stillstanding Show full post »

Sunday was the first time I had been triggered in a LONG time, for some reason I had dreamed of DD the night before and I could not shake it off.  My husband noticed and asked if I was okay and we ended up talking about it for the first time in probably 4-5 months.  It helped and I was able to let it go after us talking.  

I do think that the unrelenting stress right now is making it far harder to maintain equilibrium.  Deep breathing, lots of listening to books and keeping myself occupied helps (for me) getting out in nature helps.  Lots and lots of self care when possible too.  Plus I’ve used all the suggestions (including whiskey) that stillstanding provided.  

Just take it day by day and be gentle with yourself.
