Norman Rockwell was a sadist.
(For a quick chuckle, when I met my new therapist to be for our ten minute intro, I showed her the book I was reading, "Tragically, I Was An Only Twin", and her second words -- after "Yes, Peter Cook was a genius" -- were "I'd bet he had a diagnosis!" As if you have to have a diagnosible condition in order to be screwed up!)
I'm so glad you checked in here while your moon is in the sign of ICK! I'm glad you're in therapy, because I know how much it helps in supporting me during crises, and hope you're getting some support at home, as well. You've certainly got mine.
(And I forget if I mentioned it, but my husband actually held out his hand the other day -- and it made so much right, AllOfASudden. He offered to call the agency that's treating me, and ask them to change my case manager. Just offering it made the difference, and that he followed through was unspeakable helpful. Gave me that one tiny push I needed, because hubby wasn't home when the call was returned, and -- because he'd given me that hand to help me stay upright -- I could handle the call myself. I didn't feel as if I could make the call -- although, you know I would have anyway -- but having that help was immeasurably good. That's the scenic route to, "Hey, Coral, it's a Good Thing to ask for help and accept it when it's offered." I hope you're doing that.)
