Tired of Processing

A time for everything, right?

I've been processing stuff almost non-stop for about a month. I just restarted therapy about 3 weeks ago. I've got an appointment in about an hour from now.

But I'm currently all processed out. It's almost like writer's block. I've simply hit a wall. I just want to not think about stuff for a while. I just want to nurse my cold and pretend for a couple days that I'm normal and not afflicted by C-PTSD.

I plan to tell my therapist this past week was a wash. I didn't do my homework. Between Thanksgiving, being hyper-aroused 3 days straight, then coming down with a head cold, diaphagmatic breathing was just not high on my priority list.

That's all. Nothing profound here. Just a day in the life of a fellow sufferer.

Maybe I'll process more next week.

We'll see.

Gotta give ourselves a break sometimes. Especially when we don't feel good physically. All I can concentrate on is one thing at a time. Cold=priorty Processing, pbftttt , later man!!!

Thanks. Yes, the cold makes it easier to distract from my usual misery. Lol.

One thing at a time indeed!

Thank you,

It happens. Our brains aren't usually all that excited about processing, processing, and more processing. Mine takes a vacation without my consent after very much of that. And having a cold is a great excuse to take a vacation, anyway. 🐳

Yup. I'm just taking it easy, nursing my cold. Processing can process another day. I'm on vacay! 🥳

Oh! BTW, lol at me. 🤣 It's SUNDAY. Ooops! Sometimes I lose track of time. That ever happen to you? Days just disappear. Or at least I don't pay attention to what day it is as much since they are all the same to me. Anyhooo, my therapy appointment is tomorrow. How funny.

I bet my therapist will get a good chuckle out of this.

One of the most useful sessions I had with my T was when I went into a session to tell my T enough is a enough. Sometimes you have to take a step back. Perfect something before moving on like getting physically healthy.
