Lizze finished her first round of classes this week and immediately began the second round. Rather than going to class four days a week, she’s down to two days a week. This is nice for a couple of reasons. First of all, it’s easier on her. These classes are very intensive and both physically and emotionally depleting. They serve a very real purpose but it called intensive outpatient therapy for a reason.
The second reason it’s nice that she’s down to twice a week is that we get to have her home more often.
I know these classes are really important for her overall emotional health, but we miss her when she’s gone. She typically comes home exhausted and in need of a break, which sorta takes her away from us again.
I can’t wait until her classes are complete and we can have her back every day. Regardless, I’m so proud of her for doing this because it helps her to be the best she can be. It’s hard work but she’s taking it on like a champ.
