Hi there,

What a pleasant post for a Friday afternoon! Wish I were with you breathing the ocean air.

This website: ditto!

I'm grateful for my son, and grateful that my life is stable right now, in a world with so much turmoil.

Best wishes for a peaceful day!

Thanks, 1000miles,
I'm grateful for my warm puppy dog lying next to me.
For the sliver of sunlight peeking through the curtains.
For the peace I feel right now.

Grateful for ...

Solid roof in storm

Comfy bed

Soxy cat who strayed into my life about 4 years ago

Living in a town with minimal pollution

Access to health professionals who do care

Welfare system which is not ideal but means I have support to live independently

The brilliant rainbow colours sparkling this afternoon everywhere I looked

Sensitivity - empathy - all senses including feeling pain, and the awareness of boundaries
Onward to a safe community for all people in which to thrive ~ gentle hugs [if okay] ~ Fleur

Grateful for:
  • The understanding and support of the members of isurvive
  • My will to survive
  • The compassionate health professionals who are caring for me
  • Zoloft for stopping my racing mind and my anxiety, and the deep depression I've been feeling, and making me calmer and able to function
  • Xanax for providing relief from panic
  • The people in my life who I never would have known cared so much about me, if it hadn't been for the awakening of memories of childhood abuse and the ensuing crisis
  • My (sometimes) positive outlook
  • My home
  • My wonderful daughter
  • My husband's sticking it out with me, despite the fact that I've changed
  • A well written book
  • Art that is beautiful
  • Music that speaks to me
  • My understanding boss, who lets me go to therapy appointments during my lunch hour so I don't have to take time off work
