Therapy Tuesday

8:55 AM Edit This 18 Comments »
People? I'm getting closer to graduating to every other week therapy. Progress has been made. Because I do things like "make good choices" and "appear to be fairly confident in my decision making skills" and I've had "growth in the areas of setting boundaries and making my wants and needs known." In other words, I'm not insane anymore. I no longer rant and rave that the whole world is wrong and mean and scary. I'm also no longer demanding that other people make all my decisions for me because I'm not capable, leading me to then blame everyone and his dog for the decisions they made for me because I'm not happy with how things turned out. I no longer have given my will and life over to the care of the professionals I pay to take care of me. And that? That is a splendid and wonderful thing.

So, I was thinking that in celebration, I might just make a whole bunch of bad decisions. No? Hrmph. I guess I'll just keep doing what I'm doing now. Because I'm pretty damn happy and content anymore. And the dead guy can just go be dead because I'm living the life I've always wanted today. And if he were alive, I don't think he would fit into my picture of health and joy.

So there.

I think that's the ultimate kind of closure. That even if *he* were alive, you have done things in your life to the point where he just might not fit into it anymore. Wow, that's a huge realization. Definitely worthy of moving towards every other week therapy!

Don't underestimate blaming dogs. I mean, sometimes they are at fault.

Ha! Enjoy!

Twinkie said...

I think to celebrate you should ask us all what to do, then when that turns to shit you can blame us all.

Oh wait..

No. Never mind!

Keep doing what you're doing. GREAT JOB! Whooo hooooo!

Woooo! Congratulations! That's excellent news. I remember the good feeling of cutting back on therapy hours. It's like a big, fresh breath of freedom.

Wonderful! But...

"Because I'm pretty damn happy and content anymore." I just don't get the 'anymore' in that sentence. This isn't the first time I've seen that. Anymore usually denotes a negative, as in 'any longer'. I mean, I think you want to continue being this way in the future, right?

Sorry, done with my silly rant.

I can't believe I'm commenting so late and still no one has said, "Party like it's your birthday."

Big congrats!

Titania said...

Fantastic!! Congratulations. This is great news...

P.S. *my* dogs are angels, they are not to be blamed for anything... well, maybe the magazine Rack Earthquake ate a week ago.

You are well. I declare it to be so.
Now go and be happy and sad and make good choices and bad ones and cry and giggle and have this life you made!
much love from Vermont....
