I know that everything must change. I also know for the most part that change is a good thing. However, knowing those things does not negate the fear I have when it is time for things to change. My treatment at the treatment center I go to, is in a state of change right now. It is creating some stress for me. Actually, I have decided that the stress is good for me. It is not an overwhelming stress, it is more like the stress is there because I am being pushed a little bit out of my comfort zone. Just enough that it should effect more growth in that area of my life.
The psychiatrist that I had been seeing since I began going to that treatment center recently left. The new doctor arrives, September 16th and I have an appointment with him on that day. I have shared that I am a little nervous about getting to know a new psychiatrist. I think I will be okay with that change once it happens. It is not like I am going to a totally new place, it is just a new doctor coming in.
I sense a change coming with regards to my counseling. I know that one of the big goals in therapy is to get to a point where the patient no longer relies on the therapist as much or not at all. I know this but yet, it does not make me feel any more confident at the thought of not having my counseling sessions as often or at all. I think it is getting close to that point. After my awesome counseling session the other day, the counselor asked me if I thought I needed to see her individually anymore this month or only at the group sessions. I set an appointment to take place in two weeks. I am glad that my counselor lets me set the pace for my therapy. I do know that it is time for me to start pushing my comfort zones again. It always happens that way, just when I get comfortable, it is time to take on some new challenges.
