Oh, thatís great news Kizzie!  Thanks for letting us know that things are on more of an even keel.  Now you can get to the matters which need to be handled in the present day.

Be safe and carry on. :hug:

Happy we're settled in our new house and the tension between H and I has subsided.  Way too much stress for both of us, some of which I did not see coming. His intense reaction to moving & retiring was really hard on both of us.

Maybe as a result of all the stress I was drifting down into despair again, much like when Trump was elected. Just too much in the news that scraped against any resiliency/objectivity I had built up.  Right now there just seems to be too many stories of abuse of power, greed... all things things that bring the rage and powerlessness  of having to endure the NPD behav of my parents to the surface.

Stopping watching the news has helped.  Nervous about starting therapy this week but hopeful it will also help.  I still feel a lot of pain and fear obviously so anything I can do to deal with that is good. Will ask about EMDR to shift out of this as it helped last time. They are quite versed in CPTSD though (can't believe how difficult it is to find T's who treat CPTSD), so hopefully they will have some good ideas/strategies.

Glad things are settling down. Moving and retirement are two big stressors. Understand about feeling nervous about starting therapy. Hope it goes well and you feel heard, understood, and safe with new T.

Congratulations on a new home. I hope this new place will be a good place for you. And I'm glad to hear that the stress has settled down a little from after the move. Moving is such a strain!

I hope the new therapist will help you through some healing and help you get to the next step in your recovery and healing.
