If you read yesterdays post we have some news… today is The Body’s 53rd birthday and it is a very good day. We had our therapist appointment and after a long talk and explanations we decided we do not need a different therapist. We put a plan in place and we, The Collective, are good with it. A very good and settling thing. 🙂
The best gift we got was actually the night we were in the ER psych ward when our niece, sisters and brother-in-law came to see us. It made all the difference in the world and it was a total surprise to us. If it weren’t for them we would be spending our birthday in the psych ward. (Paws-ing for now because Coco came to visit us and is sitting on the mouse… lol kind of hard to do this with the mouse roaming the screen… I think she decided to come down and wish us a Happy Birthday lol)
She stayed there for about 20 minutes lol I wasn’t sure what if anything would happen to this post… luckily nothing bad that couldn’t be fixed.. I love that little cat! Anyway back to the post because I want to sit and relax until Marshall gets home and we can watch SOA. So the therapy session went well, for the first time The Watcher came out for most of the session with Big Mama in the background. Then everyone started listening which was another good thing. We feel more settled and that was probably already said but bears repeating. 🙂 Still having panic attacks and the anxiety but the depression is a bit better seeing the dark ones (DieAnne especially) are soothed and felt heard. One thing I forgot to mention yesterday was that Lips also played a part in this, Thursday evening he came over to us gave us a hug and said if we need to go get help go, there is nothing wrong with that, if we can’t take care of ourselves we are no good to anyone. It was a very hard thing to do as we are not into asking for help, it is not in our nature. Until now.
Some more good news, because of the dizzy spells we have on a daily basis we had fallen about 2 months ago and messed up our right foot, we’ve been in a walking boot now for just over 7 weeks, finally had an MRI to rule out a stress fracture (no fracture YAY!) and they just found swelling meaning we strained/sprained a funny shaped muscle on the bottom of our foot. One more week in the boot and Monday we can go to sneakers!!! The doctor prescribed a new anti inflammatory med and we are still using the anti inflammatory cream and are doing better. There is less pain today and we are so looking forward to having the same footwear on both feet lol. We go back in a month which means we also get to spend time with Celine again. 🙂
I’m just thankful that all my alters are settled and pretty quiet and just enjoying the rest of the day after we got everything done earlier. We are definitely blessed.
Ok, time for dinner and some tv… and hoping to get to see some wild weather tonight!! It’s in the forecast for us!!
