Cat Therapy = Waiting For My Therapist

Hello, World!!! I have been so high anxiety that my therapist is coming to see me later on today. He is an amazing therapist. Part of the reason he is coming is the anxiety but the other is to meet my cat. Yes, he will have another clinician with him which is I think an awesome idea for ethical reasons. In fact he asked if his supervisor could come because she wants to meet Lil Gertie as well. They are also coming to make sure I am keeping my apartment clean which I am doing.

Lil Gertie has be quite helpful for me in regards to my Anxiety and PTSD symptoms. Its like she has a sixth sense of knowing when I am having and flashback and body memory. She comes up to me and snuggles with me. She woke me up from a nightmare by licking my nose. So she is very aware of what is going on with the PTSD side of things. I love Lil Gertie so much.  She knows when to help me.

Thanks so much for reading. It means a great deal to me. Have a great day to everyone of you. Peace Out, World!!!


Furry Friend, Wake Up Call

Good Morning, World!!! I, once again got woken up buy Lil Gertie with her licking me smack dab on the nose. I have an inkling this is going to be an everyday or almost everyday occurrence. I have this inkling because she has done it two days in a row now.

Today, I am have two appointments. One with my therapist and one with someone with the vocational team at the mental health agency I am client of.  I am of course going to be discussing my new cat with my therapist. I will be discussing employment with him as well as with the vocational person.

I should get going as Lil Gertie is trying to get my attention. Thank you for reading. Peace Out, World!!!

Random Thoughts

Good Evening, World!!! I came home from Art Group and Lil Gertie came running to me purring. Little did she know she was going to the veterinarian. Dr. B the vet is “impressed” on how sweet Lil Gertie is. She explained to me that she is overall in good health considering the trauma she has had. Dr. B explained to me on how to help Lil Gertie with the ear problems she has had and most likely will continue to have.

After bringing Lil Gertie home from the vet I had dinner with friends. We had corn beef, cabbage, potato’s and carrots with strawberry shortcake for dessert. It was yummy. Junior was there and he came home with me.

Now that we are at my place, Little Gertie appears to like Junior. Junior also likes Lil Gertie. He is in love with her but he can’t have her. I love them both so much.

I am going to get going and spend time with Junior. Have a great day. Peace Out, World!!!

Waking Up To A Furry Friend

Good Morning, World!!! I woke up this morning with Lil Gertie licking me smack dab on my nose. It shocked the hell out of me but it was the cutest thing ever. She is now taking a nap. She was sure active this morning. I am going to be posting some more pictures I took.

Lil Gertie, My Lil Fur Baby

Good Evening, World!!! I am enjoying the fact that I am a cat parent. Lil Gertie is quite entertaining. When she is not eating or napping she is at my side purring. She has been following me around like a lost little puppy when I am up moving around. Lil Gertie even sits at the door till I get home.

I am looking forward to telling my therapist about Lil Gertie tomorrow. I emailed him about her already and sent some pictures of her to him as well. I am so grateful that I got Lil Gertie as it has she has decreased my symptoms of my mental health diagnoses so soon after getting her. She is doing what she is suppose to be doing.

I need to get going. I am hungry and need to eat. Peace Out, World!!!


Spending Time With My Kitty

Hello, World!!! I went to the street fair in my neighborhood again today. I had a blast until my PTSD symptoms caused several panic attacks. I came home in tears and Lil Gertie came up to me and snuggled up with me. She is doing a wonderful job with helping me deal with my emotions.

Now that I am calmed down I can use other skills to help me deal with the unwanted left over emotions. One of the things I did was painted. I attempted to paint Lil Gertie but it didn’t come out the way I wanted it to. That’s okay because a friend of mine is going to help me learn how to paint a tad bit better.

Thank you for reading. Have a good evening, world!!!
