You'll quit therapy when you've spent as much on therapy as he has at the emergency room.

I have dreamed about doors like that quite a few times.... usually i am in a long hallway lined with them. One time I was on a ship at sea with many doors.

L didn't like it when I'd say "only a dream".... but honestly as much as I love dream work I think sometimes they really are only dreams.... I dunno....

i think its got to do with the last couple of days thinking what if ending therapy was the right thing as una said a part of me must hve wanted to end. But i didnt want it to end t said it its either stay or go and wouldnt be drawn into any conversations about a break. A big part of me feels he may have been engineering this but i cant see the big picture at the momment and suspect i maybe cherrypicking from my already poor memory.

I must say, "And never the twain shall meet" was an absolutely perfect way to end the previous couch.

The tiny terror (aka my dog) has a way of verbally abusing people until they apologize. It's really embarrassing, but I'm also baffled why other people say sorry when he's the one having an unprovoked conniption of barking. It's so humiliating. Worse, his shrill cries of rage whip up other dogs who are usually very calm. If they are small, they join in and start barking. Large dogs attempt to hurl themselves at the "threat" to protect the little lamb. I am sitting a retriever/chow mix and a boxer who are very friendly dogs, but the way they act when my dog whips them up is insane.

His old bark collar worked pretty well, but it stopped detecting his barks. His new one detects his barks only after the initial volley and isn't very effective. He couldn't care less about the shock. I think I'll try a more expensive training collar next. Can't really afford it, but this issue causes me so much embarrassment on a daily basis. I hate to think about what a bad reputation he must have, and that his behavior is exactly why lots of people dislike chihuahuas (while ignoring all their excellent features).

Trig Re: Couch 194: The Floral Couch

Been in a bad space for a while now and getting worse. Blew up at my sons school just to get blown off... I am not usually the dramatic type but there seems to be no end in sight. My son is getting worse and I just can’t get services. H just doesn’t get it. T is being amaizing and is praying we can get far enough along before I break... I don’t think we are going to make it.
Possible trigger:

I just cannot fathom 24/7 for three months and hubby gone most of the time with a kid that is holding me hostage, assulting me and giving me worse PTSD than my childhood history from hell ever managed to.
I have no kitchen so I can’t eat right and am not eating often... which is exaggerating other health issues. H and my son have just broken me down so far I can’t see any way back up with what little I have left.
