Spent a good deal of time going over with the therapist today why I didn't want to spend Thanksgiving with anyone but me. I just don't feel like going out, being with a group of people, having to be social. I'm tired. On the best days, I have to psyche myself up to plunge into group dynamics. When I'm tired like this folks, no matter how my relationship with them, suck even more life out of me.
I don't know if she believed me; had the weird look on the face that tells me that I described something wacky. Finished up the session by assuring her that I'd probably end up going where I'd been invited. We'll see about that.
