Hi Annierose!

Nice to hear from you.

I feel so comfortable going to once a week. I really am able to handle things by myself. It was my idea. One day I said "Maybe we should talk about cutting back to once a week". I didn't even plan to say it. I knew that we would discuss it - that bringing it up didn't mean that it would have to happen. He said that he had been thinking the same thing (he didn't say how LONG he had been thinking that, and I'm not about to ask him). Probably the most important thing that my therapist has done is to allow as much dependence as I wanted. He has truly allowed me to control the frequency and intensity. He's not worried about seeing me less, and neither am I.

He's quite proud of me. I have come a very long way. From disabled for a decade to a responsible full time job. He still hasn't quite figured out why I was able to do so well.

I know it is the right time to cut back because I DON'T have a feeling in my stomach. But don't ask me to go less than once a week! I can imagine that at some point I could do that. When it is time. And not before.

You sound proud of your reduction, and you should be. Insurance issues are the worst. Money makes therapy so complicated!

No grandkids yet - my daughter is waiting for the right time (and there will be a right time...). This is fine with me. She's living halfway across the country. I'd be happy if she moved back closer before she had kids. My son is out of the Army. He is getting married in August. They are living in Germany where both work as contractors for the Army. My youngest has one more year of college.

My dad died three years ago, and I've been going to the cottage on the lake every other weekend with my mother. I'm enjoying having time with her, and she loves to see my dog.

How is work? And your kids?
