Seconds out……round two

Therapy

Today was my second therapy session with the wellbeing service. The second of 6 half an hour phone calls. We discussed how I had been feeling over the past two weeks, what was working and what wasn’t.

Scores

My depression has eased. My anxiety has increased, apparently this is usual when dragging up the past and dealing with old emotions. Overall I am on am plateau. I’ll take that right now.

Homework

This fortnight’s homework is to set aside a “worry” time. This is a set part of the day (15 to 20 minutes) where I am allowed to work through all of my worries. I write them down as they occur during the day and forget about them until my “worry time”.

Concerns

As much as the therapy is helping, I am slightly concerned that it is only six weeks long. I feel I will need something else when it has finished. I don’t want to relapse ever again.
