Re: Are extra sessions self-indulgent?

The timing of this thread is so perfect and strange. I was just sitting here, struggling with myself, debating whether to ask my therapist for an extra session this week (because she's going out of town next week and we have so much to process, and I didn't really get to any of it today) when I decided to stall by looking at Babble, and I see this thread! I took it as a sign from God (although I'm an atheist, I like pretending to believe in God whenever it can justify an action I've been wanting to take) so I immediately called her to say I wanted to see her tomorrow.

I know we decided to reduce the number of sessions, but in a way it's kind of a crazy time to do that since we have all this drama between us to process, which hangs over my head between sessions. On the other hand, I called her earlier today just to explore it as a possibility, explaining that I felt this urgency to see her again, but that I also wasn't sure if it was a good idea or if I was just being obsessive. She wasn't sure, either. So I asked, "Well, is it even an option?" and she said it would be difficult for her, but she could make it happen if I really felt I needed it. Is it just me, or does this seem like another boundary-issue situation to you guys?

Sorry, I'm going off on a tangent. But I do agree that it's not self-indulgent to eat when you're hungry, and therapy is helping me so much I can't really believe it. Even with all the craziness.
