I was going to say that this last week can go fuck itself, but that's a bit too harsh. It's been really tiring and challenging but hey, I made it to Friday.
Still have a busy day tomorrow getting eldest moved to Uni (fun when you don't drive) and I have no doubt emotions will be fearfully strong, but it'll be good.
Spread your wings, son. ❤️

"We are looking for an experienced engineer."
"I've got five years' experience in the field."

Home from work. I need some quiet.
That was hard. 😕
Session four with my therapist this morning. Two weeks since my last session. Things are coming together, though other things remain difficult or strange to me. But hey, I'm not constantly alert or anxious so that's good.
It's only now I'm "missing it" that I'm beginning to understand quite how high-functioning fear and constant vigilance had become my norm.

I woke feeling uncomfortable, from unsettling dreams about one of the main sources of my trauma.
In these situations I usually wake up anxious or crying, so I'm getting the feeling this is positive. But it feels weird. My nervous system really is conditioned into certain responses that feel alien now I'm not experiencing them.
...and bed. G'night folks. ❤️
