Just got back from seeing the therapist. Now, it's lunchtime and finally we're feeling more focused again.
Symptoms are still hitting hard. And it feels like you constantly have to scream and focus to fight back so you don't disappear. All trauma survivors know this. You fight through this all day long. AND, go to work and deal with all the other stuff that comes up. Which is delibilitating.
Then again, you don't have a choice.
What helps to cope? Here's a partial list that at times seems to help:
Try for at least 8 hours of sleep a night. Not just an ideal. But it is possible to do it.
Several balanced meals throughout the day. Try using ginsing instead of 3 cups of coffee. Caffeine depletes your chi.
Pace your vitamins and herbs throughout the day. All at once maybe isn't the best way to go.
Check your email no more than 3 times a day. If somebody really needs to find you, they'll leave a voice mail. And so what if you don't instantly call them back. Get over it.
If you need to, turn everything off and go for a walk. Go to the store. Just kick back and look out the window. Then go back to it.
Hope these help.
