I don't know...can you go up to three?
I wish I could go to two. Will you talk with your T about it? and about how you're not sure about what you should do?
I usually see my pdoc once every 2 weeks, but I've see him a couple of times two weeks in a row when he thought I needed it
I got some extra sessions for a while, twice a week, alternating with once a week, but I don't think I'm going to get that back.
I think that sometimes I can manage to use art, writing, whatever to deal with some stuff between and share it.
I think I should do some type of therapy once a day :-)
