At the end of this month there's a week I'll be working 9 hour shifts 5 days in a row. Guess I'll be pretty occupied while T is in colorado...

I have mixed feeling about this. Part of me agrees that a T should be open to receiving anything that does't harm them and then help the client process out whatever was causing said behavior and what might have been a more appropriate way of dealing with said behavior.

On the other hand, I agree with you that people don't deserve to be verbally abused.

So, was your T's comment about not appreciating being yelled at a helpful way to process whatever you were feeling and show you (teach you) an appropriate way of dealing with your anger? Were you actually being verbally abusive because you can yell at a person and still not be verbally abusive.

I don't consider what I did abusive. I think T didn't know what to do with my erratic behavior and unstable-ness at the time

I shouted at him that he is just sitting there. And he was just sitting there playing with a small puzzle

It felt so bad that he thought I was high when I've been battling this every day and have not been using. And I go in there and its like pointless bc he thinks I am using

What he thinks isn't what's important though. I guess.

However he is so important to me. And I HATE THAT.

Remember it's not pointless because you're still clean! That's worth it in itself. It sounds like he really dropped the ball and I'm not surprised you were frustrated with him. But when he realises his mistake (which he will if you carry on staying clean) you can repair this rupture. It's okay that he means a lot to you. You mean a lot to him too. This will pass.

Don't have the energy to catch up. Sleeping this much is not normal, right? Friday night went to bed at 21:00. Woke up Saturday at 09:00 stayed awake for an hour went back to bed. Woke up at 14:20. Couldn't even finish the ball game, went back to bed from 15:00 til 17:00, had plans to go out with a friend, I went. Got home at 21:30 bed at 22:00. Woke up Sunday at 06:00 went back to bed at 07:30 woke up at 11:00, once again couldn't finish the game went back to bed at 12:30 woke up at 18:00. Sister came over, went to bed at 22:00 and now I am at work and just want to go to sleep again.
