Daisy, were you in for extra sessions that recently?

What I think "flight into health" might mean is that if you have been dealing with really hard stuff in therapy, the flight into health might be a retreat from the hard stuff to get a break from it.

I hope you can ask him to explain what it means. Also, to discuss if there is a way to back off from the hard stuff somewhat without having to quit therapy.

Sometimes when I'm feeling good, it is kind of hard to think of what to discuss in therapy, but usually I can get some good work done during these times. But a key thing is feeling in control of how much I am opening myself up. When feeling good and functional, it is especially scary to think about opening up the hard stuff and running the risk of ruining the good mood and functional phase.

My therapist and I have done a lot of discussion about how to help me feel in control of those boundaries.
