While fighting continues tot rage around the world, it also affects people who are trying to survive severe trauma from it. You can set aside politics and other factors. What you then have is normal human beings who didn't ask to be subjected to horrible things. While we're getting things done, it's also a non-stop battle to try and keep some sense of balance
You get no break. You have o idea of what it's like to have one day with no trauma symptoms. You scream and fight to not fall apart. At night, more nightmares happen. Nobody will listen to you or help you. Even though it's a nightmare, you can't sit back and do nothing.
On the other hand, we have protection thru various benefits to help make sure that we're not homeless or go bankrupt due to being on disability. Got my Medicaid number early. The cards for this and other benefits should come in the next few weeks. Extra coverage will mean extra sources to go to to get the treatment that we need.
At times, we just sit and focus on trying to have some sense of being grounded. No noise or any other distractions. We scream and fight to not fall apart. Everything has to be screened. Many times, we have several sources live streaming, but we don't pay close attention. Just to have something in the background.
You can't sit back and do nothing.
