> I don't know why he suddenly brought up once every two months. I will talk to him about it. It may be he was just confused. But I'm scared he's pushing me out and I'm scared to bring it up. I'm afraid I'll ask him what he wants to do and agree to that rather than talking about what I want. This is what I characteristically do.

This would be a great opportunity to use therapy to change your characteristic response. :)

It doesn't have to be unpleasant to talk about what you want as opposed to what your therapist wants. I've had some of my most helpful sessions that way.

It was me who was asking about insurance. I wasn't sure why your therapist was anxious to go from once a month to once every two months. But perhaps he is following what he thinks to be your goal of tapering and ending therapy. A good talk might be enlightening.

I've been gradually learning lately that avoiding unpleasantness has caused me far more grief than "simply" facing it would. I know it's not really simple at all of course.
