Well after two intense months of therapy, I’ve been discharged by the mental health team. What happens next, I don’t know. I have been given some new tools to help with the anxiety and PTSD.
The therapy was hard going, I had to work really hard to face the painful images of why happened. I alway thought that therapy would be just like the therapist saying everything is ok now. It’s not like that. I had to put in the hard work.
Facing those images and turning them in to something positive, sitting with those images and having to see his face painful. But now I see him as a sad pathetic person.
I now see both my younger self and my adult self as a warrior and a thriver.
At the moment I’m just sitting with the feelings and trying to make some sense of the processing.
