But that’s about something I’m taking care of…. Something outside of me which is part of the current problem; not having enough inside of me to be able to keep taking care of all these creatures and people outside of me. I have a psych appt on Tuesday which is good/bad. Good because psych appointment during time of need. Bad because it involves taking my dog up to Wisconsin to stay at the place where Husband stays during the week which is a rural wasteland with a friend who is…. SO draining and exhausting to listen to that I look forward to not having to deal with her. The OTHER problem with her is that she is SO SWEET that being mad at her also involves guilt at feeling that way. So I don’t know what to do.
