    I'm a little confused as to where you are going to therapy now. In the U.S., outpatient therapy is where people begin to find out unless they wait until they are in a crisis, in which case the begin in a hospital. For most, outpatient therapy is a lot less restricted and intensive so that it doesn't limit your life aside from an hour or so a week. As I said, I don't know what you are doing now but maybe this might mean a day program? I have been in one of those before and it is a more intensive therapy that typically takes place during the work day/school day. In day programs you typically have both group and individual sessions throughout the day and it allows you to make more progress faster. This is very helpful if you haven't responded well to typical hour-a-week sessions. if you can post again and tell me what you are doing for therapy well I might be able to help you some more. However, no matter what, if you trust your therapist it would be a good idea to follow his or her recommendations.

    yeah it is in particular a day program from 9 to 3 with mostley group therapy, it is not so much a crisis thing as it is a skill building workshop for 5 days. It dosen't matter though I already am commited to going on thursday.
