A long day of fighting symptoms. Don't let your guard down and then black out. You constantly have to fight back to keep some sense of being grounded. You have to protect your well being.
We're not crazy. We're not a threat to anybody. We're not insane. We're perfectly normal and dealing our trauma history as best we can.
Face it head on. The surest way to feel horrible is to not face your trauma history head on. As long as it doesn't endanger you in some way.
You have to fight back. You have to protect your well being.
You feel totally wiped out. But what else can you do?
