Camp Comfort

Posted by fallsfall on July 22, 2005, at 10:57:40

I'll be at Camp Comfort for the next two weeks. Who will be there with me? AnnieRose, you can come for these last 5 days. Dinah, you can come even though your therapist isn't on vacation. Daisy, you could come and then maybe you wouldn't feel so alone. Who else has a therapist on vacation?

Last session we talked about how inadequate I am when it comes to vacations. I like to do nothing. He was trying to convince me that that was OK. And encouraging me to do things in the next two weeks that I don't usually do (i.e. read adult fiction).

Today he wore a bowtie!!! I know he is sailing (on the ocean) for one of the two weeks, and doing things around his house for the other. I asked which week he was sailing, so I could watch out for hurricanes. He said that he would have plenty of warning and would come to shore if there was bad weather. I did mention to him that people here were concerned for their therapists who were on vacation when the bombs went off in London.

2 years ago he gave me his cell phone number. He isn't always in range (I guess some parts of the ocean don't have coverage... go figure!), but he says that if I call he will call back when he does have coverage (within a few days). But I lost his cell phone number. I can't imagine how I could lose something as important as that. I struggled through the session trying to decide if I should ask for the number again. I decided I wouldn't ask for it. I think I'll be OK. But at the very end he said "You have my cell phone number, right?" and I said "I've lost it". So he wrote it down for me. That meant a lot.

I think I'll be OK for two weeks. I'll be really glad when he comes back, though. I don't want to quit! I just hope I can tolerate his well deserved vacation.
