A Rough Start to Your Day

Didn't get much sleep last night. This morning, we had to fight really hard to not fall apart (due to symptoms). The worst seem to be body memory. Physical sensations of being raped, bruises from being pinned down and others.

You have to focus and fight back (even though it's not real). Now, we feel like we can focus. But at times the despair is really bad.

How do we deal with it? Compartmentalize. Also, you're not responsible for what others say and do. Which means protect yourself at all costs. Set up boundaries and use various tools to do that.

Do you still have body memory from being raped? How do you not get eaten alive by anger and frustration? Please pass on any constructive tips.

And have a nice day.
