Re: Exhaustion

I am glad to hear that is the case @Tiny_leaf. Hopefully you can get some rest tonight so that you can wake up feeling better!

Re: Exhaustion

My brain has decided that I now spend night time reliving trauma and pacing back and forth.

But my body is still disabled so the pacing results in really painful legs and occasional collapses.

Re: Exhaustion

I'm sorry to hear you've been reliving trauma @Tiny_leaf Smiley Sad Feeling the need to pace back and forth absolutely sucks but I can't imagine what it's like for you with the pain and collapsing Smiley Sad Has this happened before? If so did anything help?

Re: Exhaustion

@Lost_Space_Explorer5 It has but I didn't have the physical disability then so it was a lot easier.

Also at the time I was more going through the initial trauma than reliving it...

Re: Exhaustion

awh that sucks @Tiny_leaf, so you're literally doing what you did during the trauma Smiley Sad Do grounding exercises help at all when you find yourself disconnecting from the present?

Re: Exhaustion

@Lost_Space_Explorer5 No they don't help because the present isn't necessarily safe either.

It could come back at any time and it feels like it's getting closer.

Re: Exhaustion

I have an appointment today but I don't think I can talk about the trauma thing yet.

 

And TW for eating:

I tried eating food and that made me feel sick so looks like I'm going to end up eating a lot less than I need today.

I was going to get some different food that I would've been able to eat but I was worried that it had too much sugar so I got something else.

Even though I know thinking about stuff like that isn't healthy for me.

 

Ugh and someone just called me "ma'am" so yay for dysphoria.

Is anyone around?

Re: Exhaustion

Hey @Tiny_leaf

I'm around Smiley Happy 

How was your appointment, did the appointment feel productive at all?

I'm really sorry to hear that your day was a bit shit, were you able to do anything to make you feel a bit better once you got home?
