I just increased my IC sessions to 3 times a week and I'm realizing there is a fine line between "feeling the pain" and falling into overt depression.
This week I broke down in 2 of the 3 sessions, which from a therapeutic POV apparently is progress but from my POV it just feels horrible. If I understand the psychology of it, we've started pulling out emotional slivers from my brain and over time this can create benefits.
Based on what's going on my therapist wants me to increase to 4 sessions a week until we work through the current issues. And the whole time I'm doing this I keep hearing my marriage counselor (diff therapist) in the back of my head telling me she thinks I need to be committed. She brought this up a couple of different times in our MC sessions and was strongly suggesting a full time treatment facility to help with depression.
Anyone ever done an in-patient treatment facility for depression? Suggestions of where I should look for one if this is a path I need to take?
Second, these are early days for dealing with my own trauma from my LTA, but is 4X IC sessions a week a lot? too little? thoughts?
