An uplifting appointment with Dr. barry

we had a great apt with dr. barry today. it was light. we did not really discuss anything too heavy. we sort of talked about the thing we were discussing last week, about our relationship with dr. barry and the one with eileen being so similar, she asked me if the confusion had lifted and lessened, and yes it has. rationally i know the relationships arent the same, sometimes though the lines get a little bit blurred and things get fuzzy and i kind of get lost and lose my sense of safety.
we talked about the assessment i am having tomorrow with the respite co-ordinator. she said its positive that it is happening. i agree.
we talked about my mom. i was telling her how my mom does stuff for me, like things around the house, and calling me several times a day to check up on me. she said my mom shows she cares in her behaviours, in the things that she does, she needs to be doing something tangible to feel useful. i hadnt noticed that before. but its true. she cant be there emotionally for me but she is there for me in other ways. and thats good enough i guess.
she told me she might bring a student in on wednesday. the student was there today but she said she asked her to sit out because she felt it was too soon after our rupture to bring a student in to the room. i appreciate that she did not bring her in today.
all in all it was a good appointment. it was a little shorter than usual. but she is seeing us twice a week, so thats probably why, she didnt rush me or anything though, quite the opposite actually.

  1. I’m loving all these good news! 🙂
    My mom is amazing but she’ll NEVER show any emotion. It’s like she’s made of frozen iron. But she’s always there to show tough love 😀 It’s hard to explain. I’m glad you could see that your mom cares about you 🙂
