Think I am functioning better and pet correlations

Posted by Happyflower on May 12, 2008, at 21:23:25

I have T on Thurs. morning and I haven't seen him for almost 3 weeks. It was hard the first week because he stirred up some stuff. But it seems even though I have a virus, my depression symptoms are decreasing and I am functioning better even being
But now the sh*t will hit me probably this week again. In a way I get that I need to desensitize the bad stuff so I won't be triggered. But for some reason I would like to fake it, and just feel normal for awhile, which this vacation from T has given me. But unfortunately I know all too well that it is just putting a band aid on a cut that needs stitches anyway.
But can I tell you a something, having these new pets somehow give me something to do and it is very satisfying to nurture them and they love me back.
I guess being in T, is a lot like being a new animal in the beginning. It takes patience and kindness before they can trust you. They trust more and more each day, noises scare them less, they have fun playing. Pets can be very healing. But it also is sad because they only live so long, but I guess if you give them the best caring life, when they die, you know you gave them something and they gave you something. Kinda like T, after therapy is over, we part our ways, both sad to go, but knowing things are better(for the T too) because of the relationship.
