Dr. barry says I am fiercely independent

we saw dr barry today. we had a good apt. we chatted and I told her the news about me getting on the independent living skills course. I told her my mom was trying to put obstacles in my way, she wondered why mom was trying to do this.
Is it because she is afraid of losing you?
I am not sure, I said. I dont think so. But its hard to tell really.
Your relationship has grown so much over the last couple of years. Maybe she is fearful of that changing.
Yes, maybe. She did come around eventually to the idea of me doing the course which is good.
Me to dr. barry… I need to do this. I really do. I’m not that independent…
Your fiercely independent! She said. That made me smile.
She believes in me. She sees my determination to do things on my own.
We talked about the did assessment. The funders are almost ready to go ahead with it. The lady whose in charge of funding rang dr. barry. Dr. barry wasnt able to take her call so she is going to ring her back on friday.
She said it looks like it will go ahead soon.
She will have news next week for me.
She’s also going to phone eileen and have a discussion with her about it.
I asked her what exactly she wants out of this reassessment. Guidance, she said. I want to know how the experts are treating did.
I also want to see if there are pharmalogical things regarding your meds that they can suggest.
So its really happening, and soon!
