Sometimes I think about going for counseling but then I imagine what questions the counselor might ask, and find myself answering them, which leads to more analyzing(So, what's REALLY bothering you, what are you REALLY afraid of, or dreading, -- and my faves: What's the worst thing that could happen? The best thing that could happen? Develop ideas/contingincies . . .) and eventually things get into perspective for me. . . just my thoughts. . .
I first pray. I have had many weird, unexplained, too-"out there"-for-words, TOO-coincidental happenings and resolution of questions, after praying. Things totally unanticipated ----- unthought-of answers . . . so I pray and then kind of sit back and watch to see what happens!
I talk w/friends who may or may not be able offer advice. Sometimes all I need is a sounding board, to bounce thing off. I discuss nurse-type subjects/issues w/trusted nurse friends . . . I sometimes will ask opinions of several people, then weigh advice with my own knowledge/feelings, in order to make some decisions. Other decisions are best left to me, or to me and dh.
