Self care in my field is so important. This is why I only work part time. This allows me to live the balanced life I crave. I am pretty good about not taking problems home. At times, it is difficult to wind down at night, but it is not because I am thinking about specific stories I hear, but more from being ramped up from being fully present in the energy that presents in sessions. If I am stewing on a problem narrative, it is probably when safety issues come up and I am questioning whether I asked all the right questions. I use that stewing to clue me in on what I need to do- which is usually to follow up with a phone call. 25 days ago
Yep, my walks are gonna be on hold. That's okay, I will hopefully work some of that energy off working in my garden. It isn't forever, right Erin? Ya know, every time I go into fairfax it just seems like I am back in the 60's. Time warp zone. Nothing changes. Though I found a fabulous print to hang on my walk in my office, didn't see any furniture at the price I wanted to pay. Oh well, ce la vie! ;o) 28 days ago
Darlin', I am going to need you to help me as much as you can...I need your wisdom, tricks, and whatever I can do to prepare and for you to give me some of your experience with this TPLO surgeries I am going to deal with. Would you be comfortable if I can call you in the next couple of weeks? 33 days ago
Sorry to hear that the appointment didn't go well. Hailey was diagnosed with ADD last night. I'm not sure how to feel about it yet. We decided on no meds at this point. Poor girl is behind in school so we have a lot of work to do! Best of luck to your daughter. I was a horrible teenager. Sounds like she's got good parents so everything will work out eventually.
