The horror!

You know, it’s pretty cool when you tell your therapist something about your family and she is appalled. It makes me feel like my brand of crazy is a little more potent. If your therapist is like “Holy shitballs, batman!” something must be wrong.

And? Don’t forget to “de-lurk.”*

    You’re lucky. My therapist always played it really cool, like nothing could shock her. All I wanted was a little recognition, and to feel that my craziness was justified. You’d think for $115 an hour the bitch could have given me that just ONCE.

    I dont’ get the ‘not lurking’ thing. I mean, I hate leaving comments like: “OMG! That was so funny!” or saying the same thing everyone else did. I don’t get it.

    Anyway, I’m commenting to this because I LOVE WHEN THAT HAPPENS!!!

    I feel like I’m 5 and my eyes get all huge and my mouth hangs open and I speak in run on sentences and I say, “See! See why I can’t do this? Do you see now!”

    My favorite ‘Freak the therapist out’ had to do with something so horrific my in laws (who I’m not allowed to talk about on the internet…I hope they don’t de lurk!) said to me. It was so freeing and validating.

    My household is strange as well. The cleanin’ lady thinks its really cute to go into my room and switch out the little caps on the contact case so that the L is on the right side. She also thinks its funny to go get my little wooden manniquin that is used to model for painting and make it do ballerina poses.
    I consider her family anyways. That isn’t too bad, is it?

    being forced to de-lurk. it’s like actually having to say something in class. like when we went to class to find out how to baptize our son and the deacon kept asking questions like “why are you doing this?” and I refused to answer because what I really wanted to say was “because I’m Catholic and I don’t want my child to burn in the fires of hell for eternity.” But really they hardly ever bring up the fires of hell in Catholic churches in the US anymore. And in some ways that’s just sad, because it means that you’re not afraid to not answer in class. So, see, it would have been better if you’d said “de-lurk or burn in hell.”
    And that’s what happens when you ask the lurkers to expose themselves.

    That’s like when I went to confession for the first time in like 27 years.

    Bless me father, for I have sinned. It’s been 27 years since my last confession.

    “OH MY GOD!”

    you know you are in trouble when you make a priest say the Lord’s name in vain.

    I made him do it twice too.
