Wanted to give a small update. I am having a better time taking the stairs than I thought I would. Sometimes it is crowded but people are pretty good at not knocking me over LOL and Jess is always there with me.
The good news is this project seems to be running ahead of time. There are different phases and this first one was supposed to be two weeks long but only lasted a week.
Unfortunately this next one is the most intrusive and chaotic of all. Basically due to the process of moving really heavy stuff around and whatever they have to block off the whole first floor front area. So where reception, nursing, the group room and basically all main parts of the building. Staff can be in there but very limited access. So they’re gonna put the nurse’s station in the small dining room we have two. You need both to feed 200 people and so I don’t know how they’re gonna do it with just one room. So yeah. Also getting out of the building will be interesting as you’d have to go out through a back door and there’s currently no security in that area.
For this reason as I think I said in a previous post I was thinking of putting off therapy til this project was completed. But as time is going by and they’re ahead of time I decided to just stick with getting in to see her. Rob who is now assistant to Sarah, who is now in the role of director is very genuinely caring about how this will impact our lives and wanting to be supportive. I’m actually impressed at the caring shown here. He’s a pretty authentic guy, not as much as David but yeah.
Speaking of therapy will be talking with Jeane tomorrow. We’d been e-mailing back and forth about this situation and she suggested to just talk by phone on it. I will be explaining in more detail what’s going on. The stuff I’m stressed about like getting out of the building through another door and finding the pace van or them missing us if we do that. I will also explain pace in general, how we’ll likely be on time but could be late, and could have situations like when there was a lock down code called and we were stuck in the building and could not get out the door to go to therapy. She seems incredibly understanding. I guess funny enough, trilogy is having their elevator worked on around this time too! She had thought my anxiety was due to the elevator there being broken and so offered to meet in a park or coffie shop instead! Which was interesting. Would rather meet in the office but yeah it was a nice offer.
I’m hoping if all goes well, and honestly even if not I really want to start seeing her next week. Monday being a holiday I hope we can find a time that isn’t too late in the day. If so we’d hit trific and miss dinner. So we’ll see about that when it comes up. I’m anxious to know what she’s like. But really hopeful this therapy will help me continue to feel in control around not dissociating.
Will keep you updated about the construction and other issues.
