    Eeyore has been a disaster for the last two weeks. Finally found out that an aide asked about Kanga. It also explains why Tigger asked about her -- Eeyore said something about it to him.

    Oy! Even gone, she can still stress us all out!

    He didn't seem to realize that is what was stressing him out. Due to only having access to a real therapist once every 4-6 weeks, I have become very good at being his therapist, I just had him use some stream of consciousness to talk about everything that bugged him and when he hit on that, a look of shock crossed his face and I knew we had the reason. We talked it through and he seemed calm for the first time in ages.

    Hopefully, this is it and we can move forward.

    Wow. It's the stuff they DON'T tell us that drives them... and us... CRAZY.
    Glad you got to the bottom of it.

    Good job using your accomplished therapist skills. Hopefully, you will all have more peace now that you've dug out the root of the problem.

    Aw poor guy. Glad you were able to use a familiar exercise to help him realize what he was feeling. Hope the peace is a lasting one. -RM

    Sounds like getting it out of his system helped clear things up. Good to hear it!
