> Just sharing my gut reaction, it sounds a lot like when I was heading towards termination with my T. It just got to a point when I was doing reasonably well, at least that I was doing as much on my own as I was in sessions. It seems. And so far, so good.

Yeah, the thought has occurred to me. Though I know I still get caught up in my head way too much.

> And though I can really understand your worry about fates and all...Katrina was much bigger than one wonderful woman. Just saying.

I know. I think that's one reason why scrupulosity used to be considered a sin. Of course all that damage wouldn't have occurred because I said what I did.

I think it all started when I was little and was angry that my parents wouldn't let me get a collie because we already had a dog. I wanted a collie! Then the dog we had died, which of course I did not want. It was like the traditional genie's wish. I got the collie, but lost my dog.

Since then, I probably remember those times when that did happen, and don't remember the times the fates don't punish me. I've even got a whole set of rules set up in my mind. For example, naturally I tried to use the fates for my own benefit. But they don't act if I really mean what I say. Taking back my words helps. So does qualifying them.

Silly I know. But it seems a small price to pay to not have that guilt.
