H Rose (or Ms. Wright ; )
It's good that you got your work done with Alexis and over with. And you set boundaries with the amount of work you can do with her. You have a full plate already and don't need to talk more on until you feel ready.
I do recall you talking about the numbers you had for emergencies and other contacts. There was a time you were collecting a lot of them! It's good that you get them all sorted so if you do need to call someone, you are not overwhelmed.
The pattern changing course sounds very appealing. It is something that is specific to abusive situations, which along with the support you would get and being with others who are in the same type of situation would help a lot. And the topics they cover are at the heart of the abusive situation. I hope that you are able to find a way to join the group. Let me know how it goes.
that Mark is still bothering you. He reminds me of Dave, not respecting boundaries. It is not something you need to have to deal with right now. And if Mark really cared about you, he would not want to add
to your stress. He would want you to be happy.
not know that about AA Milne's granddaughter. I will have to take a peek myself to see what I find. And also take a look for that Hilary girl you mentioned too.... :)
I won't be on JA most of the day tomorrow (much running to do). I will check in during the morning and later in the evening. I hope your day goes well. You have K tomorrow, right?
Good night, H Rose! Sleep well.
