A couple weeks ago, I went to the Cheyenne Mountain Zoo, down in Colorado Springs. My friend Alex came with me. I’ve known him for seven years, more than, really. That day he told me, “This is the most confident I’ve ever seen you, certainly the most confident and put together out of all my friends.” That’s sat with me. In fact, another of my friends described my reaction as an ‘epiphany’.
Hey everyone. I took a bit of a break, though I’m sure you’ve noticed. Here are the highlights:
I attended the National Alliance for Mental Illness‘s national convention this week (so no roundup from me, kind of). It was hosted in downtown Denver this year with many presentations and exhibits spread across four days. I will admit that I did not attend today as there were not many things going on that interested me and it can be expensive to exist in that area for so many days.
I think I am in a bit of a downswing caused by stress and therapy. The funny thing about therapy, especially for post-traumatic stress, is that it can bring things to the forefront. I’ve always had a lot of ruminating thoughts, but they’ve been downright awful to try to handle lately and with the holiday, my worrywart self is off the charts.
