    I am FRUSTRATED! Could use support

    I have been responding to other people's posts but I felt this morning t that I need some encouragement. It's not my normal thing to ask for help. Sometimes I felt like I've always had to do life alone and still need to. So here it goes. I am planning an event for domestic violence awareness and prevention month which is in October and even though I posted it some places I didn't even get a thumbs up or any sort of comments or encouragement. I have had some people that tell me to not let it get me down and continue with my mission. The event will focus on the domestic balance and effects on children. I'm not asking people for money just for emotional support. Sometimes I feel like that is too much. I feel like I'm rambling here but I also feel like I'm hitting a brick wall with nowhere else to turn. People always react when I post pictures of meals and my service animal yet it seems like when I try to do something about the abuse I suffered I just get further ashamed and left alone. #CPTSD #ChronicDepression #Selfcare #Perception #PTSDSupportAndRecovery

    My self care is routine has many aspects. #Selfcare

    Today I got my flu shot as well as the updated Covid shot booster. A few weeks ago I got the pneumonia vaccine for at risk people under age 65. It boils down to this. Any medical issues that I can do something to avoid matters. I make my medications a priority and I don’t want to compromise them by having to take more medications that could interfere with their effectiveness. Being blunt, I also don’t to take them only to vomit them out. So many people already have to watch out for drug interactions due to circumstances beyond their control. I know I can still catch a stomach virus or another icky sick contagious thing. I try to exert as much control as is possible. I feel good when I drink enough water and eat healthier. ( I have my flaws of course). I respect people's attitudes and choices about vaccines. I truly do. I simply want to share that it can feel good and feel empowering to do whatever one can to maintain our current level of health.
