Hello...Im back..:) I went to my therapist yesterday and she told me that I can start to back off of therapy now since I am doing so well. Instead of going once a week skipping and going every other week. She wants me to get to where I am going only once a month. The idea of that scares me but she is right Im really doing good. She told me that I dont have to have a "crisis" to come to therapy and that she has a couple of people that just come to talk through thoughts and ideas that they have. I dont have the money to be able to just come and "shoot the breeze" with her..but, I dont want to back off of therapy too much. After I had my surgery, all of my symptoms...depression, anxiety, and the signs of bipolar disorder im doing so much is like im a completely different person..but now, I dont know what to do about therapy.

The thought of not going to therapy anymore scares me. I dont want to loose the connection that I have with my therapist...I dont want to stress too much because then I will get worked up and depressed yet then, I also want to be able to still come and see her. But, she told me to not make up things just to come see her..but I am the type of person that would do that...I like being helped and having someone to listen to..I couldnt stand to loose her. I dont knwo what to do about these feelings..but I also dont want to bring it up with her because she would start to think that I was becoming "unstable" when really im not. I have just gotten so used to therapy i cannot imagine my life without it. I dont know what to do or say to her...Any advice?
