I went to therapy and had a warm psychologist. She would address me “sweetheart” all the time. She once gave me a gift, a small stone with fragmented pattern on it. It was put into a small bag. She told me to hold it when I feel bad, it is like holding all of my fragments into one. It is a powerful symbol. However, I have DID, so my gift has gone missing, assuming that one of my alters have trashed it. I still miss the gift. I held it when I slept.
