Birthday this week, first one alone
« on: February 12, 2018, 08:45:46 AM »
So it's my birthday this next Sunday, and it looks like I'll be spending it by myself for the first time in my life. I'm going to try to reach out to a few people I've gotten to know since I moved,  but I'm not holding out much hope that they'll be available. To be honest, I'm a little bit worried because I'm quite unstable right now and if my Christmas and New Year are anything to go by, I really shouldn't be spending significant days by myself.

I can understand your worry! I hope you drop in here on your birthday, then at least you won't be completely alone. We care about you, even if we're not IRL people.  :hug:

Definitely echoing Blueberry, and Three Roses.

We can even throw a partyom the healing porch.  I am a great baker, what kind of sweets do you like??  ;D
Happiness turned to me and said - "It is time. It is time you forgive yourself for all of the things you did not become. It is time to exonerate yourself for all the people you couldn't save..Time to accept you don't have to be who you were a year ago. It is time to believe that you're worthy of me"

When it comes to trauma, time does NOT heal all wounds. It is deeply embodied in our mind, body & spirit & requires compassionate, knowledgeable treatment & self-care.

If we want more/better trauma informed treatment & services, we must advocate for ourselves when & where we can.

Songbirdrosa, I will certainly make some fresh ones in the healing porch Sunday. They will be perpetually fresh and plenty to go around. If anyone does not like tarts I will have other sweets for you as well. I can make some cupcakes, and cookies as well  ;D
