Today is a sad day.. 3 years ago today I lost a dear friend who was like a mother to me. She always offered unconditional love, comfort on bad days, laughs on good days & wisdom well beyond her years. She was the best.
Also going through some hard times. The Complex PTSD has been really difficult. The other day I had a lot of flashbacks, anxiety & depression. It can be so maddening, feeling like I’m living in the past. But, each time a flashback would happen, I looked at it objectively, like it was happening to someone else. It helped me to see that I definitely was not the one with the problem. It helps me to release the shame attached to being abused, & the shame attached to the effects I suffer because of it.
I’m really hopeful that all of these experiences that have been happening lately will help me in my latest book project. It will be a fictional story based on my life. Many of the abusive episodes I have experienced will be included, as well as ways I’ve found to deal with them. As incredibly difficult as this book is to write, my prayer is it will help other adult survivors of child abuse.
On a more positive note, the furkids are doing wonderfully. Although a bit late, spring fever seems to have kicked in around here- the kitties are getting into everything…lol They are chasing each other & having a good old time lately. Such a blessing, each & every one of them! 🙂
Until next time, Dear Reader, I’m praying for God’s love & blessings to overflow in your life. Take care!
