Always Remember

Happy Friday!

It’s the weekend and I am excited to spend it outside checking out some community events that are scheduled! It is my last weekend to roam for a few weeks and I plan to enjoy it!

I feel so much better after my terrible night and am as ready as I will ever be, mentally, to spend a couple of days in a hospital bed next week before I come home to recover from my procedure scheduled for Monday. My overnight bag is even packed! I know I will be okay as I am determined to be.

It will be some time before I can post again after today, but I will when I can. I have to be at the hospital early Monday morning! Thank you! Your prayers and thoughts are greatly appreciated!

While PTSD can be terrible, learning to maintain those symptoms is very helpful. Doing deep breathing exercises, being mindful of the here and now, gratitude for all I have, and logical thinking helps me stay in the present, and not be stuck on the negative thoughts in my head. It works for me!

While I can’t eliminate the anxiety completely from my body, it no longer controls my behaviour and I can control my reactions by using all the tools I have gained. So, no matter what comes my way, I will manage as I am strong and resilient!

If you are determined enough, you can survive anything…

I am off, heading Downtown today to do some errands and I’ll take some time to sit by the Harbour and watch the water. It looks to be a beaut of a day and I want to enjoy some of it outside!

Happy Friday to you all and I hope you have a fantastic weekend!
