Hi Everyone! It's been a very busy week for me. Work has been very difficult on me this week. I have to tell you, I don't have to, but I choose to tell you that even though we aren't supposed to be emotional in the lives of our clients is so difficult to be that objective and hold back our emotions when they are telling you heart wrenching things. I do a good job in that area while I am with them but a couple of times this week after they have left when the session was over I pretty much broke down in tears at my desk. My heart takes over sometimes and I have to let the emotions out.
I am a very emotional person by nature. I don't exactly know why that is. I have been able to not show these emotions in front of the client and I fear someday I won't. We, as therapists, are not supposed to have any emotional attachment to the people who come to pour out their lives to us. To me it is unrealistic unless you are a robot. I swear that in my sessions we end up going through at least two boxes of tissues a week.
My Aunt and Uncle have had a hard week. My Uncle's mother has been in the hospital since Monday and was supposed to be released on Tuesday. I hope so much that things will get back to normal to all of them real soon. It hurts me to see anyone in anguish.
Then there is my friend Jae, not only is her son battling illness, thankfully it is looking better for him, but she is having her own physical problems. I just pray that all these situations will resolve themselves quickly and positively.
I do have some good news to report. My friend Jenna is going to have a baby. I am so excited for her and Tom! You go girlie girl! LOL
I am sure Lisa is happy right now, all plopped down in front of the TV watching her favorite actress Jorja Fox on CSI.
To Brandi, I hope you have fun and a successful flight attendant training.
I wanted to send a special thank you out to my best friend Heather. She sent me a bouquet of the most beautiful flower arrangement you ever saw. That put a big smile on my face when I needed one most! Luv ya H!
To my friend Beverly, can't wait to taste your wonderful quesadilla recipe tomorrow. Don't forget it! LOL
I hope you all have a wonderful Friday. TGIF. Luv ya! TTFN
