I did get to go to the conference and it was amazing. He was the key note. He talked about the idea of separating complex from complicated...as in, rocket science is complicated but development is complex. So we might think we understand it but there are so many influences on the psyche -- complex influences -- that treatment needs to be equally complex. Not complicated -- complex. He talked a lot about influences on the brain and how powerful emotional merging is and how healing. I think you could hear a pin drop at times! And while I think he might be an amazing analyst, he radiates confidence and power, I couldn't help but think I was glad I had mine, he "feels" more comfortable and besides I like not having to share him with the multitudes.
My husband is still in the hospital and expected to stay there at least until Saturday. He is grumpy and wants to come home. This has been the topic of therapy over the past few days. How do I give him the room he needs to be angry without it triggering me off the deep end again? And why do I think it is all my responsibility? *sigh*
