Seeking Check-in/Book-ending Buddies and Possible PA Zoom meeting

Mama_Cat's picture

Hi --

when I first joined PA ten years ago my procrastination was tied into my incredibly intense anxiety, and the adrenaline spike I would get before starting a project (even just THINKING about starting one) would be so intense I couldn't think or breath. 

So, it hasn't been that intense for really a good long while. A GOOD, long while...until I recently started doing EMDR with my Trauma Therapist. Sigh. 

we're early in the process of working together and I' believe/hope/pray the more we work together, the better this will get. However, RIGHT NOW -- the anxiety ans corresponding avoidance/procrastination are seriously seriously seriously kicking my ass.


If anyone is game to work together as check-in/book-ending buddies, please feel free to e-mail me and maybe we can coordinate doing that!

I'd also be game to start doing a Zoom PA Meeting if anyone's interested.

Thanks a bunch!

Hi mama_cat! I can relate ... and current Zoom meetings.

Hi mama_cat!

I can relate to anxiety before starting projects.  I hope the EMDR is helpful. Glad you are finding some help.

Just thought I'd ask if you're aware of the Zoom meetings on Wednesdays at 12:30 PM, US ET? That's a 75-min weekly meeting that has been going on since May of this year.  I've been there most times.  Here is the info: but you'll have to contact pro in order to get the meeting passcode. 

Also, Barbara (Justitia on this website) has more recently started a daily series of Bookending calls on Zoom, at 11am, 1pm, 3pm, 5pm, and 7:30 pm US ET.  More info on that is here: , though that post is a bit outdated. I added a comment to clarify the current status - we actually have one more checkin daily than listed there, and usually also on Sat & Sun.

Not trying to discourage if you wanted to start something new or different, just thought I'd make sure you knew those were happening also. : )
