  17. My T is having surgery on Friday and I won't see them again for a month.  Hoping things will be alright for me while I'm on my own.

    I did give them a get well card today during our last session before the surgery, and they really appreciated it.  It made my heart smile.

      MeBeMary

  24. Going to really try to listen to my therapist's advice and limit my time on Facebook.  

    1. CrimsonRegrets

      CrimsonRegrets

      That sounds like a good idea. People on facebook can be really mean and hateful.

    2. snmls

      snmls

      Yeah, it's been really triggering for me lately because of all the hateful things people are saying about stuff going on in the news. 

    3. CrimsonRegrets

      CrimsonRegrets

      Yeah I know. I've seen some hateful things about the me too movement as well and people calling each other morons for just having a different political opinion. It's crazy.

  25. Don't forget to take care of you.
