This week has been a much-needed week off. My clients are quiet and celebrating holidays, the one call I’ve gotten I didn’t answer nor did I return the voicemail as I’d previously sent notification that my office was closed. I love what I do, but doing it with PTSD is a constant challenge.
This year has been an exhausting series of challenges, and as I’ve navigated them I’ve begun to learn how to successfully work with PTSD. I spent a lot of the summer and fall in bed or at home trying to cope, trying to heal and trying to push through to a place that is…workable.
As I’ve transitioned out of October and all of the trauma memories that came with it, I’ve started to get some creativity and motivation back. I’ve been off meds for a year now, and it took a long time for me to adjust. I’m adjusted now though, I think, and there’s a lot to look forward to this year. And a lot of working with PTSD.
