MESSED UP: GREASY PLATES, HURT FEELINGS, AND CLEANING UP YOUR COMMUNICATION ACT
Moving on after a fight without trying to resolve the issue, is like washing greasy plates with water rather than soap, patting the plates dry, putting them away, and then finding, when you take the plates out, that they’re still coated with grease.

I experience it that way. There is the void from the emotional neglect, the fantasy of someone filling it, the obsessions about the relationship with that someone which acts to fill the hole, compulsions making sure the relationship is still there, shoe isn’t dropping…
Not sure where to turn. My husband, only age 66, has officially been diagnosed with early Alzheimers. We’ve been seeing changes over the last 2 years with memory and speech. But now it’s official.

these are all so so relatable and I feel so much less alone! Wow.
… You wrote down a whole list of things to discuss and then in session are too into one topic to go through half the things
…You wait all week for your session and then when it’s over you want to go back and wait all over again
…You keep checking your texts to see if your therapi…Read More
Perlita, this so resonates!
I’m forever searching in books for that answer that will finally relieve me of this unrelenting ache.
It’s so hard to face that the work is so, so slow and so hard and there’s no way around it. <3
