Last week I was proactive about that though. I thought back to the days when my therapist taught dbt, and I thought how my meds doctor wants me in dbt but realizes I can’t afford yet another weekly trip to that end of town.
So I compromised. I asked my therapist if she still has all the lesson plans from when she taught dbt, and if she’d be willing to have mini dbt with just me during our sessions. She does and she is.
So now once a week, I will have dbt with my therapist. I will relearn the old skills and I’ll strive to be better.
And of course, the dbt lessons will allow room for the day-to-day crap that might come up and need working out in therapy.
I’m excited. I think it was very wise minded of me to come up with this idea.
