More hugs for SOLB (())

Thanks SCaz; no demons yet. You guys were right I was honest about being scared about losing control of the demons and she said if I was scared I could sit silently staring into space and she wouldn't mind.

She also said that we didn't have to break 'the rules' she said it was OK if I wasn't allowed to talk about it (but hoped maybe drawing stuff wouldn't be against the rules.)

She was really nice I just found it hard. I always feel like I've picked my foot up to take a step but then can't work out where to put it down again.

I noticed my own prejudice for the first time in ages too ... the lady must be in her mid 70's and I immediately pigeon-holed her as a kindly old lady doing her best instead of respecting her as a professional as I would have done if she was under retirement age. Thankfully I spotted and questioned the prejudice before we'd even sat down but it did me good to remember how easy it is to accidentally discriminate.

All in all I like her, she was very compassionate which is rare in mental health services, and she's clearly very keen to help. I just hate the process of getting i out.

Well done SOLB, you did brilliantly today. How many of us are able to face our much lesser fears, let alone do it with such honesty and insight? When this is all over I hope you're able to write an account of it - maybe even just collate what you've written here? It would be such a massive help to anyone facing a similar situation but who lacks your insight into it. You should be really proud of what you've done today.

Well done SOLB, have a belated hug (()).

Bookie - I've been meaning to give you my top wedding hints:
1. Do not get someone to help you get ready who has a very loose concept of time.
My mother forgot her dress, went off messing up the aisle seating plan, and then disappeared for 45 mins to get herself ready - consequently the flowergirls had to be dressed by my sister-in-law, and nobody thought to change or dress Mini who was distraught and was subsequently dumped on MrKJ in floods of tears.  And, I was 15 mins late getting to the ceremony, which was downstairs from where I was getting ready.
2. If you're going on honeymoon after the wedding and there's anything you take to the wedding which then needs to go in your honeymoon packing - put a note on the top of your bag so you don't forget.  I managed to go away without a hairbrush, soap bag, toothbrush, deodrant, makeup, perfume etc......

I am going out for dinner tomorrow with my mummy friends and we're having fondue, I'm very excited!
