Doing much better. :-) I've been handling all of my emotions very well. At work I do get very angry with some things, but I've done all I could there so now I'm transfering to another department. I still get a little stressed, but not to the point where I feel useless or self-destructive. I don't get as worked up as I used to or as nervous. Yay! :-) Part of the reason why, I admit, is because I'm too physically exhausted, but I have learned ways to cope and think about things differently too.

New Job (sort of)
I have about two more weeks left of this bakery crap. I don't even want to do these two weeks, but at least I'll get the specialist pay. When I transfer to the flow team, I will get paid a little less, but that's fine with me. I can't stand the bakery at this point. How it is set up, how it is run, who runs it, etc. - I can't do it. It's ridiculous. Everyone is asking me when my last day is so I'll pick one: October 17th is my last day. I'll probably start working on the flow team on the 20th. Depends.

I had my initial appointment with my new therapist last Thursday. Everything went smoothly. Driving, she is about 35mins. away from me, but since I don't have a car I had to take a bus and two trains down there. I'm happy that I didn't get lost or ended up being late or anything. Dr. Young was very nice and she asked a lot of good questions. I have an appointment with her this Thursday, and I guess I'll just continue talking about my history of abuse and treatment. In the past when I would go to therapy, I was in distress and very anxious, but now I can just talk about whatever I need to talk about. Plus, the longer you do therapy the easier it gets (at least for me anyways).

I want to participate again, but I can't say that I know what I want to write about. lol I sorta, kinda have an idea, but that's not good enough. I gotta get crackin'. I'd feel left out and disappointed if I didn't participate this year. Last year I did a story about my life and just changed everyone's names and stuff. This year I actually want to write a fiction novel. I guess you can say that I cheated last year, but I swear writing it wasn't easy!

Good for you, on multiple fronts!

Me, too :) . Some of the wariness (they're not going to believe me, no, they'll believe me too much and call the men in the white coats) goes away...

I've been wondering about therapy myself. Not that I think they can tell me anything that I don't already know (one of my majors was psychology) but it would be nice to have someone to listen without judgment or fear of gossip circulating.
