Hi Racer,

I'm sorry to be action planning for you, especially on such a sensitive topic. That can be so irritating sometimes. I have a friend who always does that, and my reaction is often, "Do you think I haven't thought of these things? This is my own personal problem that is causing me much pain! Do you think I'm not coming up with the obvious solutions myself? What I need here is emotional support!" And then I have to spend extra energy that I don't have saying "Yes, but . . ." to all of her suggestions, which is frustrating for both of us.

Sometimes it seems to me that I have such great ideas (!?!?) that I want to share. But I know that I don't know diddly about your situation. I feel bad that I might have been implying that the way you're coping isn't good enough. Cleaning is a great way of coping! Much better than some other things I can think of. And your mood chart sounds cool, too. And I know you talk about the creative things that you do a lot. Sorry to imply that you weren't being creative enough. I wasn't really thinking that, I just meant to be explaining some things that have helped me.

So, here is your magic emotions replacement key, which is really what you've been wanting:

I made it fancy, just for you. You just hang in there, and don't let me or your mom or anyone else tell you what you need to do. You know better than all of us, and I'm sure you're already trying plenty hard.
