Shower, more coffee, fresh as a highly caffeinated daisy.
If you have two people who care very deeply about you, and you, or a pathological process at work in you, wish(es) to set them at odds, one way to go about it is to convince each in turn that you desperately need protecting from the other.
This might not work quite as planned if either of the other people is clever enough to realize that the only person a person who would do something like that really needs protecting from is herself.
Honestly, dear- what in fuck's name were you thinking? I know most all the plots & weave subtler dialectics half awake over my morning coffee. Trapped in a crude melodrama, where's the witty repartee in that? And lacking that, where's the point?
Pleasant cool breezes.
