>>>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.

Can I steal part of this? I never thought about taking my Therapist with me (wonder what his wife would say, she is a Therapist too...) and I never let myself wonder past what would be realistic. I was trying to be practical and "make do." I guess the point of all this is to imagine perfection and work towards it to meet your needs.

I hope you are better today. Please call your Therapist, if nothing else than to touch base. The middle of the night lows are the worst, we can deal with our demons (and our mothers) in the sunshine.

It is supposed to be 72 degrees today and sunny. I am so glad! Maybe I should play hooky...
I'd love to know how you are doing. Keep those questions, I'd like to know the answers sometime.
