I've only been around for a few days, and yeh, a tiny bit of me feels the tiniest bit crazy writing this post.
I'm not ready to tell my story yet, but I hope someday I will be. I just wanted to say hello, introduce myself...
I'm Hope. It will have been 7 years in September, and I am only now dealing with the past, or even wanting to.
I never expected so many triggers, and things i didn't even know were related to my attack I'm now finding out were. I wonder if maybe I'm paranoid. It's been on my mind all day today (Not sure if it's because I was in and out of pandy's all day or because it's summer) and I'm wondering if it's possible to think too much about the s.a. (One thing you'll probably notice about me pretty quick, I think A LOT)
It all feels like too much for me some days, on days like today. It makes me want to sweep everything back under the rug, to not deal with it and to hide in bed until I've forgotten.
So, besides that venting bit, I'm a writer. I have a chronic illness. Currently, confused, a lot, and hurting like crazy. I never knew healing was going to be this hard.
So yeah, that's me, in a nut shell. Feel free to come join me on my healing journey.
Hugs are appreciated, all the time!
