Hi again Jim …. it’s funny, but I forgot a few things to you ….. to swamp him totally, I could give a new doctor all my journals from the passed 12 years …. I believe there’s 20 of them …. that should occupy him/her for awhile.
And, as morbid as this sounds …. at 73, well …… I could “take care of business” myself.

Thank you Lisa …. I appreciate your words of understanding …. you’ve been there.
Well, as I wrote in my last post, my upset has turned into anger, and now this morning it’s more moderated. If he wants me out, so be it, but I won’t start over. Good grief …. I’d be in there for 3 days! Not sure about the meds. yet or where I’ll get them, but I need to see a therapist in order for the Psychiatrist to prescribe Rx’s;
Thanks friend …..

I agree with John ….. Connect has many times being a lifesaver for me. When I thought I was alone – the only one whose ever gone through something ….. another friend (and I do consider them, and you, friends) has had the same thing in their lives. The comfort that brings is undescribable.
Welcome friend,

If I’m remembering correctly, when you go into Mayo Clinic Connect, and click on Groups, there are a lot of pictures with titles underneeth. I think one of them is for skin conditions.

16 hours ago · ~ Anger post ~

I don’t know how many of you saw my post about anger down farther a bit, under Same old – Same old, but I’m wondering if this is a “normal” reaction. The reason I want your input is because it’s the total opposite of the way I normally responded to things like this. I would “sit with it” through the whole holiday, feeling miserable and sad ….. sort of a pity party. And, as you can see, now it’s totally flipped. Good grief ….. what next? Hopefully moderation.

Hi Teresa ….. it’s good to hear from another directionally impaired person …. maybe we should start a group! One strange thing though ….. when I was still married and my then-husband was driving, I absolutely LOVED looking at the map! Nothing particular …. just looking …. sounds nuts, I know, but ….. what can I say?

OK, friends …. here goes. My upset with my therapist has turned into anger. WHY in the name of everything good, did he pick Christmas time to write this to me????? He KNOWS FULL WELL that Christmas is one of my hardest times of the year! Maybe my not being able to come up because of the accident ticked him off ….. he’s human too. Well, I am pissed. (excuse please), and I am asking WHY NOW? I hope he thinks about this sometime in his spare moments and goes, “oops, probably not such a good time for that.” You’re damn right it wasn’t. I know when I finally do see him, we are going to “discuss” this in a very direct, but courteous manner. He’s the one that said “we need to dismantle “good Suzy” and let her “evil twin” come out now and then. He may be sorry he ever did that. No, I won’t be nasty, but I definitely WILL be direct and he WILL know how it made me feel. After that? Who knows.
(sorry for the swearing friends)
