At this very busy of seasons, I’m going to share with you a little something I’ve thought about quite a bit.  As a person in a “helping” profession, I give a lot of myself at work. In school we learn about the “therapeutic use of self”.  We’re taught to put our patients and their needs ahead of our own.  We’re taught to give of ourselves. That often means at the end of the day, I don’t always have a lot left to give.
And the person who suffers that most is CP because he is closer to me than anyone else in the world.  Also, because we are so close I often consider him a part of me.  So, he gets the short end of the stick more often than not.  (And for some reason he loves me anyway).  This also means that sometimes I think I’ve told him things, but I haven’t.  I just figure if I know something, CP knows it- I mean I carry him around in my head and my heart all day long, so why doesn’t he know what I know?  Bless his heart- after almost 5 years, now I tell him to pretend I told him! 
Any of you out there “forget” to tell your significant other things?

  1. ALL. THE. TIME. Actually, more often I’ll mention something to AS in passing and never fully explain it and then expect him to understand completely at a later date. I can totally understand that happening to someone in a “helping” career like you. In my case, I think perhaps it’s because my job is all about communicating. At the end of the day, I’m sometimes communicated out!
