PTSD Appointment

Wednesday, February 17, 2016

So, today I had an appointment at the VA. I have to say, I was on fire! No, not anger, not even close. I made a profound discovery last night through to the morning ie: insomnia. This revelation are the words on the picture for today. For the first time ever, it occured to me that because of my high expectations of everything, I had doomed myself to living a life of pain and disappointment. But if I practice acceptance, I will find serenity. WHAT?!!! Are you kidding me? I've been alive for too long to have missed this. Let's just marinate on that for a while.

    I fear that would take the rest of my life. I think perhaps I should keep this transformation in house for now. Lol

    I totally understand. Today at the appointment my doctor was quick to point out my exceptionally high expectations of myself. I hadn't really thought of me yet. I was stuck on the pain I inflicted on others and how I should probably start apologizing

    I did acceptance once for my body image and low and be hold I lost weight without trying. Currently I'm OCDing about my weight and body image and I see nothing but muffin top and bat wings. And my cravings are a constant. 3 months into this.
