"Changing to once a week feels a little like stepping down onto the bottom rung of the ladder, one more step down and that's it, the end - that idea made me anxious to make the shift. "

I'm currently at twice a week. I thought I could do once, but it just didn't feel like enough. If she'd allow it, I'd go 3 times a week but am afraid to ask for that.

In my opinion though, there are still plenty on rungs left on your ladder. I think once I start weening down (whenever that may be) I will go once a week, then once every 2 weeks, then once a month, then once a quarter, then twice a year, then once a year for follow-up and maintenance, and then quit.

Plenty of rungs there :-)

Each of those stages can last for as long as I need then. I might be on the once a month for 3 months or for 13.

My T has other patients that are on varying schedules like that. It only matters what you're comfortable with.
