Not having a difficult day
« on: November 16, 2017, 12:45:18 AM »
Dear all,
I post when I'm in pieces and you offer support.

Right now I am feeling good.

Wanted to share that good news, I am completely affected by cptsd, yesterday was terrible but I'm all right today.

Tomorrow will likely be rubbish but right now is fine.

My life is certainly like a box of chocolates...

Cptsd is rather like being stuck on a yo-yo; up/down, rotate a little (my apologies to anyone who never played with a yo-yo). Funny thing how we know this, but keep hoping tomorrow will be the new dawn. Well, until it isn't...

Thanks for the reminder and who knows, maybe it does indicate that elusive dawn and the light will continue building.  :sunny:

Thank you all,

It is like a yo-yo woodsgnome, it takes little to knock me down, but a few little kindnesses or something positive happening and I feel good.

Today I had a little more fairly good news, I  am treating it as being miles better than the potentially bad news it could have been and enjoying that it represents a catastrophe avoided.

The catastrophe might have just been my fear taking over but to recognise my fear was proved wrong is important.

Maybe that is recovery, keeping yourself safe and trying to avoid knock downs while you regain strength.

I also need to avoid getting too euphoric at times, if I can modulate my emotions somehow I can try to maintain my balance.

I think I'm learning something.

Thank you all for your replies, you guys are special as you recognise that a day when you are not screaming inside is significant. If I can string enough good days together I might start to really get somewhere.
