I’ve been catapulted with traumatic memories for a few years now and have been wondering why. I’m realizing that part of the reason is that my parts are trying to communicate with me, and this is one way that they do it. I know that some of them wanted to leave AA, and others want me to slow down and really focus on getting better from Lyme Disease. I think that the part’s introduction to my system (at least letting me know they are there) has been positive for me. Since they started showing themselves, I’ve left AA (which I see as a positive), gotten the correct medical diagnoses, am learning how to rest, have started new hobbies like yoga and writing, and am basically doing better overall, even though it doesn’t always feel like it. So I’m glad that they are there and showing themselves!
I didn’t end up exercising yesterday. By the middle of the day, I was feeling pretty terrible with a headache, muscle aches, and ear pain in both ears. I made a doctor’s appointment today to get checked out again. David isn’t feeling too well either, so we must have caught something. He’s been having headaches and muscle aches. I’m going to a clinic that offers covid-19 testing so I may get tested for that again.
I do feel better this morning so want to do some gentle yoga, but at the same time wonder if I should if I was that sick yesterday. We’ll see. I need to learn to take care of myself and rest when I am sick.
At least I’m learning to be okay with resting. That’s a good thing!
Oh the other thing is that my friend, who has a rescue, has adorable kittens at her rescue right now. There is one that I really want. But, we already have four cats, so I need to pass on this one. But it’s really tempting to get kittens for me right now. I think I have baby fever after the miscarriage I had a few months ago. At least I realize it.
Anyways, thanks for reading! Feel free to comment below.
