beware: therapy

so i go to therapy this morning and my therapist doesn't show up. i am not even sure i was there at the right time but i had called ahead to make sure and not heard back but it seems that sometimes she doesn't get her messages so i left her another one and haven't heard back yet and wonder where she is.

i'm not particularly unstable and therapy isn't particularly crucial at this moment in time but i do have that paranoia that people who are important to me are going to disappear and this sort of thing feeds that paranoia and thus the situation produces its own anxiety where i felt just fine before.

probably this fourth cup of coffee isn't helping.

bugs

when the west nile virus comes to california i will be the first to contract it. every night i am attacked by squadrons of mosquitoes. i don't know where the stagnant water is that must be their nursery but i'm thinking of complaining to the landlord. i mean they must be coming from somewhere nearby. otherwise they'd fly in someone else's window.
