There’s a list of things I should be doing today… laundry, cleaning, exercise… and, yet, here I am sitting with my weighted blanket watching shows that comfort me.

April is a rough time of year for me. Memories of past trauma. I’ve been having several nightmares related to my trauma and because of pharmacy/insurance issues I’ve been off the medication that was really helping with energy and focus.

I should be doing that list of things but instead I’m listening to my body and it’s saying, I need to relax with my weighted blanket and watch Full House.

Living with trauma and chronic mental health issues can be a pain in the butt.

She believe she could… but she was tired… so she rested & you know what? The world went on and it was ok. She knew she could try again tomorrow.

And so tomorrow I will try try again!
