Little plants take so long to grow! #CPTSD

I've lived with a CPTSD diagnosis for 12 years. I spent the first few years not knowing what it meant, not being able or know how to make changes. I ignored/avoided the whole thing, all the while smiling that smile we all have. The 'good girl' smile. The 'im very competent' smile. I ignored my trauma, all the while feeling like it had been a story someone told me once. I ignored my brain yelling at me until I could ignore it no longer.

This year I started anti anxiety medication for the first time and experienced the first stillness in my brain. I'd never had it before and it was amazing but I feel like this little cup of dirt. Seeds have been planted but as we all know.. seedlings take a long time to grow. It can seem too long sometimes.. I know I have to be patient and try not to follow the old pathways but it's so hard sometimes.. #ComplexPosttraumaticStressDisorder #AnxietyMedication #everydayisastruggle #fightingmybrain


It's just for TODAY #chroniclife #ChronicIllness

It's just for today. Some wise woman told me this. For people like you and me, it's the last thing we want to hear, but when you break it down, it makes sense. Tomoro is a new day. Each breath is a miracle.
