Yippeee!! What a change from before! It's what it *should* be--about *you* getting what *you* need and not you being focused on *her* all the time.
Maybe once per week might be a better pace? It kinda forces you to live life and apply therapy vs. therapy *being* your life? Anyway, whatever, it sounds great--congrats!
> When they're going this well, I find I'm not on Babble nearly as much and it's harder to share what's going on with me with you guys. It seems less eventful, or I'm less motivated perhaps (because I'm calm and peaceful rather than in pain, I guess).
> But therapy this week (I only had one session) was lovely. I kind of wandered around a lot in the session (I mean with what I was talking about -- I sat in one place), but I talked about feeling dependent on her and scared of when my insurance runs out (in about a year!, but still), and I cried and it felt really good. She just stayed with me; she didn't try to fix it. She just witnessed my sadness and it was comforting somehow.
> I feel so lucky to have her in my life as a support, someone to talk things through with, someone who really cares about me. I'm so glad I didn't screw things up with her. I'm so glad our relationship is still intact. I feel so much love for her, and right now that's only slightly painful for me. It's mostly really rewarding, to love someone that much and have them care about you back.
> Anyway, just thought I'd share some of the good stuff.
