Hi I'm Emotional Mind, but you can call me Em, all my friends do. I have to hurry because Rat doesn't like it when I talk without her around. She thinks that just because she is the Rational Mind she can control me.
Ha! I fooled her, I called in reinforcements, the Hormones. They're mean, they scare Rat because she can't control them the way she can me. Rat is resting right now because the Hormones have been kicking her ass for 2 days now.
Em, get off that computer, you know you can't write a post without me.
Oh yes I can, I don't need you. You have been gone for 2 days and I've been fine.
Fine? You call being mean to Musicman and crying whenever you feel like it fine?
Well, alright so I wasn't fine, but I was holding my own. I didn't need your help. If you would just let me do the talking then everything would be okay.
I let you do the talking last night and what did you accomplish? Really, Musicman was so busy handing you tissues and trying to calm you down I doubt he heard anything you had to say. Besides you don't have anything important to say.
Oh yes I do, I know how to make the mean Hormones go away.
Exactly how do you propose to do that?
That's what I wanted to talk to Musicman about. He always makes them go away. If you weren't so stubborn and would admit we need his help then we could just tell him what to do to help us.
You're crazy, I don't need any help and I'm not going to let you tell Musicman anything. He doesn't want to hear what you have to say.
Yes he does want to hear what I have to say, he wants to help us. If you would just get over yourself already and listen to me we could talk to him together and then he could help us.
Let me get this straight, you think if we tell Musicman that him spanking us will keep the mean Hormones away everything will be okay? Do you have any idea how stupid that sounds?
I know it sounds stupid, and I know you don't believe it, but I think it will work. I just need you to help me tell him, cause I have such a hard time talking to him.
Well I still think it's a stupid idea and I'm not helping you. I'm strong enough to fight the Hormones, and one of these days I will win.
Ha! Gotcha again, I already told Musicman that it would help.
I know, but he didn't believe you. You missed that because you were too busy crying on his chest.
That's okay, he may not have believed me, but that's not all I told him. I told him I really wanted him to read here and he said he would.
You are so naive, do you really think he is going to do that?
He said he would. He said he wanted to, but didn't ask because he didn't think we wanted him to. That's your fault, your the one who thinks you're so strong that you don't need any help.
Just because he said that doesn't mean he will do it. He probably just wanted you to stop crying. I'm the one in charge and I am not going to remind him, so there.
You may be the one in charge right now but we both know we haven't seen the last of the Hormones. They will come back and they will kick your ass again, because you aren't as strong as you pretend to be. I'm gonna let them too, and while you're distracted fighting with the Hormones I'll talk to him again. And I'll keep talking to him until he understands what we need.
I'm not too worried about that, you don't understand it yourself, so you can't explain it to him.
We'll see about that.
