I know I'm being sensitive, but...

Posted by lucie lu on September 1, 2008, at 14:21:06

I havent been posting lately because while my T is away, I have been trying to put aside therapy and related issues for a while and focus more on my civilian life and recovery. I didnt expect a bandwagon when I posted again recently, prompted by concerns about Dinah and Gustav (thank you, Dinah, for your greeting; back at you). But what did make me uncomfortable and even a bit hurt, was Lemonaide's posts when Tamar came on. I can see shes an old and apparently good friend, Lemonaide. But it's not like I have never posted you either, and your response seemed a little insensitive. Imagine if you and another person happen to arrive at someones doorstep at the same time and the other person is greeted effusively, leaving you to feel like the newspaper someone forgot to pick up?

You are an expressive poster, Lemonaide, and I admire your exuberance. I'm sure you meant nothing more than a hearty welcome to a friend. You have been on the board for a long time, whereas I am still new. I know I can be overly sensitive. I know that no one can trigger something in me that wasnt already there and, as much as I don't like these feelings, I own them. I feel uncomfortable expressing these feelings, too. After 40 years (beyond school), youd think Id be over this! But after thinking about it, I thought it would be better to be honest and express how I feel. Something to talk about in therapy tomorrow when my T is back, I guess.
