I didn’t get up at 0400 hrs or earlier this morning. As a matter of fact, I slept in until 0500 hrs, which is almost unheard of! I had a rough night. Nightmares. My brain is trying to sort out the trauma memories and store them in the correct sequences and in the proper places in my memory, and it’s not working out so well. My brain has been going through this process for years, now, to no avail. Maybe, little by little, it’s happening. I don’t know. As far as management of my PTSD goes, it doesn’t work so well.
I went out to the field with my mom this morning and helped her a bit. I took a lot of photos, per doctor’s orders and just plain being motivated to do so (which is a good sign medication-wise), and read some of Neil Gaiman’s non-fiction writings. I tweaked my wrist, but I didn’t let my mom know that because she’d feel bad if she knew. Good thing she doesn’t have the internet!
I shot this cool photo of an inchworm sleeping on a tree leaf while I was out at the field this morning. Sweet dreams, little inchworm!
