I keep meaning to write this week and finish Trigger Warnings Part II, but I haven’t been able to bring myself to do the research for the links I need to complete a more factual look at Chronic Post Traumatic Stress Disorder and Post Traumatic Stress Disorder.
This week has been super busy for me. Pagan Pride Day in Athens happened and I found myself doing a 12-hour day volunteering and manning the booth for my Coven. The next day I taught a class for Fort Benning and my coven. I have also cleaned out my closet of clothes I can’t fit into anymore because menopause has struck hard.
Of course, I continue to do my studies for the Minister in Training Program with Circle Sanctuary. Run my coven. Continue to train Cas – a job that is never done. Feed my family. Keep up with laundry and squeeze in time to rest and recuperate. Keep up with the doctor’s appointments. All while the holidays, my twentieth anniversary, and another conference at my “real” job are looming.
Honestly though, writing about my trauma is very taxing. It is physically, mentally, and emotionally taxing. It is stressful. I know it is more stressful than I think when I find Cas hovering around me when I write.
So I am going to give myself the week off of writing and keep my head above water.
As well you should. You’ve taken on a lot – give yourself a break and a well needed respite. Breathe dear one.
