This Title Intentionally Left Blank

Showed up for my 1:00pm Therapy appoint at 12:45 only to see I got a text on the elevator ride up to her office asking me to come at 1:30 instead.  DOH.  I finally got in to see her at 1:45.  I was there til almost 3pm.  She has a couple new therapeutic toys she had to show me, this weird magnetic clay and her box of sand and collection of stuff.  By stuff I mean toys and figures to use to build how you feel in the box.  She didn’t have a blown mind person, so there was no playing in the sand for me.

This was an unnecessary Therapy session.  Whereas I was mind blown a few days ago and in desperate need of someone else to talk to, today I was mostly calm and collected.  The fireworks that were deciding on my future plans have went off and now is the calm smoky part.  Heck, if she’d seen me yesterday, I was pretty messed up going over my proposed schedule.  <shudder> (Guess I am still a bit messed up about it).  Today we just talked about my plan and she gave some suggestions, most of which I had already thought of.  She is good at her job, she knows when to push and when to not with me, that is what the years I have been seeing her has developed.

She is concerned about my weird sleeping and fired off an email to my shrink asking if he had some other sleep med her could put me on that would keep me asleep for longer than 3 or 4 hours a night.  The concern is that lack of sleep can cause bipolar symptoms… mania.  And we don’t want those.

Oh, I heard back from the admissions people at WGU and my essay passed.  You remember, the one I said I bombed.  LOL.  It was bad.  They must just want the money.  Oh well, I am off to DMACC in 59 days.

I may be adding a Math class to my schedule for summer.  I don’t want to, but if I want to take Calculus next summer, I need to take College Algebra and Trigonometry (YUCK) between now and then.  And then there is also the Statistics class I have to take.  So 4 Math classes and 13 Science classes in 2 or 2 1/2 years.  I need to get on those right away.  YUP YUP

I did some research and found out that DMACC has free tutoring.  I have the feeling that I will be on a first name basis with a bunch of tutors.  That is ok, if you weren’t supposed to use them, they wouldn’t have them.

I read the list of classes I need to take at DMACC.  He said and I quote, “Good luck”.  LOL.  My brother has a way with words sometimes.  I can’t wait to go back there again this summer, it’ll be so nice to see Jim and my Mom.  And my friends who never escaped the Region, and the rest of my family who makes the effort to come see me.  Don’t get me wrong, some of them I go see, but most that I see will be there for my brother’s party.

Which reminds me, any of my friends are welcome to come to my brother’s party.  It’s going to be June 3rd, which is a Saturday.  It’s BYOB but food is covered.  So, think about it and come and eat and hang out with me, so I am not surrounded by my brother’s friends who think I am rude when I don’t speak to them.  Maybe I am?
