Happy new year world,
I love hitting the new year running, 2020 probably taught many of us that there's no time to waste hahahaha. One minute dance and the next minute GLOBAL PANDEMIC.
Imagine the panic, and then the double panic for those already living with a mental illness like myself. I almost had a relapse again, PTSD sucks. But, I know recovery is possible because I have recovered to a point where I really don't look or feel sick...am not even on meds any more.
It is true we might become kinda weird lol...self care is sometimes viewed as selfish by some especially those who had been used to having you their 'riddle' at their beck and call. The highly extrovert me I once masked myself to be, has now become what I'll call an "extroverted introvert".
Many factors contributed to my being diagnosed with PTSD, top of which was a very toxic, abusive and volatile marriage. It'll soon be 11 years since I abandoned that 'shame & sham' of a marriage.
I am free, I am recovered, and I am loving life enough to unreservedly share my journey with you all, to inspire, motivate, and encourage someone.
