Subby – Week 8 (2 of 2)


Unconsciously and apparently I have been telling Subby that I need to get sick in order to have time to myself, enough rest and relaxation and permission to be given to and taken care of by others. Subby kept me up late every night last week to make sure this happened.

On Thanksgiving evening I became sick. Chills. Fever. Cough. Nausea and Vomiting. This is not the self-care I had in mind when I wrote my DMP.

Dear Val, please help Subby by following your DMP to the letter. Note especially this sentence:

Water Women

I luxuriate daily in my top 6 nurturing activities before Oct 2018. I am in bed by 9:30 pm. I am honest with myself, realistic about what I can do and I do it now.”

Thank you.

  1. Hope you are feeling better! I know that illness routine, for I have dealt with the same subby struggles. But she is beginning to change and so is how I “receive” self-care. Here’s to our health!
