 26 Susan Klebanoff stage for Sophie living in a kind of dream state, where she wasn’t certain what was real and what was pretend. This I believe was relived by me in the confusion of my opening dream, and reenacted in my waiting room so many years later.
