Therapy break

We are now officially on a break from therapy. We dont see Eileen again until January 4th.
We were really nervous about the break. We had a good chat with eileen yesterday about it. I told her the part I was nervous about was the few days after christmas, from Dec. 27th until dec. 30th. Those are the days where we will be on our own and at home. They are the days we are most likely to struggle.
She offered me a phone check in, which I was so thankful for, so we are going to have a phone check in on the 28th of december. I will text her on that afternoon and we’ll arrange a time for her to ring me later on that evening.
She has said that we can email her if we need to as well. She said she wont check her email every day, but she will still be checking it over the christmas period.
She said she won’t respond to emails, but she will read everything that we send her.
It helps us just writing things out, and sending them to her. Just getting our feelings out really helps a lot.
I’m hopeful we’ll be ok over the break, although it does seem like a really long time to the kids. At least we have recordings of Eileen reading to the kids, which we listen to regularly at night when we cant sleep.
