Advice & Tips: 2014 first appointment after intake appointment. With my past experience I expect that this is a good match for me. I did find the suportive connection I feel I need at this time. Therapy is hard work and today was no exception, I was surprised to say the least that I found under my fear of up coming jaw surgery was the thought I did not want to 'come home' or survive the procedure. Even typing this it is to fresh and painful, but I am safe, and have a Pdoc appointment tomorrow, which I promised I would keep, (I never miss no matter what, and and almost always early) The Tdoc sees that I am strong and have skills to manage yet maybe I should ask my Pdoc to brainstorm and adjust my meds. As Tdoc sees deep sadness, not the flatness. Could I ever admit to being sad? Hummm, of course if I was not feeling anything why would i be crying as I type this?

Advice & Tips: Some how I froze my iPad and lost my text. So I very glad to announce the end of therapy where I was part of the process. Past endings were one sided either program constraints or bad therapy experience. I am sad but the last few months were mostly around being a working example of a good ending. Along with reinforcing my skills on managing my depression and anxiety. So I am ready and will continue therapy in my new town. I'm glad I could stay in therapy with this psychologist for as long as I did, travel, cost, ( I am still not over not being able to pay) and the need to experience a good ending, with an authority figure, a person that is male, and someone I admire for being so consistent in creating a safe place for me, so I could take what I learned and be in the world. this time makes this ending a good sad.

Advice & Tips: I came prepared to make the July 8th my last paid appointment due to financial reasons. (I did think I would have time to give more notice). With discussion my T offered me 'no charge' for a reasonable amount of time to get my finances in order or time to transition to another therapist in the community where payment is based on income.($10 per session and up) This was completely unexpected and the impact profound at first I refused (shame of poor financial management) (pride of independence ???) with more discussion I was educated as to why therapy from a treatment perspective that ends suddenly would not be in my best interest.
