Lately I have felt foggy.
I think this is what trauma does.
It makes me feel foggy and confused and it creates a lot of self-doubt.
Pinocchio started therapy last week. He is going 2 times a week and it is a sacrifice for our family. It is a 3 hour round trip from start to finish and during that time my other two children are on their own. It is also the MOST expensive therapy I have every paid for, so it becomes a financial stress on my husband and I.
But this is what we do as parents right?
I don't know actually.
But it seems like the next right step and that is my focus right now.
ONE STEP AT A TIME
Because this time feels so trying and so heavy I am really focusing on self-care and dailies. For those that are interested, here are some examples of what dailies are:
Keep a Journal
Repeat Daily Affirmations
Personal Development - start a new hobby
take a community education course
express creativity such as art and/or poetry
Recovery Reading or Step-Work
Exercise - walk, bike, swim, hike, run, etc...
Nutrition - plan meals
avoid junk food
Rest and Relaxation - get adequate sleep
limit TV time
Scripture or Religious Reading
These are my dailies for the week...
