Uhg. I don't really want to do this but I will, I think.

Lots of "I" statements there. That's a good start.

Last week my therapist made the comment that:

It seems like you get very reasonably upset, and then she does something small and nice and then everything resets to where you were just a little upset and you accept it. It's a cycle, right?

And uhg.

Because I've always addressed the question of "are you okay??" with a quick and decisive YES!

Fuck. Shit. GT???

GT? Is being in a relationship where we have cycles of 1) acceptance and then 2) demand and then 3) disappointment over demand normal? I always assumed so. But if I have issue and then small, limited solution and then same issue again?
