Re: Worry Room - Get it out, and walk away: No responses please

It's been 5 weeks since I've spoken to my psych, and another 3 weeks to go. Wish I could just erase them from my mind instead.

Re: Worry Room - Get it out, and walk away: No responses please

My manipulative & verbally aggressive neighbour insisted that I pay a tree lopper - to chop some branches high up.

The issue is not the tree pruning job itself (necessity or otherwise) - the issue is that other people's demands (neighbour screamed at me) always cost me $$ money & emotional distress.

This was not a priority (of any sort) - Doctors, overdue medical tests, Dental checkup etc, are a far far higher priority.

Yet due to my neighbour's insistence I've had to spend $700 that I do not have to spare (never did).

That's 2 entire week's wages for me (at the moment).

My neighbour's selfish self-focus wins again - I lost money & peace of mind that I could not afford to pay (or lose).

I've been upset & stress about this, all weekend (yesterday & today).
