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.

What Happened? YIKES!!!

Argosy University
I scared myself yesterday!!  I'm planning to apply to a couple of universities for a doctorate in clinical psychology.  I had spoken with the Admissions Director last year explaining my situation regarding letters of reference.  As if has been more than 20 years since I graduated from college and I have not been working for 5 years, so for my letters of recommendation, I am losing contact or people have passed away or retired.  She stated that I could start collecting them even though I did not know when I would be applying.  My goal now is to start in Fall 2013.

I had a question, so I called and the NEW director told me that before I even start with my letters of recommendation that I need to meet with her to see if I am even eligible.  She is going to ask question that the previous Director asked me over the telephone.  Without thinking about my being ready to meet with her, I have an appointment on Monday.

I am so anxious and although I do not need to "dress up,"  I still do not think that I have something suitable to wear given my new weight.  All of those negative thought has raised its ugly head.  YIKES!! I have an appointment on Monday after therapy!!!

I wish you the best of luck with the interview. I hope it all goes to plan and you find something to wear that you are comfortable in.

Good luck! I can imagine how nerve-wracking that might be - but having done this once before, I'm sure you can do it again! You know what you want to do and why you want to do it, and you know your own situation - it sounds like the director just wants to know the same. Keep us posted!

Sairs, thank you. I did find something to wear. Actually, two somethings. 2 skirts and a blouse. Thank you.

Sarahlynn, thanks for the encouragement. I will keep you posted.
