Even more therapy?!?!

So now the intensive therapy program I’m in says they think I need an additional hour per week to work through my complex PTSD. I just don’t think I can handle even more therapy. I don’t know if I’m going to agree to it or not. My PTSD does get in the way of my life but it’s all just too much. Oh, and I’m only allowed to do the extra hour if it’s while I’m in the intensive treatment program. Ugh.

Are they just trying to bill more?

For some organizations/people it’s just about :moneybag:

Therapy is important. But I understand if it’s too overwhelming. Try to find energy!

Or if you can take a break? Have you asked your doc??

When I was first admitted in the States, the social worker said insurance would start to complain after 3 weeks,

Guess how long I was in there?

This is under a grant, but I don’t think it’s for money. I think they really believe I need it

Therapy is hard. I haven’t done intensive therapy so I don’t know how you feel, but I did go to a therapist every week for 2 years and I worked my butt off to change some of my thinking and behaviors so that I could mature emotionally and function in relationships better. I learned so much. A lot of times I didn’t want to go but I forced myself. I am proud of myself for sticking with it and it did make a difference in my life.

There’s such a thing as receiving too much therapy

I’m in the same boat

It can be overwhelming to be honest
