I love to take the camp comfort ball and run with it.

Yes indeedy, there is a place for the family and therapy plagued at camp comfort. It's a room in a corner of the house, and it's round, and has a long view. A person can see anyone coming from almost all directions, so there's no sneaking up on you in that room.

When we're at camp, MIL can't say anything to faze us. Why? Because we feel so safe, and loved, and surrounded by like-minded people. We know exactly why she says what she says, and we just feel sorry for her. She's mean? She's critical? She's jealous? Poor MIL. But you can see her coming, and without guilt, snap the lock on the door and turn up the headphones.

My T has had to prove to me again and again that he isn't going to hurt me when I'm in that vulnerable place. The habit of expecting to be hurt can be old and very deep.

Annierose, I do think it has to be difficult sometimes. It's slogging through the caca that makes us better, isn't it?

I wish you could all sit here with me and watch my cats wrestle. They are so funny, and without complication. They bite each other, pin one another down, lick each other for a while, then leap away and pounce. They understand each other perfectly, and are a riot to watch.

Aren't family visits stressful? My entire family wants to come to visit for my birthday, and I don't know what to do...
