Em vs. Rat

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.

    1. I've found that even when one wins, they are never satisfied, they just move on to another issue, lol. Thanks for stopping by.

  4. I think you must have visited inside my head at some point and have made a little sense of the chaos in there. I'm sure he will stop by your blog, but remember, there's female blatant and then you have male interpretation :)

  5. Hormones try very hard to drive us crazy. Sometimes they succeed and sometimes they don't. They are like waves and they just keep coming. We just have to swim faster. Keep up the good fight.

    1. Thank you for the compliment. I don't know if it's clever or not, it's just the stuff in my head.

      I'm glad your sir is helping you and thanks for stopping by.

  8. Em versus Rat, oh yes, I'm familiar that inward battle! And what is it about those no good hormones anyway? Spanking really does help, strangely enough. I hope Musicman helps you get things sorted out, Faerie.

    1. Thanks Grace, I hope so too. I've decided to charter a bus, I'm shipping the hormones off to Timbuktu, LOL. Just let me know if you would like it to stop at your place and pick yours up.

      Delete
    2. Oh yes indeed, a stop needs to be scheduled for here too...as long as no hormones try to exit the bus while at my house. I don't need that kind of help, just looking to get rid of the ones I seem to be stuck with! ;)

      Delete
    3. It will be strictly enforced, no exiting the bus until the final destination is reached.

  9. Faerie, you will win this. Ask him to read it. It will give him an insight of the battles you have to wage war on within yourself! xxxxxxxxx

    1. But will I survive unscathed? Somedays it doesn't feel like it. He is under the weather right now, but when he is better I am planning on asking him to read. We'll see what happens.
