Good Morning, World!!! If you read my last post you know I got punched by a neighbor. I got punched in the face and have the black eye to prove it. It hurts like hell. The doctor told me last night that I have a slight concussion.
I am sure that when I see my therapist today that we will be discussing the assault as well as other things. Things like my safety regarding my neighbor being violent.
I also see my psychiatric nurse practitioner today and I am sure she will be discussing the same thing my therapist will be talking to me about. Except I see her before I see my therapist.
Right now I am watching the news. I don’t understand what the big deal is regarding the royal wedding. I’m not saying that I don’t care about it. I am just saying it doesn’t need to be discussed everyday for a month. Yes, I know it is this Saturday but I’m already sick of hearing about it.
There is a cloud cover here in Seattle which is making it a little cooler than yesterday. I wish it wasn’t cooler as I love the warm weather. The news say it is suppose to get up into the high seventies which I am thrilled about. I just wish it was in the eighties again. The eighty degree weather will be here soon enough.
Thank you for reading. Have a great day. Peace out, World!!!
Hello, World!!! It is one o’clock in the morning in my corner of the world. Right now I am having trouble sleeping. I am having trouble sleeping for a multitude of reasons. Actually, two reasons. First is due to the fact I am missing my grandma. Today marks one weeks since she passed away. Second is because of the physical assault that happened the other night.
It hasn’t been the easiest week for me yet somehow I am making it though. I am choosing to focus on my recovery. I am choosing to not harm myself when urges arise. I am choosing to live a life worth living for me.
All I can say right now is that it is freezing outside. It is 27 degrees Fahrenheit outside. I am not a big fan of cold weather. Hot weather I can deal with but not so much the cold weather. Maybe it is because I am from beautiful sunny Southern California.
Thank you for reading. It is appreciated. Peace Out, World!!!
Good Evening, World!!! My PTSD is acting up because of the assault that happened last night. I was able to talk to Gilbert earlier about what happened and we came up with a safety as a preventative measure. A preventative measure as just in case I get self harm urges at some point today.
One of the things we came up with was music. I can play my flute or harmonica if it’s before ten o’clock at night. I can also listen to music. As I mentioned before when words fail music speaks and I find this to be true.
Another thing I can do is art. Art has become a very helpful (and healthy) skill to have for me. Art is a way for me to express my emotions in a positive way.
The last thing we came up with was reading as it helps me get out of my head. Gilbert and I discussed reading my book as well as Wonder Woman comic books. We discussed superhero’s and how they relate to recovery.
Thank you for reading. It is appreciated. Peace Out, World!!
