    Thank you for your good wishes. I do imagine what it might be like to be on my own. I no longer imagine a job I would enjoy because I'm pretty sure there is no such animal. I had one job in 30+ years...

    I should have clarified: I saw the counselor last year five times. I don't know...maybe that's not enough time to know whether anything is going to work? A lot of information-gathering was going on...

    Oh, I totally agree. I had a crackpot for a therapist for a very short time years ago. She was convinced my panic attacks were as a result of too much sugar in my diet. Every time I went, I got a...

    I am not sure what you mean. We have a local mental health center with day programs where you're in group therapy part of the day, doing team building exercises at other times, going to the...

    It's the dangling part. It hangs crooked and just looks sort of forlorn there.

    This is very discouraging. We don't have enough files--we'd probably have to pay the doctors to get them. And he never made enough money when he was working to get anything in Social Security...

    I'm guessing maintenance is something like alimony? Believe me, it has crossed my mind.

    I just wish there was some way for things to change that wouldn't be incredibly painful for everybody...

    I know it's not fair. I don't know what to do about it. I suppose I could just walk out and I suppose everyone would think I'd be right to do so. But I happen to love this person and it goes much...

    The counselor's office just called with a cancellation for Monday. I'll have to leave work and then return afterwards but it's better than waiting three more weeks.

    Can anyone tell me what a "closed" Al-Anon meeting means? The web site says "open to members and interested parties."

    There is no "list." This is it. And in fact, she is the only counselor that works at the place. It is a legitimate counseling center (it's part of Family Services of Our County). Funding has been cut...

    I've been to an AA meeting with a friend (years ago) and I used to go to ACOA.

    I'll have to Google our local meetings and see what's available. I found ACOA very hard to deal with. I remember...
