H Rose, It's nice to talk with you. It always brightens my day.I hope the new carer likes sweets and a view of the sea too. You would be missing out on that special time to look forward to if she doesn't want to relax a bit!I can understand that it is hard to go back to see the place where you struggled last year. The good and the bad. I think people understand, though. If you did go back, everyone knows that you would be fine. There isn't a person who hasn't had a rough time of it one time or another. Plus you are a good nurse and valuable employee. I think you are right, it's probably better to wait until you are settled with your personal life before you decide what to do. It is a dilemma to get back before your registration expires but I think you will find your way. You are so changed from last year, coping in a much different way having been through so much and survived. You are strong and capable. Plus, I suspect a bit of the confident, smiling H Rose is more a part of you than you realize.It is interesting that you talked yesterday about how much you used the little girl you were as an example of how not to parent. And you also feel that you are the opposite of your mother with your kids, being permissive and not overbearing. I wonder how much of your mother's influence is in your parenting style. It could be that she influenced you more than you feel she did.I hope all goes well with K tonight. It is ok to set limits. Maybe at the beginning you can tell her that you need to tend to Poppy and only have X amount of time. See if that works.If I don't get to talk with you, have a good night. Sleep well, H Rose!Katex
That is a very scary situation with Dave and Sam. I understand your fear that Sam might be selling. It is a short step from using to selling as I have seen when I was a Drug and Alcohol counselor. I don't want to scare you, only validate that you have reason to be concerned.
I did not know you felt like cutting. You must be in a lot of pain. Can we talk more about it tomorrow on the new thread? I want to hear how you are feeling and what you feel may be hurting you.
How did it go with K? Were you able to set a time limit like you wanted to?
Good night, H Rose! You are in my thoughts, always.
PS I just realized that I clicked answer again instead of info. Force of habit! Just ignore it, S'il vous plaît?
Sounds like a tough session. You did talk about a lot of heavy duty topics. You must have been tired after that!
I'm heading over to the new thread to talk with you there.
I remembered to push info this time! :)
