How do you know you are done with therapy?

Posted by happyflower on August 9, 2005, at 15:16:36

If you are feeling really good and living life, and have worked out a lot of past issues , are you done? How do you know you are okay?

My T says he won't push to terminate me, until I think I am ready. He trusts that I will let him know that I am ready. How do you know when you are ready? I mean, you will always have problems to work through, life is never perfect and sh#t happens.
I am just scared because I thought I was okay and then wammo my mom caused me to have PTSD. Now the syptoms are over with and I am working on past and present issues. My T assured me that I was okay before the PTSD, he said a lot of people are a lot worse off then I was. He said I was living a pretty normal life except for shutting myself off from people because of trust issues. I just don't know if I can trust myself to know that I am okay.

The EMDR has helped a lot, and I am doing so much better, like a flower opening up for the first time. In fact with the exception of my unhappy marriage, my life is so much better and happier than ever before. What are your thoughts? I have been in therapy since this Jan.
