My therapist recently told me that I was ready to be done with therapy. We were going to have one more session in two weeks, but I had to postpone, so it’s been 3 weeks since that session, and I’ve honestly had a really rough backslide. I’ve been insecure, neurotic, self-hating, having lots of mood swings, and just general feeling like my insides are going to boil over. I don’t think I’m doing this because I feel abandoned by her (though I love her and she is the most amazing therapist I’ve ever had), but maybe I am subconsciously because I’ve heard that this is common for people with BPD.
So, I guess my question is have you ever backslide into depression/anxiety/etc. after a period of doing well because your therapist told you you were ready to leave therapy or cut down on sessions?
