Hello and Welcome to HealinWell. I am so glad you are working through the book and going out for an hour....kudos to you.
Yes I have felt drained from the emotional stress of going to therapy for 50 minutes. When I get back in the care with my hubby I would sometimes start to cry as it is hard work and I would feel panicky like "is this going to be me the rest of my life.
It got better so hang on and just try to stay in the moment and don't let the panic take over. I am so glad to meet you and please keep posting.
