Now, Daisy, I'm trying to watch what I eat...you're killin' me! ;) ;)


> I like your analogy of winning money and a car. I can intellectually get there, I even already made the first call for an appointment, but something gets twisted inside when this happens. I have to ask myself if I'm afraid to feel better -- do I connect feeling better with losing my therapist? I should bring this up again, I know. Instead I've retreated for the weekend, cancelled my check-in call for today and am practicing my list of good things for Monday.

Have you ever asked your T about feeling better and does that mean you have to stop therapy? If so, what did he say? I expressed this concern to my T and I'm actually pretty confident that feeling better doesn't have much to do with ending therapy. I think I can keep going as long as we aren't trying to work on things that are dead ends, so to speak. Or as long as we feel therapy is productive and we can continue to make progress.

I'm guessing he won't let that go on forever, though. :( At some point, he will have other reasons for terminating, but I don't think my feeling better is one of them.


I'm off to get some cake. :)

Laurie
