> And yes, the extreme is normal. When you let this stuff out, the old feelings of NEEDING SOMEONE to help you/save you/comfort you, come out too. And the person saying they will do this for you is your therapist. So OF COURSE you want/need to see her more.

And will the feelings really lessen if I keep talking about them, rather than try to deny them? I'm just afraid to go futher... I feel like I'm digging my own hole.

> It is tough, because it does get expensive. There are ways to have more sessions approved by the insurance company, but your therapist has to go to bat for you. And it doesn't always work.

Well, I'm paying myself so there is no insurance involved. I guess that's good so I don't have to worry about a limit, but at the same time even her sliding scale gets expensive since financially I am barely getting by as it is.
I had to see her twice this week, and it did make it a little easier emotionally, but I just can't afford it. And trust me, I will do anything to be able to afford it, but there are no corners to cut anymore. I'm looking for a 2nd job now, but it's hard to wait for that when I know I need the help now.

In fact when I was leaving last night, she asked me what I wanted to do about next week. (Meaning did I want to come twice again.) I just smiled and said I'd see her on Thursday. Obviously I want to come on Monday again, but I have trouble admitting that I just can't afford it. I wish I could have. Maybe she'd have a solution. But I don't like to talk about money, and especially not admit when I cant afford something. I feel like such a failure. (Maybe I should have made another thread for this part?)
