Hey MLS,
Thanks for your kind words. The migraine is gone. How was your first day? I hope everything went well for you. What type of work do you do? My background is in psych. but I haven't worked in the field for quite a few years because of my health. At times, I would work 70-80hrs/wk. I've been on disability for a little over a year. I own my house but I can't do any of the things I used to enjoy doing (mow the grass, plant flowers, paint, etc.) I used to read one book after another but due to my latest DX of attention deficit D/O, it's rare that I can concentrate long enough to read anything. Fortunately, my T put me on Ritalin and I have been able to read a few books recently. With nothing to occupy my mind, all I do is think and I think you already know what or who I think about. I see her on Friday. I only see her once every 3-4 weeks. I could see her more often if I needed to but I try not to. I think this would only make me more dependent on her and I am trying to avoid that at all cost. Losing touch with her last year is what brought up all of these thoughts and feelings I am trying to deal with now. I always look forward to seeing her but I dread the drive. I live in a very small town and she works out of a very big city hospital. What should be a 45 minute drive has been taking me 1-2 hrs. There has been major road construction going on for a year and I think it's supposed to last for at least another year. She always gives me her last appointment of the day so that it's o.k. if we run over but that also means I'm leaving her office right at the peak of rush hour. If there is an accident, traffic backs up for miles. I lived in the city for about 6 years and I know a lot of alternate routes but they all have their disadvantages. The one with all of the construction is the most direct. The on ramp to the highway is just a few miles from my house and her office is right off of an exit ramp. Oh well, she's worth it. I've been driving at least an hour each way to see her for 5 yrs. so I'm used to it. Well, I didn't mean for this to turn in to my autobiography, so I'll end for now. Write when you can. HUGS
OH!!! There is something I forgot to tell you. I love Dancing with the Stars and Jane!!! She is so talented. I was so relieved (for you) when they put her through this week right at the beginning of the show so you weren't agonizing the entire hour.
