Default Couch 140: Knocking pans

Welcome to the couch, old and new! A place to hang out - sometimes you get immediate feedback, sometimes you don't.

---------

Shouting, "Cool Whip" tends to bring others out from between the cushions if you're feeling lonely.

This is a chatty thread. All are welcome. We're kind of psychologically oriented, sometimes. We try to be supportive. At times we discuss what that means.

It’s a place to plop down on the couch when you come home from work or wherever, or wake up in the middle of the night, or check in at lunch, rant a bit or not, and be among friends.

We advise you not to drink or drug and text your therapist ("t") - we speak from experience...

Sometimes the thread moves fast and you might get overlooked; sometimes it moves slowly and all you hear are crickets. Sometimes you get hugged or thanked pages later. So if it's a bigger question, you might want to start a new thread.

Navajo Rabbit = Gah!

Grab a cushion and make yourselves comfy!

For some reason, your couch title makes me chuckle!

Morning, Demunie....nicely done!

I can't remember the last time I woke up and felt like I'd slept. Weird state to be in. Mind you, this persistent sense of disconnection from my body is bugging me most. They're my hands, I should know what they're doing...but pottery, playing guitar...none of it feels connected to me at the moment.

Awful state to be in... I hope it gets better soon... Do you know what triggered that sense of disconnection?

Not sure. It seems to happen when I get too far into my head...and that's happening quite a bit at the moment. Luckily, I'll see R next Thursday. Will probably mention it, although our focus for the session was to be somewhat different.

Default Couch 140: Knocking pans

Damn... I forgot to hand in an assignment. I did everything and I could have sworn I handed it in, but apparently I didn't. How can I be that stupid?

You're not stupid. It slipped your mind and you forgot. Probably because you've stuff going on. It's OK and normal to forget important stuff sometimes.

Can you still hand it in late? When I did night classes, I'd set alarms before and during the day it was due because otherwise I would forget. I labelled the alarms on my phone too, because I would forget the purpose of the alarm. And I only had one or two assignments at any one time.

What my younger brother and friends tell me about university and grad school sounds like a nightmare with my task management skills.
