Counselor today at the women’s center

I went to a counselor/therapist at the women’s center today after my prenatal appointment…

She asked “what daily struggles do you deal with with your illness?”

I said “my room is messy, I’m unorganized”

She says “you know, being unorganized is a sign of a genius”

I kinda hate when therapists say stuff like this. I liked her for the most part though.

I finally go see my regular therapist on Monday.

But I will continue to meet with this counselor at the women’s center as well.

I struggle with organization, too. For example, I work as a janitor and to help me with the process of cleaning, I wrote down my tasks in order in which to do them. Anyways, I forgot the list at home tonight, and I was like completely clueless how to do the job. I didn’t do my best work. I kinda feel bad. Point of my story, is that I think most schizophrenics really struggle with organization.

I’d be anxious and nervous, too. My sister and 1.5 year old nephew are visiting from Arizona (I live in Ohio), and my nephew has been a blast to be with. He’s so cute lol. I’m sure you’ll be a great momma.

They’re here for 2 weeks! I haven’t seen them in a year, so I’m enjoying every minute of it. My nephew is much more expressive and verbal (and mobile, lol) since I saw him last. It’s fun just hanging around the house with them.

I’m messy too, but I’m organised. I used my phone to keep me organised.
