Too much Thinking by Tuesday

Time for early morning yoga today.  YEA!  It's a great way to start the day.  My anxiety levels have been heightened with all of this court business, and the new therapist "hit the nail on the head."  The first male clinician for me to see, he was a breath of fresh air...his analysis is that I made the best decision I could, and due to some legal issues, the courts are forcing me to revisit that decision and second guess myself.  He said I need to stop looking backwards, and simply go forwards - if I see some behavior change on my son's part, try to reconcile, but if I do not, "let it go."  He said he has seen many parents in similar situations, and that, yes, my son needs help, but getting him to a therapist won't make him better unless he wants to be better.  

That setiment will be my aka sana (?) thought for mediation/prayer today.  :D  I feel better already.  :D  :D

Work today, pup training tonight.  It looks like dd is coming home this weekend - she says that "everyone is partying" for the Halloween weekend, and she doesn't want to be around a bunch of drunk/high kids.  :(  I wish she would find some straight friends that she has something in common with instead of coming home, but, hey, I am sure she will find her way at some point and not want to be around me as much, so I will enjoy her company while I can/am able. :)

Karla/Jean - Still having same problems. Can't see any replies other than original post. Also, if I click "Reply", I'm taken to a new page that says "Enter New Comment" but there isn't actually a space for me to do so. I can only reply via "Quick Reply." To fix these issues, I have closed and reopened Chrome, logged out of IV and back in again, and came to the board via the main page instead of my bookmark. Nothing worked. :( I will subscribe to this thread and see what happens. FSN - You are doing wonderfully. You're handling this with grace and healthiness. Be proud of yourself. And how cool that your daughter is coming home to avoid hanging out with drunk and high kids. Good for her. :) I did a kettlebell workout this morning. It was tough but I enjoyed it. Nice to do something different. I have one client and a hair appointment this morning. Tonight, I'm going with OP and two friends to see Paranormal Activity. I really overdid it food-and-beverage-wise over the weekend so I'm doing my best to eat healthfully for the rest of the week.

Hey there Gym,

I just sent you an e-mail and I'm replying to this message so you can see if your e-mail notifications are working.

The reply thing is a known issue and the tech teams are working in it. It doesn't affect everyone and many people are experimenting with different browsers and finding that one might work for viewing replies when the others don't.We do hope to have an update on this situation soon but as of now I have no fix time.

Thank you for being so patient!

Fresh I think that is great advice from the counselor. My sister is dealing with really bad issues with her oldest daughter and the worst part is that the daughter doesn't want to change. She doesn't see anything wrong with her behavior. She says she's just "having fun". Ugg

Good advice from the therapist--something we could all do.  An interesting take is on message boards. I'd read years ago that you should respond to the post and not the poster because if you respond to the poster, you're responding to history that you're both bringing to it.  It's more about debate boards than these support boards.

I had a dentist appointment this morning but did catch spinning at my new pristine Stepford gym.   I caught an insanity like class at my old gym which is too run down. I need a Goldilocks gym.  Wink  I am going to Zumba tonight.

Oh, wait, this just occurred to me and I feel really stupid about it.  CmKarla and karla--are you two different people? I was assuming karla "stepped into" being CM and changed her name when she was playing the CM role. I can't believe this is the first time that I've thought of it, after all these years. Tongue Out

lol Jean, they are both me. I do post in my CM name for "official" things. Every once in a while I'll mess up and post in my regular name something that should have been done in my CM name (especially when I have been replying to a multitude of posts and forget what browser I have open for just my friend posts).

Whew! What a relief. I was wondering if I'd been clueless all along. Embarassed

lol I should not have assumed you girls knew we were the same person. I am going to remember not to post in the daily thread in both names in case new people are here and think I am a nutcase. Tongue Out

I actually think it was obvious which is why I assumed so for so many years. It threw me today when I saw back to back posts from you, one as CM, one as not. It's just me.

Haha, and I just noticed that the title of this thread is "Thinking too much Tuesday..."
