Lots of horrible stuff happening in the world today. Our advice? Unless it's for work, stay away. Your well being comes first.
We still struggle with abandonment and trying not to fall back into old dissociative rituals. Maybe it's kind of like alcoholics not relapsing? Some days I just turn everything off and stay home. I want to feel safe, and not bombarded by pain. Despite that, we still struggle with hallucinations, flashbacks, intense anal pain and more.
I still wake up in the middle of the night and check to make sure no one else is here. Usually, it's wake up every two hours or so, and then you can't go back to sleep. You have to protect yourself. Sometimes we just curl up and rock back and forth to reassure ourselves.
We just want to feel safe.
Set boundaries as best you can. Keep your side of things clean.
You're not responsible for what others say and do. They are.
Stay safe and warm.
