I have a dissociative disorder than can play...um, havoc with anathesia (I can 'block' it. So she just smacked me under I remember them geting me onto a table or something...then some comments about being in recovery? then the ride to my room...looking for my friend (he wasn't there yet) then walking...um...Glad to be home- Oh, Angus went bananas when I got home, but he is being rather subdued, he knows 'something' happened but being VERY good.. still 3 sips of water and whew...FULLthank god(s) for popsicles! gotta keep up the liquid intake (which is going to be tricky I am realizing...) a nice quiet weekend. take my 'shield' and go to the dog park later (wonderful weather this weekend!)Therapist on Monday and that is about it.. maybe a movie Tuesday if they are painting.My stomach is a bit sore, but think it might be trapped gas? (walk walk walk I am told)thanks all
