I am such an idiot....

Posted by obsidian on July 22, 2009, at 21:30:13

a complete and utter idiot

I called my therapist while I was high to tell him that I'd been smoking A LOT of pot and I will NOT want to talk about it tomorrow,

and so I said "I am calling you up to tell you this because that is what high people do, they call people up and tell people things they shouldn't say."

I am ridiculous
really

no I don't think you're an idiot. Just hurting and wanted someone to join you and to know how your hurting.

It's ok.

i think you said the right thing and your therapist will agree with you. calling people when you are high is one thing people do and later regret. not exactly the same thing but i once was a bit tipsy at about 4am and was trying to call some guy and instead i dialed my father's phone number and was mortified because he did answer and rather than hang up i started to explain i was trying to reach "jerry" and well...you get the point.

You're not an idiot Obsidian. I think your T will understand. You didn't say anything horrible on the phones. I think a lot of people do stuff like that while intoxicated.

Well, when you think about it...

You did tell your therapist about it, and you did let him viscerally understand the experience.

And like it or not, you gave your therapist an opening to do what you said you don't want to do, but perhaps know you ought to do.

Which isn't really being an idiot at all.

I planted giant figs in my view and in my septic trench, and (as Dostoyevsky would have appreciated) I knew it was wrong at the time and I still did it.

What did he say?

Life is ridiculous, isn't it?

You can imagine it in a Monty Python skit.

I sort of feel like I set myself up for all of this...I knew this would happen. I like smoking pot, but I end up screwing up things in the rest of my life.
