cautiously hopeful

so, here i am, two hours post meeting therapist number 10.

the days before meeting a new therapist, i'm always a mess. i hate first sessions, and it shows. all this history review and explaining why i was one diagnosed with some psycho-something or another based on some garbage i made up when i was ten. explaining why i left therapists 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, and 9. i hate the anticipation, and i hate the actual meeting.

so considering what this meeting was all about...i'm cautiously hopeful. she seems pretty sweet, she has a sense of humor. she's goal oriented. so it might work.

except that she banned practically my entire vocabulary, starting next week. no "i dunno"s, no "whatever", and no shrugging shoulders. maybe i'll take her up on her offer of dimmed lights...


  1. no "i dunno"s, no "whatever", and no shrugging shoulders

    WoW! I like her already!

  2. Yup! I second *me*....
    Sounds good to me...

    Thumbs up!!!!


  3. *me*-you would. hello, i dunno how i'm gonna manage to talk to her without these stuff! *shrugs* whatever.

    ~tova-yeah, you would too.

    it's a conspiracy, i tell you, a conspiracy!

  4. Thought Ema would agree with you that "I dunno"s and "whatever" are a mainstay of a vocabulary I also am also going to side with the T on this one. I hope you don't look at this as a conspiracy against you :).

    I really hope she works out. May you be voche to a personal geula really soon.

    Kol Tuv,

  5. Lol, she sounds really good. I hope it lasts!

  6. aba-of course it's a conspiracy! :D everything is! but i'll deal with it. let's just hope she doesn't ban whatever i come up with as a replacement. i hope so too...amen!!

    half-she is really good. i think. hope so too...cautiously though. very, very cautiously.

  7. Yep LS, it's all one big conspiracy!! :-)

    (hahaha I'm gonna tell your therapist on you! :-p)


c'mon, i know you're reading this! what do you think?
