Why dont you just hold your nose and slide down in the bathtub and dunk your head under? Why you always got to make things so complicated?

What about one of these put in your shower? Robot Check

Robot Check
Ooh, that first one might work and would definitely fit in my shower.

In related news, I need to stop cursing so much.
I tell myself that every time I curse and my toddler repeats it. She's in speech therapy but of course those words are clear as day.

I am getting frustrated at myself and at H over our whole situation. He still hasn't returned our kids' birth certificates or social security cards to me in the 2 weeks I've been home. He says he forgets to bring them over when he stops by, but my son said he had them in his car today with him. I asked him to bring them inside and he took off. I don't know why I'm getting so upset over it and wondering if I'm making a bigger deal out of it than it really is. Yet I have been angry about it and feel like he's lying to me or using it as bait for something to get back at me for reporting him to the police.

He asked to try marriage therapy again so we're meeting with a T on Friday virtually. I'm not hopeful that it'll work since the last 2 times we tried were a bust.

I'm hurt and upset about all of this. I really don't know how I'm still going and haven't called it quits yet between this and covid.

I think this is why I always wanted a child. To witness the switches turning on and seeing the kind of person they become. This is so sweet. I wish I had made different choices in life so I could witness this myself.

Hey couch.

We're on lockdown. Government said therapy isn't essential, but haircuts are. Psychological Society appealed, some therapy can now still be done face to face as some clients are too high risk for telehealth. Eg suicidal, self harming, abusive household, can't benefit from telehealth.

T is trying to secure that for our clinic so she can see me and others who need it face to face. I really can't risk telehealth, I can't have my parents find out. She emailed me to let me know. I said I know her advocacy is thankless sbd tough and that I really appreciate her.

Of course we'll wear masks etc. I'm afraid that somehow I'll catch the virus, become an asymptomatic carrier and infect her and others.

Tonight I need to try to sneak out to get my psych meds refilled at my mental health GP. Life is exhausting with my parents around in the flat.
