I published this post first in November 2015 and re-post it on that old date.
I have not taken part in SoCS in a long time. Thinking about my current situation though this week’s prompt just fitted what I wanted to write about anyway.
To worry or not to worry
That is no question for someone suffering from PTSD. Depression and anxiety are a part of the symptoms and against common believe we can’t just leave our problems at home or get over them. The wrecked up wirings and imbalances in our brains do not allow us to.
Yes, of course, we learn to cope and often work and be as we would be without our problems but then a trigger comes that we have not expected or that is stronger than our coping mechanism and we find ourselves in trouble.
It must seem to outsiders like having to deal with two different people: a normal, happy creature going about their business and then suddenly a raging maniac or sad, immobile mouse. And you never know when the person will change.
That’s probably how it feels for us too. At least I feel like that. I’m losing my way now.
Can’t remember my train of thought.
I am like this for days. I try to get the keys out of the fridge, go upstairs to do one thing and start three others and can’t even sit and read and read as much as I want to….
