Thanks Dinah, I really appreciate that. I am going back to school, and its hard but I sorta like it, I am not sure that makes sense. I am having more panic attacks and anxiety but I am learning to control it. My flashbacks have started up again but this time I am telling myself that I survived it once I can survive it again especially since this is just remembering not really going through it.
I am only seeing my therapist PRN due to school demands. I am slowly finding my groove. School doesn't always seem safe but I am working through that too, remembering that I put myself there. My family is supportive and my p-doc/therapist is too. If I call he calls right back.
I see that you are struggling to reduce your t sessions to once a week. I understand how that is, I recently did that within the last year. It is hard to hang on to the safe feeling your t gives you throughout the week but I find I am able to cope on my own, I still have meltdowns, I get upset but I am determine to manage this on my own.
That is what I have decided therapy is, a chance to talk out how you feel about all the crap that brought you there, but in the end it is something we must solve on our own for it to matter to us in the end. I might be talking crap, but it is my crap and it is sorta working for me. Somedays better than others.
Let me know how you are. I have miss you and everyone else
