*huggles all - with the usual addendum*

April - Maybe you can use this to learn how to get the "degree of separation" that you will need for the therapy case-load? It will be easier for you in some respect if you don't know the person, but you are going to have to learn to think of the issues as separate from yourself. I know that isn't easy to do, but if you can't learn to do it, you'll easily find yourself drowning. I don't know the best way to do it - maybe there is someone you can talk to about it? I'm not trying to talk down to you about it here either, just thinking that you will need to make sure that you don't get too emotionally involved so you don't get triggered .... not sure if that makes sense.

A big thanks to all who have offered/given me hugs. And *big hugs* right back at you.

Sorry I'm so crap at supporting right at the moment. I just feel like my entire life has gone down the tubes . . .

it is yucky for me..
and wat u mean by to much

Owen, by too much I meant exercising too much. Doing too much physical activity for what she's been eating. Just wondering... don't want her to strain her body. :(

Kahlia, thanks for the comments. It didn't feel like you were talking down to me at all... I know - well, some PART of me knows - that I will have to distance myself from people somehow... to be clinical about it... but I don't know how to do that without losing empathy. I don't know. Am I making any sense? This definitely could be a learning experience, yes, but in the meantime, it's a weight on my shoulders. And I don't want to admit that to anyone but those here, because it's... well, not something I'd admit to IRL to (m)any people. :( I'll try talking with my NP about it the next time I see her, or I'll text her, or something. I don't know. :-S

I feel awful. Got on WoW for a bit but was too anxious to do much of anything. :( I feel so stupid. And low. And I just want a hot bath... :'(

I'm so pathetic. And I AM a failure... :crying:

xxjuliexx 14-05-2010 01:42 AM

Scarletdreamer 14-05-2010 01:44 AM

Owen I completely understand you thinking girl stuff is yucky, I still have to go through it once a month for the time being, its horrible.

*hugs April* your not a failure.

*hugs everyone who wants hugs*
I feel really ill, stupid side effects of meds.

xxjuliexx 14-05-2010 01:47 AM

xxjuliexx 14-05-2010 01:56 AM

hi oliver

frenchhorn 14-05-2010 02:08 AM

hi Owen, how are you doing? you feeling any better than earlier?

Kahlia1981 14-05-2010 02:09 AM

April: Do you know anyone else who has a MI or who has a family member with a MI or something like that who is working in the psych field? They might be able to guide you without you giving too many details. Like a "how do you manage to stay objective?" type question? I can understand what you mean with the distance ~ empathy. It is possible to distance certain parts of your emotions without distancing yourself completely. It's a skill you'll have to learn at least some part of. And I know where you are coming from.

Kahlia1981 14-05-2010 02:10 AM

*offers everyone hugs*

Sorry it's not more . . . :crying:

Scarletdreamer 14-05-2010 02:11 AM

Thanks for the hugs, Owen. *safe, gentle hugs back*

Oliver, sorry you feel ill. *gentle cuddles* :( Are you off to bed soon? because I know I am... going to take a hot bath now. Am feeling so wound up and stressed... but sleepy at the same time. It's a weird feeling.
