The nightmares, the flashbacks, feeling vulnerable and exposed, being triggered, being outcast by my family, feeling invisible, knowing I can't escape the memories, knowing more memories will come, accepting that I'll never be normal, feeling trapped in my own life.
I hate all of it.
My amazing boyfriend, knowing everything I've gone through and I haven't given up yet.
Those are the two things keeping me here, keeping me from losing it entirely. I can isolate events and aknowledge that I'm strong. When I don't feel strong anymore, I have Josh. That's my battle plan, plain and simple, and I'm sticking to it!
It's amazing how two things can outweigh a dozen so easily :)/>
