The real couch session

I saw my therapist for the first time today (not to be confused with my shrink....few are privileged enough to need both but of course I've always been er, um, special) and I love her! She's awesome. Any chick who gets a tattoo to celebrate her 60th birthday is a rockin' chick in my book. We've been through many of the same experiences in our life and I can tell we see eye to eye on a lot of things. The only word that kept coming to mind after our session was 'smooth'....even the car seemed to drive smoother on the ride home. I felt so calm and purged. It was marvelous.

And she really has a couch! Two actually, a couch and a love seat...they are deliciously fluffy and the atmosphere is like that of a spa, not a stuffy doctor's office. I almost expected someone to come in and start working on my chicken feet and hooker knees while we chatted.

I can tell she is someone I am going to be able to be completely honest with. I need that in my life. And there are demons in me that need to be vomited out and kicked down the drain, even if I have to used a stick to do it....I think she can help me with that. I am very excited about working with her. Now my only problem is childcare for my sessions. Any volunteers??? It's becoming an issue between River having 'parent' activities at school and me seeing a shrink AND a therapist, AND working at the bank AND working at the tavern. I am wearing out my favors with the mother in law......I have to figure out some solutions. That is my current issue to obsess over at the moment.

Let the obsession begin.....

I would LOVE to volunteer, but unfortunately we live worlds away from each other! I'm glad you found someone you can talk to! Good luck!

Can you swing through Alabama on your way to sessions? No? The truck gets about 8 miles to the gallon, so I don't think I could commute to your place...bummer!

LOL seriously, if y'all lived close by, ya know we would be there for ya in a heartbeat. I am sooooooooo glad that you like your therapist, and that she has such a comfortable, homey area for you to chat (purge, rant, whatever.....).

Sounds like you had a good day--yay!

I checked out your stitchery website, then I remembered, "ooooooh, yeahhhhh!" I checked you out last year, and loved your work! Savin' up to get ES something special (shhhhh, it's a secret!)
