    The Trauma of Intrusive Thoughts

    The more I have dealt with Intrusive thoughts, and the more I see others deal with them, I firmly believe it is quite possible to develop a form of Complex PTSD that is somehow caused by these thoughts and how they harm you. Afterall, it becomes a life threatening situation when you can't even feel safe in your own skin. It is the perfect recipe for PTSD. I have NO scientific proof of this or anything. It is just my thoughts and observations. Maybe someday they will link a correlation or they already have and I don't know about it. Either way, if you deal with Intrusive thoughts, know that you are not alone. You are more than these thoughts. They are NOT a reflection of who you are as a person or your value or worth.

    This is me..:

    “I am not a stranger to the dark
    Hide away, they say
    'Cause we don't want your broken parts
    I've learned to be ashamed of all my scars
    Run away, they say
    No one'll love you as you are”

    It took forever to see the movie associated with this amazing song but I heard the beautiful and talented Keala Settle sing it repeatedly beforehand thanks to my love for Pandora radio.

    Whenever I hear this song it resonates. My life, myself.

    “This is me.”

    My life. I’m scarred both physically, mentally and emotionally. But I’ve survived, and I’ve thrived. I have 2 amazing kids, a loving boyfriend, friends I love and a job I adore.

    “This is me.”

    With my 2 amazing kids come a myriad of issues.

    My 18 year old daughter. Beautiful, talented, caring and compassionate. She has Attention Deficit Disorder, anxiety, and Ocular Myasthenia Gravis. Myasthenia Gravis is a neuromuscular disease we never heard of prior to her diagnosis, but have learned so much about. With this disease comes the concerns with medications she can or cannot take, vaccines she can or cannot take based on her meds, and accommodations at school due to difficulties she occasionally has with her eyesight due muscle weakness. But since her eyes are the only thing affected currently, there is a 50% chance her whole body can eventually be affected.

    My 13 year old son. Adorable, playful, imaginative and loving. He has autism level 1, anxiety and asthma. We hear everything regarding this little guy from, “oh he doesn’t look autistic” (which elicits a comment from his protective older sister, “what does autism look like?”) to “he doesn’t seem autistic.” You never know how uninformed people can be when they feel a disability has a particular “look” or behavior. Autism Spectrum Disorder is just that, a SPECTRUM. It’s a wide range of issues and behaviors.

    “This is me.”

    I have 2 divorces under my belt, not that I am proud of, but I do. I also have scars and other issues I am dealing with. I have also took the leap and got diagnosed ADHD, and discovered that I also have obsessive compulsive personality disorder. Things I have always wondered over the years are finally settling into place.

    So, this is me…

    My week and my attitude, glad to be resting

    I started making plarn today. ( for those who don’t know what plarn is, it’s plastic yarn), and finger crocheting rope and the plarn. I'm gonna join the two together to make a bathroom mat.
    Had a lice scare yesterday. But it turned out to just be a case of dry scalp and bad eyesight. High anxiety, I’m still itching just thinking about it.
    I had a little money left over after paying some bills, just enough to buy myself a new bra. Super excited about that. (Having little to no money can also be a source of anxiety.
    Helped the kids (ages 7,5, & 4), clean up their bedrooms and the play room; an all day event and super frustrating for me.
    (I think I'm what people call an authoritarian when it comes to children and cleaning).
    Cleaned the kitchen, cleaned out the pantry, silverware drawer that was also the "catch all " draw, which drives me crazy. The pots and pans and baking sheets and such, hate all that chaos.
    I totes wish being a grandma was easier, Im too old for this mad house life.
