Happy Monday and new time, man I love this new time change. As you know I’m in the bed before 6 anyway, so being dark early is right up my alley. lol Well today was a long but productive day, my Monday started off pretty good. I felt rested and got up with no problem at all. Today was the day I take dad to run his errands, and gives him a chance to ride in the car for a bit. Since he has a new girlfriend at his place, they seem to get out a little more together. She’s a nurse, so she is able to help him walk and be careful. Also today was the first day of my new coping skills class, and therapy day. I wasn’t really ready for therapy today, but glad I stayed the whole hour. Which brings me to why I’m thankful today, I’m more than thankful for my therapy sessions. I find so much relief in going, I had something bothering me yesterday and she just brought it out of me. I cried just a little, not sad tears, but tears of ‘yes that’s it’!! I feel like my thoughts are so clear when I’m with her, I mean I feel like she has been knowing me for years. I wonder if we are supposed to be kind of cool with each other? Today she told me something personal about her daughter and I felt like we were best buds. Just wondering if that’s ok? If it’s not, oh well! I couldn’t be more thankful for her. She sees the old fabulous, courageous, pretty, and diva I use to be. She sees me, not just my illness. I mean I feel like my old self, with a new brain when I’m there with her. So once again, who said therapy was bad for ya!? Hope this week is starting off great for you all, chat soon….
