Yesterday I had a really bad mental/emotional breakdown. But I had the sense to take a step back, notice my triggers, and called my therapist. She helped me problem solve, then gave me her colleague's number (the other group leader, that is), and her own cell number and said that if I need anything and she's not in the office, then I can call her. I thanked her endlessly, saying that I wasn't originally going to call her office but I figured that'd be the best thing for me to do.
I don't mean to boast and I'm not sure how much many of you newer people here know me, but if you do...this is like moving a mountain. I'm so proud I used my best judgments and I feel like I've come a long way. I know I still have a long way to go, but I have moved and advanced.
I'm so proud.
When I had called her, my urges were skyrocketing, but I was able to handle the rest of the evening safely and wisely because of the problem solving she and I did.
