Today’s Update- March 24, 2014

Good morning, Dear Readers!  I thought I’d post an update..

Before I say anything else, I’d like to apologize for being so absent lately.  The C-PTSD has been flaring up badly.  I think because of knowing I’ll be seeing my mother soon.  She’s also called me more than usual lately (the silent treatment is officially over for now).  I have been fighting incredible anxiety- so much so that I’ve developed some eczema.  UGH.  I’ve also been depressed, & I can’t focus!  I’m so forgetful, it’s downright pathetic.  So writing in this blog has been a rather daunting idea.  Getting through each day is hard enough right now.

Also, I recently received an invitation to be a guest blogger!  I’ve never done this before, so I’m not sure what to expect, yet I’m looking forward to it.  The blog is about encouraging those with anxiety, depression, addictions & self-harm.  Not quite what I usually post about, but still related.  It should be interesting working with this blog & I’m looking forward to it.  I can’t say how often I’ll be posting there, because, as I told the lady I spoke with, with having C-PTSD, I get overwhelmed very easily.  Thankfully her reaction was “Even once a month would be wonderful!”  YAY!  Someone who understands!  Always a good thing!  I’ll try to post more than that, hoping for once a week or so.  Anyway, here is the link to the blog:

  1. Sorry things have been hard lately. I understand fully how this journey is up and down, cycles around and when it’s bad, it’s really hard.
    You will be a wonderful guest blogger.

    Cyn, My power has been off for going on 3 days now. I’m very sad to hear ur symptoms have been so hard on you. The brain is an amazing, but tough customer. I’m so mad. Two surgeons have already turned me down to fix my foot for fear the crps will spread. What they don’t understand is use of ketamine for CRPS for ANYTHING. He’s a podiatrist, not

    Oops, wasn’t finished. I got turned down for Medicaid bc I make $6 too much a month. I try to GET help, and then I’m told Medicare won’t pay my premiums anymore, so I get $95 LESS, a month, now- but still $6/mo too much?! I’m really sick today and have a 3:15 appt with surgeon in my medical group. Trying to convince him to fix Mt foot, or I’ll b in a wheelchair forever. I’m just sick of everything. My neighbor let me charge my phone last night, and they said the power wud b back on today. Email and texting kill my battery, so I’m going to make some more calls to our ass backwards govt. Sorry I’m in a bad space, and I know u understand frustration with lack of family help. I’ll msg u tomorrow and let u know what surgeon said. Love, Denise
