Good news is, I’m starting to feel better again. I’m focusing on that, because It’s way better than beating myself up over the fact that I didn’t a few days ago.
I have ongoing mental disorders, and I have to accept that.
I don’t really want to; but let’s get real, already….
It’s not like I’m going around trying to bipolar and PTSD on everyone everyday or do; so I’m definitely going to have to give myself a break regarding my ups and downs. Back-track is going to happen at points because I am human.
I HAVE been extremely stressed. There ARE valid reasons behind it.
It’s going to be alright, even when it doesn’t feel like it; and I know that.
I’m going to be alright.
That’s why I’m bouncing back quicker after the dips nowa’days.
I DO have coping skills in me; and the EMDR therapy, should help me to not dip as much in the future.
I have two calls in currently, to potential therapists. I’m hoping it won’t be a long, drawn-out process; but I also think I have to be patient in all regards, because I also have a feeling that a lot of phone tag is going to be going on before I get an appointment anywhere.
That’s just me being realistic, based on my own knowledge about how the mental health system works.
It’ll be ok. I will find that EMDR therapist; and I will learn even better skills.
Patience. I will keep on top of it, until I find a therapist….and I am doing it for me.
Nap after work today, instead of painting; because I needed it.
Picked up a double on Sunday; and also starting to make peace with T, finally.
I had to for ME. There’s no sense in focusing on things of the past that cannot be changed…even if they were shitty. Only letting go of the negativity and bitterness of it will heal me in that area; also realizing that I’m not the only one who struggles with demons. I know I’m not.
There will never be the kind of future for us like we planned to have; but a supportive friendship I think is something that is being built again between us, right now. As friends. I believe that that is better for both of us anyways. He will always be important to me; and I can’t deny that fact.
That’s a huge step for me to say that; and we will see. I know it depends on me, just as much as him…and it is what it is……
I’m just making peaces.
Life is funny the way it works, and even funnier when you live inside my head.
I need to put a map up there, complete with “you are here” markers. It would give other people a fighting chance in understanding me; and maybe when I get lost, it’d be easier to find my way back too.
That’s never going to happen; but I AM working on it, every day. 🙂
475 days without alcohol; and knowing that I am on my way to greater things. 🙂
This I know.
