The roller coaster of PTSD
Since my last post I've felt a lot better but then felt worse again with bone pain. I continue to knit, collage, love my kiddos, fight periodically with my husband and go to therapy. I haven't needed any more percocet and am just using ultram as I need it.
I'm trying to learn to be gentle with myself.
I'm trying to meditate with guided imagery that my shrink recorded for me.
I'm trying to learn to take good care of myself but nobody ever taught me how.
Every time I do something creative I feel good about myself. The painting above was from our back driveway. The neighbor kids came over and I got out paints, sticks and paper and everyone went to town. It's a small thing but this is what helps me live from day to day.
