Default Couch 193: The Aurora Borealis Couch

Welcome to the couch, old and new! A place to hang out - sometimes you get immediate feedback, sometimes you don't.

Shouting, "Cool Whip" tends to bring others out from between the cushions if you're feeling lonely.

This is a chatty thread. All are welcome. We're kind of psychologically oriented, sometimes. We try to be supportive. At times we discuss what that means.

It’s a place to plop down on the couch when you come home from work or wherever, or wake up in the middle of the night, or check in at lunch, rant a bit or not, and be among friends.

We advise you not to drink or drug and text your therapist ("T") - we speak from experience.

Sometimes the thread moves fast and you might get overlooked; sometimes it moves slowly and all you hear are crickets. Sometimes you get hugged or thanked pages later. So if it's a bigger question, you might want to start a new thread.

Grab a cushion, a spot on the floor, or an armchair in the corner and make yourselves comfy!


The Aurora Borealis also known as the northern lights are something I want to see someday. Plus I like to think of everyone on the couch as a light to someone else.

The cure is to see your t as a human. I think you try, with the little prince books. You say, this is the true me (i.e., the book). But just as the little prince must return to his planet, you must be present in session.

I disagree with CE. A gift is a bribe, its IN STEAD of love.


We did have this moment where I said I was my father's daughter, that he was the most important person to me at the moment.( to which he replied that was the most real thing I've said in weeks). I said he couldn't see the real me, but then I don't know the real me. He said the way he behaved was because he cared about me. That he didn't need all the extra stuff. I reacted the way I did because I felt rejected, but now I think that in a way he could have taken advantage of me but didn't,

Can you break it down? What's the reason for the anger?

ETA feels like I have a big neon sign flashing the words MENTALLY ILL above my head today.


Are you part of a team or is it a solo presentation?

I did end up going to the study group, and I left at 6.30pm. It's good in a way, but they stop every 10 seconds to ask questions to make sure it's crystal clear, but it takes longer. I'm going to just work on my own tomorrow, but have this fear of missing out. (like Walgreen's in the Theranos scandal).

About a 30 minute solo presentation then Q & A. I get terrible anxiety when I have to do these things. Blushing and shaking and stuttering and all that. I've tried different ways of preparing/presenting and nothing helps.
