    The healing can begin... i think i am almost at a point of building structures now...

    I also somaticize my pain. I feel it very physically, even though I'm not often in my body, far too often in my head. Good on you for working your routines and programs, including physio! Go DDQ! Go DDQ!

    I Hate Myself Today

    Yes, you can let things be different, now. Powerful realization, even though it's hard to actualize. Once you get there, though, you realize it was easier than you ever imagined. Just let yourself be, just be. Eres una persona buena. Eres. ¡Muchos abrazos, guapa!

    What Are You Grateful For Today?

    Grateful for the newly recharged desire -- and willingness and energy -- to eat healthy, including cooking at home again. Grateful for physical and emotional pain. I'm alive and I'm human and I'm doing the best I can. Grateful to know that.

    I Don't Want To...

    I don't want to disappoint my wife, but I also don't want to have to tell her certain things that she would like to know. I don't want to be seen and known. I don't want to deal with her emotions.

    Acts Of Kindness

    ^^^ So true ... in some ways, acts of kindness are a selfish act on my part because I get so much out of it and feel better about myself and the world.

    Acts Of Kindness

    When we feel so consumed with our own pain, doing acts of kindness for others can give us perspective and keep us engaged with the world. It distracts me from my own pain and reminds me I'm part of humanity, and my suffering is also part of the human condition; there are a lot of people...

    Acts Of Kindness

    I totally agree with @GrayOwl. A sincere act of kindness is a good thing, even when rebuffed. What's more important is that you (1) were not patronizing or infantilizing the person, and (2) that you respected his wishes and acted accordingly. You're a good, kind, compassionate person, Mal. Don't...

    I'm sorry the melatonin didn't help your sleep. I hope you're able to find ways to get rest and rejuvenation, even if it's not actually through sleeping. ¡Cuídate bien, Mariaaaaaaaaaaa!

    What Are You Feeling Today? Not Thinking, Rather Feeling! Can You Identify Yours?

    Ditto what @Heather said. I did a journal page that said "The best way to fix a mistake is to accept imperfection." You're human, giz, and its part of the human experience to make mistakes. Go easy on the shame.

    What Are You Grateful For Today?

    @Friday, consider going natural after you shave your head. My wife did, and it's the best decisions after years of caustic perms trying to wrangle her hair into a socially acceptable 'do. She now has locks that we cut once every couple of years to keep from injuring her neck (those f*ckers are...
