Emergency Discussion 4-5-08

We need to:

not bring other people into our arguments

not “survey” because it has that effect

not unilaterally bring in a third party even if the

third party is the subject of discussion

What to do about being unhappy and wanting to

talk about one’s troubles with someone?

a) therapist!

b) check out 12-step programs available locally

Emergency procedure:

One party says “I’m declaring an emergency.”

The situation is immediately interrupted, and the

argument is tabled until the next meeting.

The next meeting is scheduled as soon as possible,

but not within a three hour cooling off period.

The meeting is held on the single subject only.

All sounds good.

Hope it works out well, thinking about you.

Yesterday, my beloved husband, Dr. Psycho (how appropriate!) did something I never dreamed he would or even could do. He named the ways he has been mistreating me for the past many years, and he apologized.

I feel as if I had been reborn. I feel as if the sun has come up on my life. I can't tell you how I feel, but it's very very fine to feel this way.
