So I really felt like I could let it go...two weeks went by pretty well then 3 weeks and problems and urges again arise. It's not as bad as it was.. but I can tell it would resume if I gave in.. This is the second time I've had this resurge @ 3 wk point( except the other time I didn't yet know about limerence and gave in). Is a cycle like this one typical?

Hi Lost,

In my experience, I do indeed get the same sort of irresistible urges to make contact with my LO every few weeks. For a while I seem to be doing relatively OK but then it seems just unbearable again. It would be interesting to see if others on here experience the same.

Back to "if I only knew"--I update her now and again as she seemed interested and you feel like you need to finish the story. I suppose a will to keep it going mostly. She might be truly interested as counseling (not marriage directly) is part of her work and what we shared, but LE needs more reciprocation. So it feel a far more strained and what's the point to make contact. I still feel the pull once a week, better than every minute lol.

The pull for me is more static. When I'm under stress or trying to help my DH with his current grief, I reach out for the LE itself, but not my LO (we're both married).
