That "run" feeling might be old - part of the memory that came up. It seems to me that there is a level of safety that you've reached, which allowed the memory to make itself known. Scary as that is, it is huge progress. You need a witness to your pain and suffering for healing to really begin.

Some how I bet if you'd revisited the memory outright, you wouldn't have had to work so hard to stay in the room. Often we are avoiding ourselves as much as our therapists. And sometimes after an intense session it is Ok to take it easy. In my therapy we often talk about how it felt to tell him or be vulnerable with him around a memory, instead of telling about the memory again. I've found it works for me.

I really do know how scary it is to need your therapist and to feel dependent and close. Talk to your therapist before you just decide to quit. Maybe cutting back to 1x a week is needed but together you should decide. For me, it was to increase, not decrease.

I hope you can rest and have some fun over the weekend.
