Default Couch 158: The Newberry Couch!

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.

Itís 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.

Grab a cushion, a spot on the floor, or an armchair in the corner (or with us) and make yourselves comfy!

[Inspired by a military ship: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/USS_Newberry_(APA-158)]

BCM, I wish you could see my chair dancing! What a song...I love CCR...and Fogerty in particular. Did you hear the album he did where he re-recorded some of the classics with other artists? It's called Wrote a Song for Everyone. Check it out if you get the chance.

My T is on vacation, and he hasn't checked in at all. I am trying to talk to myself about not feeling entitled, not being anything but a calm stable client , but it is hard since he has been coaxing me to take big leaps of trust with trauma material. It is a really weird thing to be someone's job, someone's work they leave behind on vacays. I have had a good time though keeping occupied by listening to the Psychology In Seattle Podcast on youtube.

I totally got the time of my therapy appointment wrong. I thought it's at 2:30, but it's actually at 10:30 so I missed it. My therapist was super nice about it though.

But now I feel bad.

Except Yogi really didnít say everything he said.

Showing my age here - but every time I hear CCR, I think of this:

Thanks for the new couch! I am weaning myself down to less appointments with t. It is going well, but sometimes like now- I just feel like he disappears. It's weird not seeing him every week. I do see him this week though. Trying hard not to email him just to check in.

Hey, Starlight...

Just wanted to welcome you to the Couch.

healed - that sounds rough. Hope you are taking care of yourself in whatever way feels most appropriate to you at the moment.
