Wow, so that was an intense 48 hours. Just a shout out to indicate I’m ok. I did some major self care today. I got fingers and toes done for a fancy wedding coming up this weekend, and it included tons of massages.
Sometimes massages can trigger me – especially in a nail salon. They can feel out of place, and forced on me. But today was nice. The women were soothing and they always asked before they touched me. There was a lot of reframing the self talk in my head, but it got easier, and I relaxed into it.
I’m grateful for days like the last two, followed by days like today because they prove to me that recovery is possible as long as I soldier on.
Speaking of that – Thank you to all the veterans and current soldiers who are or have protected me. I am sorry that your job brings so much pain and suffering to you. You are heroes.
