Thanks [...] - I like the one on PTSD. I have worried that I will never recover from the absolute trauma of this process. What she talks about makes sense.
Weíre med injured - itís causing the main problem at least.

Iím down to 2.4mg of Valium and Iím in a good window. Itís such a nice reminder that Iím still ďinĒ here. I have had 2-3 days where I have actual interests in hobbies, I want to go out and do things, I donít have to play mental games to avoid unpleasant thoughts.

I have gone for drives, worked on projects at home, journaled and drew some! Music sounds good again. 2 weeks ago I couldnít tolerate music at all. Now it feels like my soul is awake. I did a yoga class and I felt like I was actually in the room. I usually feel like Iím on another planet and completely DP/DR during class. So, all that is to say, I know weíre still in here somewhere. I anticipate the window closing and diving back into a rough patch. I just decreased my dose 2 days ago. But I donít think weíre broken forever. (At least in my current state of mind 😂)
Itís so nice to come up for air every now and then.

Thanks [...] - anxiety is one that comes and goes for me. When itís the main problem it is so exhausting. Iíve been trying to get out and do more and it truly does help. I make myself go to one yoga class a week. Sometimes I cry all the way through it, other times itís like a breakthrough to a new attitude and it changes everything. The bigger pool idea makes sense, and it works for me some days. Other days, no chance Iím going out 😂

Hi Tree,
You're welcome.  I am so glad Jennifer is posting videos they have been so helpful.  So thankful you don't have to deal with anxiety every day though I know other symptoms are probably just as bad.  Its great that you go to yoga I think making yourself get out is a good thing  I just haven't gotten that far yet...if I don't have to leave the house I don't but I do know it helps.  I lost my mother last May I was basically her care taker but after she passed I didn't have to go anywhere so I just stopped and its not been good.  I am so sorry that sometimes you cry through yoga bless your heart but at least you are trying and hooray for the breakthroughs on other days.  You have come a long way on this journey.
Sending you hugs and prayers ❤🙏
