It's pretty lovely. It's interesting, my friend, who's very supportive of therapy and my relationship with my T generally said "maybe this was a lesson for you to learn how to not need her" or something like that. And I thought about the conversation T and I had just before she left, how it's crazy what a big deal it felt like for her to leave, but it was only for a week. She said "well WIP... mom's are really important". I thought of that when my friend said what she said... if I had talked about wanting to talk to my mom/connect with my mom after something traumatic like that happened... but she was out of the country or something and couldn't be reached. If that had been the case, nobody would have said, well, now you know that you don't need your mom. Or this is teaching you to not need her. Interesting...

But yes, scaffolding down, window now repaired and this weekend I'm going to get thick velvety, non-shadowing curtains. Flashbacks seem to be lessening, which is good.
