Default Couch 165: April showers.

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.

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

I can't believe your T told you to just use your credit card and get over it!!!

I'm an INFP, with the I and F floating a bit toward level, but the NP very extreme. hehe True to form, my T refused to disclose what he is or his overall opinion of these tests. (Ennegram 5 with a 4 marker???) I cant remember much about that test, including apparently how to spell it.

Morning couch. I am up and ready to start my day. Slept pretty well last night. I think it was due to the Ativan I took. Hmmm...

I am just relaxing now (though I should be cleaning) before getting dressed and heading out to meet a potential future roommate. Then for CVS. I think I am off tomorrow, so I can plan my lessons for my students for the week. And maybe clean a little.

I can't believe that Spring Break is basically over. Lol.

Meds taken. Trying to be a "good" patient. Pdoc stressed pretty hard on Wednesday that me being off meds is pretty detrimental.

Lemoncake- Good idea with the pregnancy test, if this keeps up maybe I'll buy some.

I Paypaled Etsy the $0.40 I owed them so I can offically sell again. Apprently my credit card payment was late so my bank didn't let me use my credit card to pay the fees.

I don't know if you live in the U.S., but I have heard that dollar store pregnancy tests are surprisingly accurate (and only a dollar!).

Really? Cause they keep them in the checkout lanes and I always look at them and think, “Hmmm...can those work?”

Holy (wholly) apt couch, Batman.

My head's a mess at the moment. I don't see R until the 19th, and in the meantime I have a meeting about my volunteering. Might lead to something good, but New Things are scary at the moment, when the past is taking chunks out of me.

Tomorrow's the second of three April anniversaries. I'm not doing well in the not eating my feelings stakes.

Can confirm the effectiveness of the cheap pregnancy tests. My fertility specialist has a policy where I'm supposed to test before every appointment and I groaned because of the cost. He said that the Walmart cheapies are sometimes better than digital tests.
