Getting help

This morning I went along to the school counsellor. I had a bit of a meltdown a couple of weeks ago, and my poor friend that got the brunt of my tears sorted out a referral form after her saying that she can't believe I'm going through such a psychological upheaval without talking to anybody. Not that everyone should go and see a counsellor, but it is definitely such a big deal for me personally that she was totally right.

It was a bit of an ordeal and I don't think we even began to touch on a lot of the issues but I think it will be a very valuable process in the long run. She's asked me to come in the morning before surgery, next Tuesday, to have another session so I think it will be good as my nerves inevitably will have started kicking in by then! This last week has absolutely flown by so I can't even imagine how quick the next one will go!!!

Ah V, Sorry to hear you're having a time of it. Let me add my hugs and encouragement too~ xoxo

(Just personally, I think it's a great idea for most people to have a chat with someone about all this stuff prior to surgery, so huge kudos to you for doing so)

Thinking of you and massive amount of positive energy is being sent your way from across the pond. :)

Hi V, I'm glad that you have an outlet to sort things out. Surgery or not, it's needed and can only better your life and well-being! Take care.

Hey V, don't stress. We are all here with you! You will do great. Try to stay positive. You are right about this week flying by. Tuesday will be here before I know it and that is okay. When the surgery day comes and goes, we will recover and be beautiful in the process. """Hugs"""
