The First Good bye

We saw Psychiatrist for what I hope is the last time today. She left it open that we could come back before we leave if there is a need. I asked if she knew any psychiatrists in Capital, and she doesn't. I asked her if I should be looking for a therapist who specializes in Borderline Personality Disorder, and she said yes. Dialectical Behavioral Therapy is a skill based therapy being used with some success with BPD. I was hoping she'd say I was imagining the BPD symptoms, but no such luck.
In better news, I talked to the mortgage broker today. He locked in the 4.5% interest rate for me on Friday before the rates began to climb again. He had thought 4.75% would be the best he could do. I was hoping he'd be able to get me 4.5%, and so was very pleased at that news.
Realtor called today. He checked for electrical outlets in the basement for me. The good news is that there are 3. The not so good news is that they are not where I'd hoped. I will be able to plug in my freezer, though, and there will be a spot to set up a TV and such for Daughter to have a hangout area.
Things are moving along. It feels good.

My Molly has a BPD diagnosis....big surprise, huh? She's getting some kind of therapy in Wayne Cty. I'll check this out and share it with her but, right now, I'm on the bad list. I'm usually on the bad list. Thanks for the idea.

My hope is that this therapy will prevent Daughter from following in Molly's footsteps. You've been through so much with her.
