AFGO: another fucking growth opportunity

At my therapy appointment last week, we talked about the frustrations I have with people interjecting themselves into this situation with Sammy... Being supportive is one thing, but throwing a fit because you're not in the thick of it is inappropriate.


It was a really well timed visit honestly.

One of the hardest things about my nephew being ill is not knowing what is going to happen or be able to plan things. Obviously when any crisis like this affects my sister, I want to be there right away. I'm glad I waited and tried to plan better, because if I had gone right away I would likely have had to miss the surgery itself. That's too important.

The uncertainty is hard. The out of control feeling is hard. The patience is hard.

My therapist told me to treat it like an AFGO - another fucking growth opportunity.


I certainly appreciate the idea, especially the bit about the cursing... and how it sounds like you're fed up with the situation already.

Definitely, especially with you-know-who.

That's how I'm going to approach this right all now - as multiple opportunities. It's an AFGO. It's an opportunity to see my sister, meet my nephew, and hang out with the fam. It's an opportunity to see San Francisco and travel more.

Mostly, it's an opportunity to be in a type of care coordination role. I need to make sure that this family is taking care of themselves and do what I can to help them with Sam and Marissa.
