This has been a rather awful week--and good, as well. The awful stuff I've sort of already detailed, and that's enough of that. But the good stuff...I need to talk about that.
1. Yes, I relapsed. It was yucky and horrible. But one of my healthcare providers pointed out that this is the first time I bounced back so quickly. Usually it takes a month or two before I can eat normally, I have to wade through bunches of exercises to cope with anything I've decided to allow myself to remember, and there's usually some side-effect that requires my extended attention. THIS time I was able to eat normally by Thursday, the side-effects are still evident, but not pressing, and I seem to be finished with the aftermath of remembering with very little emotional trauma. In short--this episode was SHORT!!! YAY!!! I'm making progress!!! And that is a very good thing.
2. I went to girls camp. That was VERY fun. There is a young woman who will be in my seminary class in the fall, who also came to camp for the evening. She brought her girlfriend (yes, that would be a romantic/sexual girlfriend) with her. I had the opportunity to talk with her and invite her to come to my class. We talked for a little while. I introduced myself to the girlfriend and invited her to come, as well (she is not LDS). She said she didn't think she could get up that early. I just smiled and said she was welcome anytime.
It was good that I went to camp, and she went to camp and we were able to talk.
So today is Friday. I will run this morning. I am on day two of healthy eating habits. I am coping in the right way with the stresses in my life. I am okay. That is a good thing, too. Definitely, a very good thing.
