Soulkeepers - I understand your pain. I'm sorry you are feeling this way tonight. I Care! I know you don't know me personally, but I care. I care about everyone on this board, because we have shared our pain and our triumphs with each other. Please take a moment to do something nice for yourself (Ice cream, a warm blanket, etc.) and remember we are here for you. ((((((((((hugs)))))))))
Still safe so far but the urge is yet there.Just having to do something triggered all kinds of things.The mind is a land mine every where you step.It's kind of silly but a task to complete even if it has to be done.
Have to have a procedure done and it's not registering to well.The idea of being unclothed,asleep and with strangers is setting off alarms.That's too close for comfort in the mind of someone who has been abused.
The mind is in full flight mode just screaming to run.It's very different from any other time when dealing with triggers.
I understand completely about having to undergo procedures and how that is extremely triggering. Can you ask for a female provider and the least amount of people to be present during the procedure? Meaning no students, residents in training, etc..
I like what you wrote about the mind as a land mine.... This is a great description of what it is like to be us... Can I use this phrase in trying to describe myself to my T?
If I could have one day and have that day be very windy and choose what I wished to be... I'd be a Kite and fly free...
The limit of people being in there can be accommodated.Something like this should be easy but it's always a challenge cause so many things run through the mind.Thinking how defenseless a person is in the situation,so many things come roaring back.Just a lot of creepy factors with 40 minutes to an hour.
The mind is a unpredictable thing there's no switch one can hit.It took one hell of a combination to develop the mind set that we have.Will try to stay safe and busy this weekend and Monday call the Dr office.That's the idea as for now you never know what might get thrown into the mixed of things.
You did need to ask to use any words here.If it helps you to express yourself then feel free.Use whatever is comfortable Sometimes I have to be careful where I step in my own mind.I use too warn my T when the wasn't going good.Watch where you step,which let's him know that anything can trigger something.
