Is your therapist accepting new patients?

Mine was talking about cutting back to every other week. I can't handle every week. We had agreed to get me "stable" before working on the dependency. Somehow I don't feel stable if I'm actively planning suicide (granted, 3 years down the road), feel like I have no therapist, unable to confide in friends, only doing laundry because I spilled chocolate ice cream on my only pair of comfortable pants, hoping that my husband (we're separated) wants to cook dinner for the kids because I don't want to decide what to cook, shop, cook, or clean up, or even have the confusion of the kids being here for dinner. If she wants one thing and I want something else, if I can come up with a plan to get to where she wants to go, but do it my way, she usually will agree.

I did have a 2 year period when I was doing pretty well, and I had even progressed far enough to make a next appointment 3 months out. So I was feeling independent enough for that. But... I crashed 2 months into the 3 months. Sigh.

I see her tomorrow. And, as she would say, "I feel like I'm doing all of the work around here".

P.S. She won't allow my dependency to continue because she says it isn't healthy for me. (What a caring soul)

P.P.S. I love the Subject line: Forever Therapy.
