A key word that you will see:

Fragmentation: a mental process where a person becomes intensely emotionally focused on one aspect of themselves, such as “I am angry” or “no one loves me,” to the point where all thoughts, feelings and behavior demonstrate this emotional state, in which, the person does not or is unable to take into account the reality of their environment, others or themselves and their resources. This is a term that my therapist and I use and is on the continuum of dissociation.

Clueless,

All such good news (except for the tired part and a little rest will hopefully fix that)!

Take care and come back when you are ready and rested.

Hugs,
Tamara

@immi. Thanks for you support. Yes, it is great news.

@ash. Hip, Hip...

@precious rock. Yea, lets talk about the good stuff. Earrings that I have been eyeing for quite some time.

@tamara. As always, you are such a place of warmth and tenderness for me. I have the depression tiredness underneath the discomfort/surgery tiredness and I can't sleep very well. Maybe, I will take the Vicodin in the evening...it gets me a bit more sleep. Thanks.
