Karen,

First of all, unless you feel like you need a break from posting, then I think you are fine to continue. I'm studying to be a therapist, and I didn't find a single thing you said offensive. I wouldn't want a therapist that wasn't licensed. I can't blame anyone else for wanting a licensed one either! I almost applied for a counseling position working with social services, and I realized that even though I fit the qualifications, I felt really inexperienced. Thats because I am inexperienced... I guess the problem with poverty, is that when you're poor, you're at the mercy of everyone else pretty much. Which really isn't fair at all.

>I wish you weren't still sick.....

Well that makes two of us! I guess I'm going to have two days of "the worst part of it." I have a feeling tomorrow will be better.

> Do you think your mom will change her mind?

I'm not sure. It's hard to say. I am thinking of having my therapist call her and talk to her about what's going on. I just don't want my T to tell her anything that will require an explanation on my part. My mother has a habit of asking way too many questions. And, I of course, will not want to answer them. So, my T can't tell her about my cutting, or about my dx's, except the Dysthmia, OCD, and panic. Those I'm okay with. But, would those be convincing enough to persuade her into letting me continue once a week? I don't know. It's worth a try.

> Also, if you don't want to do that, maybe you can get therapy through your university? Is that an option?

I thought about that, but when I looked and saw who the "qualified" people assigned to this job were, I didn't feel comfortable with any of them.

> Get some sleep. Hum lots of tunes. Watch TV when you can't sleep, I like Discovery channel personally.

I love the Discovery Channel! Especially when it has stuff on about New Zealand and giant squids. Hehe... :)

>Drink juice, baby.

I bought some stuff at the store I thought was really healthy. Turns out I didn't read the label well enough and it's just blue food coloring, raspberry flavoring, TONS of sugar, and water. But it is water...so that has to count for something. Aside from that, it tastes good and it's healthier for me than Pepsi! :)

>And brush your hair. It helps when you're sick. (And yes, even I do it!)

Want to know something? I haven't showered in 3 days. Yes, that's right, 3! I have felt so nasty and awful these past few days that I just couldn't convince myself to stand around in water for that long. But, I am washing my towels as I write this, so I am GOING to take one today whether I feel like it or not.

>I miss you babe.
I miss you too!!

Hope to hear from you soon if you feel like writing!
Elle
