After finally being allowed to leave Primary medical Octavia had to agree to some terms, one kf those terms was to have weekly counselling sessions. Today was the start of those weekly sessions and she was looking forward to it, she really needed to speak to someone about what was happening to her mind and body. She walked into the psychiatry suit and waited at reception for the hologram to activate.

Normally, Mariah would remain in her office and wait for reception to announce the arrival of patients coming to see her, but she’d begun to make a habit of venturing out to reception herselffrom time to time, both as an opportunity to stretch her legs and to get a feel for what was happening within the department itself. She had to admit, she could be guilty of holing herself up in the office talking with people or dealing with the dreaded red tape, but she understood if she was going to advocate self-care for everyone else, she had to be able to practice what she preached.

Entering the reception from her office, she spotted a familiar face from her schedule. “Crewman Raain?”

“Thats me!” Octavia responded with a smile and a flourish of hands. “I’m a little early I know but didn’t want to make a bad first impression by being late!” She had a habit of that lately, sometimes she found herself just walking to engineering without even needing to be on the same deck and sometimes she’d find herself entering Raain’s old quarters. It was truly annoying.

Mariah smiled. Even though she understood what had taken place, it still felt a bit strange to encounter this outgoing exuberant young woman, who based on the reports she had read when she’d learned that a symbiont had been implanted within her, not on a temporary basis as she had expected, but permanently, had been understandably shocked. Of course, Mariah understood the presence of the symbiont meant personality shifts were to be expected, and it was her job to help make sure all experiences and emotions were properly processed. “No worries. Punctuality is appreciated,” Mariah offered with a smile and a handshake. “Shall we had back to my office?”

Octavia gave the woman a nod, “Sure.” She realised how rude and to the point she was being and hated every fibre of herself at the moment. Octavia moved in the direction of the Mariah and smiled, even if it was fake at least she was trying to be happy. “Lead the way counsellor.” She offered in the way of not being passive-aggressive. Once they started walking towards where Octavia assumed was her officer she allowed herself to relax, she hated being in public spaces at the moment another one of Goven lovely traits that she was desperately trying to rid of.

In short order they were inside Mariah’s office with its pale hues and comfortable seating for various species and races that made up Starfleet and the Ogawa in particular. Grayson took note of Octavia’s cheerfulness and wondered naturally if it was a front or a reflection of the personality changes that came with joining. Grayson wouldn’t blame her if it was a front. After what she endured, the struggle between reality and the desire to move on would be understandable. “Feel free to be anywhere you like. Feel free to stand too if you’d rather. May I get you something from the replicator?”

OOC Lori: So sorry! I wrote my thread replies elsewhere, but forgot I didn’t paste them!
