Another day of fighting symptoms. But also, fighting to not let your guard down. It's like any addict. If you're not careful, you can have a relapse. Do we really want to have a dissociative relapse? Then you have no idea of where you are. You have to fight your way back to having some sense of being grounded. This also means massive stress on your system.
Do we really want that?
Do we really want pain?
Denial will make things worse.
Don't do it.
Do something else. Anything to not fall into that trap.
It's like all of our trauma pain is flooding out all at once. You have to fight back.
You don't have a choice. You have to protect yourself.
Don't fall apart.
