    What’s a truth you stand by?

    The more I prioritize myself and my needs, the more I’m able to identify what truths I stand by in order to create the life I want for myself in recovery. My main truth is to always believe and pay attention to what my body and intuition is telling me, especially when I’m uncomfortable or I’m reaching a limit.

    What about you?

    Retail therapy

    I've been feeling very down for a few weeks now. I can't pinpoint the cause. I know I'm anxious about a big trip I'm taking in September but I'm excited about it too. But I've been thinking how am I going to get to the airport, can I afford an Uber, I still need to get a suitcase, and then I'm worried about how the people at the convention will treat me. I've got a bunch of friends that are going to be there so I should be ok. But I've also submitted a panel request to host a pagan discussion about tools we use. What if I do terribly? Ugh. So much to think about.
    So yesterday I hopped on Amazon and ordered a new plushie and a 5 lb jar of peanut butter and a jar of pumpkin butter. It cheered me up. I'm going to trader Joe's on Wednesday and will get some treats for making the tea that I like.
    Over the weekend I also ordered a migraine ice pack head thing. It's coming today. I've heard good things about them.

    3 years sober

    As the title suggests I have 3 years sober today. Quitting alcohol was, and still is a battle. In these past three years I have endured many ups and downs. I lost a good friend, lost my grandmother, have dealt with a disabling neurological disease, a rare blood disorder, and the inherent instability of a schizoaffective disorder diagnosis. Much of this was during the height of the pandemic. But for every one these hardships, there is also beauty. My family is proud of me. I am proud of me. I believe that God is proud of me. I no longer wake up sick, or ashamed. I have come to acknowledge that I am strong, kind, and resilient. And although I still struggle with many things, I am working on them. If you believe you have a problem, I would encourage you to seek help. It is the best thing you can do. You are worth it. I hope everyone is doing well!

    Your not done

    I heard this song today and I have pretty much played it over and over. This is a song for people who feel alone and that are ready to give up. It spoke to my heart and made me realize that I’m not alone

    Trauma therapy

    I’m fixing to head to process my first childhood trauma and I’m scared shitless. I’ve done the homework. Wrote the details of what happened I have the picture of me at that age that the the trauma happpened. I just want this little girl in me to feel safe enough to come forward and tell her story and not to hold back her emotions and feelings. She needs to be heard so we can both heal and finally have peace from the trauma. I can do this. I’ve got the strength and determination to let her be heard. #Childhood trauma #BipolarDisorder #SchizoaffectiveDisorder #ComplexPosttraumaticStressDisorder #OCD

    Child sexual assault


    I finished writing out my story of what happened when I was 9. I wrote out all the details and the feelinganzd emotions that went with writing it. I actually felt the physical pain while writing it. I felt the little girl come forward and write her story. I’ve protected her so long I didn’t think I could let her come forward to do it. I have my trauma therapy appointment Wednesday to go over this trauma. I wanted to throw up after writing it. I will never understand how 2 people could be so evil to do something like that to a little girl. I’ve held on to this secret for so long that I’ve pushed the little girl down and wouldn’t let her tell her story because I’m trying to protect her. I’m scared about the trauma session I’m going to have but after writing it I feel strength and determination to let the little girl tell her story so she can finally have peace. We both need peace. So this is going to be a rough week but I got this!!! #Child sexual assault #Bipolar #SchizoaffectiveDisorder #CPTSD #OCD #Child abuse
