"I am touched that you thought about me, but don't worry." ?????????

You went to sleep clutching your sleeping pills... You say that you are too busy for therapy... You are feeling very hopeless. And when I talk to you, you don't want to talk about you, you only want to talk about me.

Sure. I won't worry.

He is not getting p*ss*d at you. He is being realistic. It **DOESN"T** matter how much work there is to do if you aren't alive to do it. This is a TRUE statement. It is a fact. Facts don't have emotion. He just wants you to see the truth.

You have some really difficult things ahead of you. But I'll tell you the same thing that I just told Dinah. You wouldn't let *us* get away with giving up. You wouldn't let your kids get away with giving up. Don't let yourself get away with it. **I** won't let you get away with giving up.

Your "consider the possibility" goes like this:

Consider the possibility that your life could be different. That change is possible. That the problems that are (I get an image of a (big)lump of Silly Putty plopped on top of you, making you immobile) "covering" you are NOT permanent. That things COULD be different.

If you could see that there is a *possibility* that things could be different in the future, would that be something that might make a difference in your life? Would that be something that might make giving up a bit premature? You don't have to know WHAT would be different, you don't have to understand HOW it could get to be different. All you need to do is to wonder... if something somehow could change, and my life wasn't going to be like this forever, would it be worth sticking around to see what my new life could be?

MY "new" life was worth sticking around for...

I love you,
Falls.
