this new now

Post by there » Tue Jun 23, 2015 11:26 pm

Challenges fly in my face all the time. I'm aware of wanting not to run and hide, or to create much diversion. I just feel like I haven't done much with my hypnoT certificate. Ok, stop beating yourself up, there. About that, I did finally find and speak to the librarian in charge of special programs, and she said to email her my ideas. I have been working on presenting a workshop on self-hypnosis at my city's library. Now if I can just find my notes.....

So much disorganization in the hotel suite (apartment) here and has been for long time. Fortunately, I have an organizer person who comes weekly to push me some. She's great at conversation. Today while I was doing a bit of cleaning the bathroom, and dishes, I realized that it's helping. I was feeling organized as I put plastic forks and spoons away in the drawer after I cleared it out a bit.

I hate the word 'disorder' that's attached to illness. It got to me , and has impacted my functioning. But NO MORE!!!!!
A diagnosis is It's not something I need to cling to now, like I once did. Even if I don't call myself ANYTHING, I have a place of peace in my mind. I feel it's been growing as a result of healing work, self-care, meditation, self-hypnosis, music, art, anything I can find online from EFT to sounds of wind chimes!

I just don't carry all the trauma of adulthood in my mind now. Helluva lot of work to get to this point, most of it my own and not from T, and some good luck, too, I guess. I'm not as cowed as I was. Maybe some of it is maturity. :)

Hi there,

I'm so happy that you find yourself in this position...you're right we still have our moments but I doubt there is anyone who gets 100% peace and happiness. My hope is that this continues for you and that others find hope and strength in your words. Thank you for sharing.

Thank you, ajei,
I need to remember to just breathe now, when I'm working to progress. Oh, maybe working to progress IS the progress...lol :lol: :)
