Eight months is great! Don't beat yourself up too much about your lapse last night. It's over, and it does happen from time to time. It doesn't mean that you will start backsliding on a regular basis.

And while I'm sure it doesn't feel good, it sounds as if your psychiatrist isn't abandoning you, he still wants to see you. He'll just see you in addition to your seeing the psychologist. I doubt it's even all that personal. Psychiatrists more and more are doing medication management rather than therapy. He might just want to make sure you get more therapy than he can provide.

It'll be ok. And if you don't like the psychologist, you can always look for another. It might be interesting to have one woman and one man in your professional team. Bring up different issues.

It sounds like you have a good plan in place.
