I will save the questions until I need a distraction, thats a really good idea Daisy! :) Thanks.
About your homework...hmm I will describe what I think a safe place feels like:

My safe place isn't going to be realistic. It won't be a room or anything like that. I have to say I imagine myself on a tropical island where the sand is really warm. My grandma is there and so is my therapist. It's safe there because there isn't anything that could possibly make me upset and even if there was, my grandma and T are there to help. And...now I'll be realistic.

A safe place I imagine would be living with my grandma. She seems to put me at ease. I don't feel constantly afraid or anxious when I'm around her. She seems to take things in stride. When she's worried or upset about something she's open and she says exactly how she feels. When I try to help her out, she doesn't discount my advice and seems to genuinely appreciate it. She also doesn't get upset if I talk about my feelings. Anyway, me and her would do a lot of cooking all day and watch tv together and do our grocery shopping together. Simple things with her make me feel safe. (I guess I'm still not being very realistic am I!).

The last time I felt really safe was about 5 years ago. My best friend had such a stable family. I loved her mother so much (her mother is deceased now due to cancer). But I remember that I loved being there because things were calm, even fights and arguments were discussed rationally and calmly. No one yelled and screamed and said mean things.
