How do you all navigate going from weekly appointments to bi-weekly or less? A little background - I was initially going bi-weekly. I wasn’t sure I was where I should be (therapy versus medical diagnoses) and not sure if I believed in the process. Long story short - biweekly was not enough. Too much was occurring throughout the weeks. I stressed too much about upcoming appointments. I was getting greatly needed relief from my visits and the tools I was learning. But I couldn’t be all in with just twice a month visits. Weekly appointments fixed all of that. I FINALLY felt more comfortable. Finally felt safe in the office. Trusted the process. And the methods were working. YAY! All in all I am trending SO MUCH BETTER than I was before. I have setbacks (some big ones) but I am so thankful to be getting my life back. Well - insurance informed me I have three visits left. I had previously discussed this with the person I see who said we could request reauthorizarion, I can pay out of pocket etc. I am willing to do any and ALL of the above. Fast forward to my appointment today. I’m doing well this week and successfully worked through the minor hiccups of the week. Was having a good appointment when probably 3/4 of the way through something got to me and I started to get a little panicy This was a first. I tried to figure out how to tell her. Then I figured our time was dwindling. And then it was time to wrap up. Phew! I let her know about the appointments and asked her advice on what her opinion was on frequency of my visits(should we try to re-authorize or space visits out basically). She thought going back to every other week would be good, and she held my spot just in case I needed it. She’s very supportive of whatever I think I need (I usually just don’t know). Perfect, right ?! Best of both worlds. Nope. Cue the emotions/increased panic. I think I mostly kept it together while I planned my escape from the office. Bottom line - I’m a bit terrified! I’m excited to try And get through two weeks. That would be a great accomplishment. That’s a testament to where I’m at. I’m also trrrified that A. Simply overthinking this might cause a hiccup. B. TWO WEEKS if I’m not doing well ? That’s a long time. C. Connection is hard for me. I do think it will be hard for me to go back and be comfortable after two weeks. BUT, I DO want to try. The goal is to not need to go eventually! D. I am almost two weeks off of medication after a slow and painful wean. I’m already more edgy as a result. There’s a good chance this will go great. I could have a good two weeks and come ready to work at my next appointment. It just feels scary right now. 14 days. Sooo - what do you all do during the weaning process ?! *I am also super glad that this is anonymous - and that I can process these crazy things with others who might get it. Just typing that out made me feel better (and silly!).
