Dinah, it was SO POSITIVE. She is wonderful, and I must have been fuzzy headed that first time I saw her once over 5 years ago!

Isn't it funny how you just click with some people? She didn't make me feel uncomfortable at all. I didn't want to leave the office. The 50 minutes felt like 5! She is warm, engaging, and so understanding. Maybe I should've seen a woman from the start with this social anxiety and everything else. I've always felt like I connected better with men, but now that I'm getting older, maybe that's not so true anymore. Who knows?

I get to go tomorrow for my second session. I typed a little profile of my troubles so maybe she can get more insight. I hope she doesn't mind!

How is everything with you? Are you finding a suitable diet?
I just bought the Atkins Diet book (mostly out of curiousity and maybe hoping to lose those 10-15 lb.) It is interesting that he makes claims that the diet is beneficial for stabilizing insulin levels. He really keeps his diet free from those starchy simple carbs, especially sugar.
For the last 3 days I've been doing a modified version, and although I feel a bit sluggish, in some ways I feel better.
I've heard by so many how unhealthy this diet is, which is why I'd never follow it 100%.
I do like philosophy on paying attention to the glycemic index of foods.
