This group must be on the East coast because I'm coming from the West Coast and must be late to the party. There are a ton of threads where I was the last to post a few days ago, either that or I talk too much. LOL
Last night I a friend came over to talk. She has been my best friend since we were in 9th grade we are totally joined at the hip. I won't go into the details (remember, I talk too much) but at some point in the conversation I realized that I was jealous of her and the group of people that she was talking about. That is SOOOO unlike me. After she left I was feeling really out of sorts and couldn't figure it out. Today I realized what the jealousy was about (not her or the people she was talking about) zipped her off an email and feel amazing and fabulous! All without benefit of my amazing meds which I don't regret using but am glad to be transitioning off of. My therapist says that I am really good at thinking my way through things but skip the id the emotion part. I come from a family of really repressed people but was always the blacksheep with feelings. Well, this is the first time that I know of that I started by identifying the emotion, sorted it all out, fixed it and moved on all by myself.
I'm 5 foot 3, blond and a little chunky. Now that you have that image, imagine me doing cartwheels across the lawn. Yippee!!!
