When a traumatic event happens in our lives it is common to develop temporary associations to events or situations surrounding the trauma.  My association was cooking dinner on Tuesday night.  I was cooking dinner when my Mom called me with the news about Erica on Tuesday March 8th.  I had an emotional breakdown in front of my stove.  So for the first month after, I didn’t cook a lot and I had my husband take me out to eat every Tuesday night.  It is two months later and today is Tuesday and I was able to fix dinner.  Progress!
