Struggling with Symptoms

A long day every day fighting symptoms. Feeling abandoned. Facing the full  terror of your trauma history. Nobody helped me for a really long time. They'll never apologize. Nothing you can do about that. Except to say they have to live with that. Nobody forced them to say and do cruel things. Now it's your problem.

Today, don't dissociate. You try and just sit quietly and focus on the space you're on and things around you. Nobody's there. Don't black out. The symptoms and pain will never go away. You just try to protect yourself as best you can.
