How long have any of you successfully gone without talk therapy?

How often do you see your therapist and how long are your appointments?

Group therapy has been helpful for me.

I think it will be good for me. I would like to talk to people who understand and can relate to this.
They have useful recommendations that have helped in a very similar situation. Sometimes someone else puts words to what I am feeling or experiencing. That is helpful too.

I didn't find talking therapy (CBT) helpful so I've been without anything like that for the last few years. It was the right medication I needed.

I haven’t even been to my therapist in months, probably why my life has been completely turned upside down and I destroyed everything :( I’d highly recommend the therapy, it really does help some things and keeps you in line.

Hi Wishbone, how are you feeling most days? In what ways has it helped you and how long has it helped? 💗

The right medication helped as it felt like it connected a loose wire or something. Therapy didn't help.

I am in talk therapy but I grow weary of the thought of it sometimes. My sessions have gone from one hour to two hours because I couldn't wind down in one hour. I'm hoping to score on an OCD med I can tolerate.

I'm finding I can't go more than a month without else I start to have problems. I'm hoping one two-hour session/month will be enough. Do you find that with your OCD when you haven't been assertive about a situation with someone that your thinking goes on overdrive from wondering when you can reach resolution?
