I was shaking uncontrollably in therapy this week. I haven’t done that for ages (like, AGES). My therapist asked: “Are you cold?” (I think this is code for “I know you’re not but I see you shaking and I want to acknowledge it without making you feel freaky.”)

Me: “Nah, but I could use a blankie. Have you got a blankie?”

The Wonder Therapist: “A blankie? No, but I’ll get one. What colour would you like?”

  1. Awesome! I love that. My T has a big bag full of blankets (but she uses them frequently as a therapeutic tool). Kudos to your T though for being prepared to get you one! 🙂

  2. That’s just marvelous.

    Thanks for your condolences. I really appreciate that you bothered to comment. It means a lot, knowing people out there appreciate one another. Tell your doc that you’re appreciated.

  3. yay for a blankie Cous – I remember being so touched when S got one for me (although less impressed when she decided I couldn’t have it anymore)

    Having something literally to hold on to can make a difference when talking through the very painful stuff.

    I hope she gets you a nice one 😉 x

  4. This made me smile. The Psych Spectacular offered me a blanket a few weeks ago when I couldn’t stop shivering (in this case it really was a matter of being cold … no winter coat during a cold front … no good!). I, of course, was too stubborn to accept it, but I was really touched that she would offer it, nonetheless. 🙂

  5. It’s always an awesome feeling when you tell another person what you need and they come through! Kudos for asking too!!

  6. Gotta love the Wonder Therapist. And you for asking for what you needed. Great progress. Great healing. Good for you. Good and healing thoughts to you.
