Could use a friend? Did too much today, now overwhelmed. DGD wanted to give me the kitten she picked out for herself in the litter they had 6 weeks ago, I was very surprised as her other grandmother asked for it and she cried NO. So I brought Sara home, she is so cute but she reminds me of the kittie I got right after my mom died Reggie and Reggie ran away end of July, SO now I can not stop crying and have called son who works till 11p to come pick up the kitten. I feel like such an idiot. I have been on the low side for like 5 weeks now and can not deal with it. I am always hypomanic if not manic, so my body is used to that. DR want me on low side but this is no good. I am sorry I should not be posting all this crap to you all.

Plan and simple I just want my mom. I know I am being foolish and a baby.

I have appt with new therapist tomorrow at mental health clinic. The first therapist needed therapy more than me and I am not exaggerating. Have appt with primary on Friday for several things but biggie is he needs to check thyroid.. I am running around with long sleeves on and then a jacket in A/C places.If I call psychiatrist he is going to want to know about thyroid before any new meds, and he will want to see me and with holiday coming he will of course have no appts.

Please just say a prayer for me.

Bein' "bad" again, staying up and watching TV. ( But it isn't even 11 PM yet!)

Started back with my therapist today. Feeling incrementally better already; it's nice to be able to talk with someone who really knows me (have known her since 1994), who can help me wade through the "stuff" that's gummed-up inside me and knows the best pathway to take to resolve things the way I need to do it. Not sure that ins. will cover her because she's not on their provider list, but maybe can work something out with the insurance, I don't know. They told me that my out-of-network deductible for one year (30 appt limit) is $7,000.00 !!!!!!!!!!!I will be seeing her regardless, though. She told me it was really a gift to be working with me. Imagine that!

Other than that I am watching INTERVENTION and chewing bubble-gum.( And I am clothed, Poi!)

Never being foolish when acknowledging feelings :)

Yeah, those nutty therapists are a real pain- a lot of work just to get through a session that's supposed to HELP :)

Consider yourself "prayed" :)

Nancy-

No need to apologize. However, your apology is appreciated, in that the action shows that you have some insight to your behavior. Your Inner Voice may be telling you something like, "You really shouldn't be posting this crap to them". Like many enigmas, this is both true and untrue.

The statement may be true in that your expression is heartfelt reality and this is a forum proclaiming to be "entertainment for nurses". However: "posting this crap" is your way of seeking relief from your psyche pain, thereby seeking comfort, thereby feeling better about yourself and your situation. And isn't that what we're all here for- seeking a little pleasure or comfort?

So let's just say for the moment that your Inner Voice is being a little too careful and your Intuitive Actions are guiding you down the Correct Path. And that's one point I want to make with you: What you're doing is the right thing to do. What you're doing in "posting this crap" is expressing yourself; getting it out into the open air for examination and scrutiny. And isn't that what we do when we seek services from a Therapist? We express ourselves and the Therapist gives us back a perspective in a different, and sometimes new, light. We feel as though we've been validated which assists in easing our pain.

Using this concept of expression/validation, we can perform therapy on ourselves. You've already set those wheels in motion by posting. Your Friends on the forum reply in the best ways that we can and those replys probably give you a little comfort. That comfort is, again, what you're seeking. So, your endeavor has been fruitful in some respect.

Let's take your actions a little further and keep that momentum going: Right now, at this very moment, "What are you doing right now?" You're reading my words, anticipating the next thought of understanding which comes to your mind. Are you thinking about your emotional pain? You are still feeling your pain, but you're not concentrating on your pain. You're cognitively assimulating information- reading these written words in order to understand whatever concept I'm attempting to put forth, right? Your action of using your cognitive skills is distracting you from your pain, for the moment.

"For the moment" is a quick fix, for whenever we cease the current action of putting our pain on the back burner, the pain comes back to the forefront and we again experience our psyche pain. The question becomes: "How can we keep that momentum of putting our pain on the back burner?"

I'm not advocating the idea of not experiencing your pain by putting it on the back burner. The action of experiencing pain is a pathway to Understanding and Higher Consciousness. I'm merely suggesting that a respite from pain is also necessary for stamina and growth.

The method in which we deal with our emotional pain is the essence of several Wise Peoples teachings. You're obviously aware of some of those methods. For example, you asked that we say a prayer for you, believing the action of knowing Others are expending energy for your benefit will give you some peace. Or, perhaps, the action of prayer will summon a Higher Diety to come to your aid. Whatever your belief, you are using a method to endeavor and grow. That's a good action and a good belief.

So let's just say for another moment that I have been summoned by Whatever Forces That Be to share with you some tried and true methods I have found to help me get past my emotional pain, okay? Okay.

Continue on your Present Path, continue your search, and make those actions tangible. You've already begun by expressing yourself in the written word. That's good. Take your actions a step further. Make those feelings, those thoughts into something you can see, feel, and experience. Use whatever medium you feel comfortable with. Try not to focus on the product, however, if you're like the majority of us, you will. "Practise provides opportunity for probable improvement." Find your method of expression and keep doing it, everyday, reguarly.

I could go on and on, Nancy. But I want to try and end my comment by giving you some hope and explain the therapeutic process to you. The act of making thoughts and feeligs tangible causes the brain to be able to have something that's real to process. That act of processing leads to a heightened awareness and understanding. Understanding leads to increased comfort. And comfort is what you seek.

Other doors shall open for you. Be ready. Talk to your Therapist about these things I've sugested. And, as another wise man, Joseph Campbell encouraged, "Follow your bliss".

The very best to you, Nancy.

Dave

I'm watching TV- Today Show. Chemo is not being nice to my innards this week....but only 3 months left YEAH :yeah: That will make 20 months total- so I'm definitely on the tail end of this :). And, at least with the pills, I don't have to go to the hospital to be on tele, like I was with the arsenic.... that was interesting- and a pain in the butt (literally at the end- I got shingles on my a$$ the last week of it) :uhoh3: !!! I'm incredibly fortunate that I ended up with something that is treatable and has a very good complete remission rate at 5 years. Gotta look at the upside of all of this :):up:

I jumped out of bed when I heard the 2 alarms I had set go off at the same time. That is not a peaceful way to wake up at all!
