So hey there, how are you doing? Been a while, hasn’t it? I have over two months to catch you up on, and that has been a hectic time. My apologies for disappearing, but there have been reasons. The last time I wrote to you, I was just getting ready to start the spring semester… Read More #604 – Been a While, Hasn’t It?
I met with my therapist today. We talked about the last two weeks – about the SCA event over the weekend, about how I managed to avoid much anxiety, how much fun I had, and how glad I was to be getting back into an area of the SCA that I used to enjoy very… Read More Progress on Several Fronts
Just like yesterday was a big day in therapy, today was a big day in medication management. I met my new psychiatrist today. We had a good session, I talked both about how I got to the point that I’m at and also my more recent successes over my anxiety. He pointed out that my… Read More Medicate Me
Today was therapy day. We started the session talking about rotten eggs. Apparently there was something in her hot water tap that gave off a strong odor of rotten eggs. When I first went into her office, I went to the restroom, and noticed the smell right off as I was washing my hands. So our… Read More Therapize Me
Okay, not really, the fight was Sunday. Therapy was today, and that’s what we talked about the majority of the time. I was honest that I couldn’t remember what started the fight. I couldn’t at the end of the day Sunday, and I’m even more clueless about it today. I think it was me reacting… Read More Fight! Fight! Fight!
I went to see my therapist today. I told her about the addition to the family (who, for those keeping track, is now using both legs fairly well!) and about some issues with Mom that I haven’t talked about here. (Nothing serious, just dealing with someone who’s very unhappy about where she is in life… Read More The Lighting Guy Was Great
I went to go see my therapist today. We had a good session, talked about the streak of full marks on my checklist (today will be day 37, incidentally), and discussed one of the books that I’m reading, The Anxiety & Phobia Workbook by Edmund J. Bourne, PhD. The exercises at the end of the… Read More A Repeating Theme
Went to go see my psychiatric medication manager this morning. She had an intern sitting in with her, which I was fine with, and she wanted to know about the fatigue that I’d been experiencing during my last visit with her. I told her that I think there’s a combination of my prescriptions that’s conspiring… Read More Quarterly Report
I met with my therapist today. We talked about a lot of things, including politics and my frustrations that have arisen because of same, and then I mentioned that I’ve been purposely going out of my way to avoid being political on my page for various reasons. She wants me to be more authentic with… Read More Change of Plans
We continued last session’s line of discussion in therapy today. Today was difficult to get through. It meant acknowledging some tough truths about my life and beginning the process of coming to grips with them, but I think some good will come out of today’s session. We’re looking forward to long-term goals at this point… Read More Difficult Deeds Done
