I just wanted to do a small update as I haven’t posted in awhile.
I think I’ve mentioned that I’m back on the Seroquel. It’s definitely made me sleep again.. too much, but at this point I’ll take too much over not enough. Pick your battles I guess.
I’ve been having a lot of nightmares. Not about my abuser but a member of his ex-family. She was my best friend and I’m dreaming about trying to get her to believe me about what happened, etc. The dreams suck but I know deep down inside that it doesn’t matter if she ever knows the truth or believe me, because I know the truth. I own my truth and that’s all that matters.
It’s been a long winter and I’m definitely ready for Spring. I have a trip coming up ahead for my birthday. I’m really looking forward to that as well as doing more advocacy work. The 10 year anniversary of my sexual assault is coming up and I want to use my voice, not just for me but for other survivors.
That’s my little update. Thanks for reading.
