1) We went to see one of the two child therapists. I'm not entirely sure if she'll be better than nothing.
2) More à propos, I have made an appointment for myself for one of the very few people who are all of in town, covered by my insurance, and available. When I spoke to the therapist, the words "body work" (is that one word or two?), "guided visualization", and "neurological trauma" were heard. However, what I actually want is to be less depressed, sad, and cranky all the time. So I am going to turn off my automatic reflex when I hear "And there are scientific studies!" in connection with psychology.* You know, whatever. I'll try it, and I don't want to take SSRIs again right now**, and I will make sure to take a deep breath and secure my disbelief overhead before walking in the door. Maybe it will help.
3) Yesterday Bug and Tatoe got one piece of candy each (Bug also ate a cupcake, I think) and were out of their tiny minds by lunchtime. AIIEEEEEEE.
* There are many good scientific psych studies. The ones in question do not figure among them.
** Because they give me incurable insomnia, although they are otherwise terrific.
