ETA:  Time to check back into the center.  Do I get my old room back?



Sure!

Your group sessions will be at 9, 10:30, 1, 4, and 7, and recreational therapy is at 8, 2:30, and 5.

You'll be too tired for any more app'ing! :smileywink:

Yep, ETA = edit to add.

HVT = harsh verbal therapy, a phrase from the original Sleigh Center days. The first time I saw it, I thought it meant High Voltage Therapy, and I wondered what exactly went on on this site.

Here's SpecFile's classic HVT:

HVT excerpt from the Sleigh Center thread

btw, the relapse rate at the Sleigh Center was somewhere around 140%, as best as I could tell, so you might not want to start reading it. :smileysurprised:

I'm saving HVT for what I consider dumb, impulsive, unjustifiable apping. The oh-cool-a-Hello-Kitty-card-that-would-be-so-much-fun-to-pull-out-in-front-of-my-friends apping. Or the everyone-else-is-suddenly-apping-WallyWorld-I'd-better-app-too apping.

Like what flitted through my brain last night when I got a letter from Citi saying I was pre-approved to apply for a Platinum Select something-or-other. ("pre-approved to apply?" They're going to allow me to apply? Cool!) One little brain spasm of gee, why not. Then I pulled myself back together.

:smileyvery-happy: Actually i was and still am apart of that center. The only thing that stops me from apping is the desire to get a Penfed card.

Positive therapy for me today, posted it in a thread but I'll double dip here as well. Closed Clown Jewelers on my terms, not theirs. Made me feel just as good as apping a new account. :smileyvery-happy:

 

I never felt good about that one, only opened it because "all the kids were doing it".

[ Edited ]

Since 2009 began, I have applied for 3 new credit products. I obtained an Orchard Bank Platinum MC and a GEMB Amazon Store card, while creditonebank rejected me b/c my "credit score exceeds the limit" they have for their products.

 

I vow no more apps for 6 mos. 

 

Also, how many inquires is "too many" during, say, a 6 month span?

 

Edited for spelling and to ask a ?

I love it!  They actually tell applicants when they're too good for Creditone.  :smileywink:   Finally some truth in lending!

Isn't that kind of like the opposite of apping?  That would mean your recent app count is at -1, so you can still app once and be at 0 :smileywink:

 

Sorry, I couldn't resist.  I feel like I just walked into an AA meeting carrying a Mojito :smileyvery-happy:
