She’s impressed with me…

dr. barry sat opposite me. we were chatting about the recent therapy break. then we got on to chatting about my appointments with her being spaced out now, two weeks apart.

She spoke to me in that kind, gentle voice she sometimes uses.


I’m impressed with how your handling things, carol anne

A year ago you would have been in a crisis at the very thought of spacing out our appointments. Look how far you’ve come? I’m so impressed with you.

Yeah, I’m impressed too, I said.

I never thought I’d be able to do it, I never thought I could go longer than a week between apts.

Just goes to show I must be getting better? Right?

Right! You are!


Sooo proud of myself, I thought. And then, and then, she actually hugged me, and said..

Carol anne I am so proud of you!

I could have cried. I made her proud of me!

She said it! I could have wept!
