I've been seeing my p-doc for 6-1/2 years. I tried terminating once and just seeing him every few months for meds, but I couldn't bear it. I now see him every other week, which is, to me, the right amount. He is still in my life but doesn't dominate my life. I see another therapist (a DBT therapist) weekly and that is where most of the work on depression gets done. I have made a lot of friends through AA and rely on them a lot. But I still need to see my p-doc. I can't imagine life without him. I love him. We have a deep bond. I rarely go a day without thinking of him. When I tried to terminate, my DBT therapist asked me how much space he occupied in my mind and what I would do with that space if I stopped seeing him. I didn't want to admit that he took up a lot of my mental space and still does.
