« we missed it | Main | a weekend of waiting »

March 27, 2006



waiting, waiting, waiting, it seems that is all we ever do!

you reminded me that i need to make an appointment to see my therapist too....

i hope your alone time is nice. how long will john be gone?


Sounds like you had an intense session. I definitely had my sobbing moments during a couple therapy sessions, to the point where I just brought my own kleenex because I knew I'd use up the therapist's!

I'm glad you're giving yourself some quiet time to mentally prepare for your treatment cycle. But don't be too worried about feeling too anxious or too hopeful. It can't be helped, no matter how much you try to prepare yourself, and that's completely okay.

Ah yes, the waiting totally sucks...sorry I haven't been around much lately, but I am now finally caught up. I'm sorry about the bad timing, and the sadness tied to your birthday, but hope you were able to enjoy the day nonetheless. Belated Birthday Greetings!

sorry to hear about the heavy session, but it was probably good to let it out. Bring your own box of Kleenex nex time :-)

It's so good to read that you are feeling hopeful and that you are comfortable with and happy about the good new RE. That is so important. the whole thing is a roller coaster...ups and downs are normal, but it is good that you fee better prepared for them to happen!

I must say I am a bit envious of your quiet time. I need that too. Once or twice per year I send the Better Half away for a weekend, to be just by myself. I do not answer the phone or do anything...just think, assess, and plan for the future. It has been a long time I did that :-S...and it will have to wait until after the wedding.

Take care!



Dear Nikole, thanks so much for checking up on me -- I have been in a funk recently. I'm so sorry about the eruption at the therapist's office, but I hope it was cathartic and helped a lot of things get closer to being sorted out. And you're right, IF touches so many central things that it hurts like the dickens.

I'm glad you've got some alone time coming up, and that you are using it to create some calm space for yourself. Just make sure you have a back-up plan too, in case you should feel down. It's always good to have supportive friends waiting in the wings.
