Sounds pretty durn rational to me...I see her the friday after this and I keep thinking how I just want that day off to be a full day off (well, except the pet sitting job). But I don't know if that's avoidance. If I'm just not wanting to deal with the issues.
At the same time, taking a longer break sounds really appealing too. But at the same time I worry she will assume that means there really is horrible stuff happening with my dom and I'm acting out and I don't know.
Taking a self care day, whilst recovering from surgery & being exhausted from work/school/physical healing? Is totally legitimate.
Being concerned your T will jump to the wrong conclusion because of other info they’re privy to? Also legitimate.
Easy fix. >>> Write them a short message explaining that you want to take the day off on Friday the AA/BB/2021 for some rest & self-care as surgery, work, & school have left you more exhausted than you planned on... and that you’ll look forward to seeing them for your next scheduled appointment on Friday the CC/DD/2021.
Take the day off.
Quick note to prevent misunderstandings.
Voila! Have cake & eaten it, too!
AFTER you’ve had some time off to rest & recover & consider what you want... As @Sophy (in lockdown) sats... Next session you go to? Discuss having a few lighter sessions for awhile, or taking a break for awhile, or a monthly just checking in / keeping lines of communication open, &/or other possible solutions.
