Therapy and PTSD Stuff

I haven’t had much to say because I’ve been in holding pattern.  I was in between appointments – I have my first real appointment with the new, more professional therapist today in a couple hours.  I canceled seeing the other one because it was too exhausting to show up and never be sure if she’d be there or not.

And oh, my dears.  You don’t even know the half of it.  If I told you the rest, you’d wonder why I am not calling to have her licence revoked. I kind of wonder that, too, honestly, but I just can’t bring myself to do it.

So…. in the holding pattern I mainly just worked on treading water a little longer each day, and I did.

I’ve had days where I spent hours in the kitchen without breaking a sweat, and I even drove once.  I did that because I thought my son was forming an abscessed tooth and I took all backroads.

 

As it turned out, he was only teething.

He’s sixteen years old, and all his wisdom teeth came in this month.  The dentist said he has three times the normal room for them because he has a strong jawline which the chicks will love (I quote).   So the massively swollen gum at the back which was the reason for my panic is just…. teething.

That’s the way things go.

    Celebrating these victories with you, DHM, and praying for more.

    An observation, too, from my dining room table, over a cup of coffee, a few states removed from you.

    Spending hours in the kitchen without breaking a sweat and driving your son to the dentist doesn’t strike me as just being in a holding pattern. Seems like a Really Big Deal. Just saying…

    Although it was exhausting for you not to know whether you could count on the previous therapist, I know it’s also exhausting to have to start over. I respect and admire you for doing so. So thankful to hear you’ve had some victories in the kitchen and the car in the meantime. As our dear counselor says, “God is making a way for you.”

    My 18-year-old daughter is teething as well. It’s weird to re-visit teething at this stage isn’t it?
