Working thru things.....The nightmares have been intense. I have been rocked by bad migraines. I think the stress is getting to me. My energy levels have not been up to par. I hope I can get past this. This has been such an exhausting journey.

Oh dear, AZ, I'm sorry to hear about the migraines. How are you managing those?

When I feel one coming on I use ice on my head. If I catch it soon enough, it can ease. (((hugs)))

Do you ever pamper yourself, spend time just doing things for yourself?

The migraines have been intense since I have was attacked. They come daily. I have to be in a dark silent room with a cold compress on my head. Sometimes they hurt so bad I cry myself to sleep.

I was pretty proud of myself last week. I did two things for myself. I read a magazine from start to finish. I am big national geographic fan so it helped me keep my mind off the heavy stuff for awhile. I needed a break.
Second I gave myself a pedicure and painted my nails. I have been struggling to leave my house. Its become my safe haven. I leave just to go to therapy.

Good for you, AZ! Keep doing those kinds of things; often it's little things like that which pull us through.

struggling with flashbacks today...Feeling sad. I hate my life. I hate what I have become. This is not life....Everyone says it is not my fault but why can't I believe that? My mind is my worst enemy....
feeling discouraged today....

The roller coaster of it all is really so wearying, isn't it? Take care of yourself today and know that this will pass. Find a way to break away from all of this for a while.

I had my session yesterday and told my pdoc I needed a break and needed to talk about something else. I cant deal with the SA stuff....I have had alot of things on my mind lately and I dont know what to do? I want to start over again. I have contemplated moving again, maybe even out of the state I am in. I don't feel safe in my home anymore and its getting harder and harder everyday.
Maybe its me running but I need something because I cant seem to hold my head above water.
On top of that on my way home I got into an accident. It wasn't my fault but the stress of it all is too much for me right now. Today I have dealt with insurance adjusters and chriopractor appt. I feel very shaky. My nerves are shot. I cant catch a break. The world hates me. I keep getting the shaft everytime. Feeling very discouraged and just dont care about life anymore.

I hope your pdoc heard you and the two of you can work on just getting you through what's hitting you now to get you on firmer ground.

I am sorry to hear about the accident. It's the last thing you needed. (((hugs)))

The end of the week is here and I am glad this week is over. I have done nothing but deal with insurance people. My car is going to be in the shop for 2 weeks. I do have a rental and I am a bit nervous to drive. I am just glad for the most part I am ok....My back is tender but at least it wasn't worse....I haven't had any flashbacks since I got into my accident....Life is tough right now...
