Well, I'm a little late, but that is because I was on vacation - because my therapist is on vacation.

> When did T leave on vaca?
I saw him last on 7/23

> When is T coming back?
I see him on 8/9 - Wow - that's day after tomorrow!

> What coping strategies will you use?
I saw my pdoc during the first week he was gone, and went on vacation myself the second week.

> List one good thing about your T being gone:
I could go to my parents' cottage on the lake without missing any therapy appointments.

> List the worst thing about your T being gone:
I need him.

> How are you doing right now?
I'll make it until Monday. Then I will completely fall apart in his office. I thought I was going to "fragment" during the first week. I had to stop driving because I wasn't driving safely (no concentration). I've been taking extra meds (Ativan, for sleep and also during the day, and Ritalin to try to help the driving - not particularly successful). I had a horrible nightmare this past week. I had to deal with my parents for 2 days. My 16 year old was totally "bored" the whole vacation - I would have been too, if I had refused to do as many things as she did. I'm completely exhausted now. The good thing is my 21 year old wanted to cuddle a lot this week (that was heaven).

35 1/2 hours until I see him. He actually may be home now!
