Do You Trust Everything?

Another rough night with lots of nghtmares. What do you do when you wake up at 3 a.m. and can't go back to sleep. Turn on the radio and TV to have stimulus to keep you from dissociating.

Now, another interview tomorrow and other leads to cover as well. We're fighting depression as well. Some of your formerly favorite foods and other things just feel empty. Just try to keep your balance as best you can.

As for setting boundaries, continue to protect yourself as much as possible. Unless you have to deal with something, ask why am I doing this? What if you do something else? Is it worth it to possible dissociate for hours? Or, go the other way and keep some sense of balance?

Many survivors have the feeling of being steps ahead. If you would just listen to me and do what I say, this would be SO much easier. It's great to be aware and care. That being said, it's not your job to save the world. Also, to take on everyone else's trauma. It's too much.

Use your intuition. Do your homework and work off of actual facts. Not what someone else tells you is a "fact".
