Phew! My working week is over as I have tomorrow off. I do need a bit of a rest.

bim, my guess is that the one in the photo knows his place is at the top of the hierarchy

I'm an only child, also. I'm also very bad at asking for help. I usually only ask after I have exhausted everything I have in me and I'm desperate. By then I am stressed, anxious, and feeling like a failure. I'm working on this. I think I'm just so used to being self-sufficient that I feel bad if I can't figure out how to do things myself. Not sure.

Nice to hear from you Marty.
Asking for help I reckon is a tricky one for alot of us. Accepting help and getting through to the other side...

At the top of the hierarchy you say Sao. That would make you an Emperor Penguin. OK so we shall accord you the emperor spot amongst all the weekender penguins.

Enjoy your long weekend

How's the job going ML....?

Willow it's Friday in Australia so happy 7 month anniversary. Your rocking it.
Take care this weekend at the party.

Goodnight to you all MB Cap'n Zoey Bim Mrs P... (and I shouldn't have started naming folks....)
Goodnight weekenders.

Back from boxing.

Bim, Marty - I am not the only child, but asking for help is nearly impossible for me.

Sao - Congrats on an extra day-off!

Vinny - Goodnight)

Ohhh! Vman, so it is! I hadnít actually realised yet lol, Iím still drinking coffee and waking up, thanks! Yippee for 7 months sober

Thanks Sao and Zoeydog I did feel lot clearer after the last session
Youíre quite possibly right PJ I may well see things differently down the track when I have more perspective. Iím just feeling pretty bogged down in grief, and just donít really feel like talking about minor irritating situations at the moment, which seems to fascinate her. Iíd rather work out tools to cope with the overwhelming sadness of loss. But maybe she is somehow angling towards that in a way I just canít quite see yet, and I may well see things differently later. I think itís really great that you wrote to your psychiatrist. I hope youíre healing well after your surgery.

Iím off to the hairdresser today as a self-reward for my 7 monthiversary that I booked weeks ago
happy Friday everyone

Congrats on 7 months, Willow!

I am watching "Men Who Built America". Incredibly interesting.
