As I was saying, I had a pretty good day yesterday. My appointment with Dr P went quite well, and we’re trying out a new type of therapy called Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT). We’ve gone over what it’s about and just barely scratched the surface but I’m hoping that this will be the trick that’ll help me get over some of the big stumbling blocks I still face.
Yesterday evening I went over to DA’s place and had a great time. I hadn’t seen him in a long time so it was great to catch up and talk about stuff. He only had a couple of tiny bits of stuff from work (I was grateful he didn’t go into any detail). He cooked up some chicken on the BBQ and we kept talking. Later on his girlfriend arrived and the three of us sat outside and talked until well after the sun went down.
To be honest, I was getting a little worried that DA wasn’t interested in getting together anymore but he’s a really busy person and I was just anxious about it I guess. We talked about everything – tools, motorcycles, snowmobiles, our families… all kinds of stuff. I was out for over an hour longer than I’d anticipated.
When I got home, J was sitting on the couch in the living room. Turns out she slipped in the shower while I was gone but thankfully came out of it with only a couple of bruises. We were both pretty tired by that point so we decided to call it a night pretty quickly after I got home.
