Financial Responsibility

  21. Being financially responsible for myself so I don’t have to still be dependent on abusers and then hating myself for it. https://healingfromcomplextraumaandptsd.wordpress.com/2017/07/16/25-obvious-non-obvious-self-care-issues-complex-trauma-survivors-struggle-with-lilly-hope-lucario/ Judy writes: https://theprojectbyjudy.wordpress.com/2017/12/13/self-care-21-of-25/ Couple of years ago my World crash when I realized I do not have the physical stamina to hold down a full time high responsibility job.  I can…

Healing Naturally

I watched my mother down hand fulls of medications and later supplements in the quest for being healthy.  But she wouldn’t go outside for fear of the sun.  I saw my grandmother come to live with us with a small suitcase of medications.  They put her in the hospital to detox her and found out…

Sleep is self care

And a nightmare for me, literally.  Some nights I stay awake not because I am thrilled with what I am doing but terrified of letting my brain connect with my subconscious.  Nasty things in there and I work hard at keeping them separated. 19.

Mind over Matter

If you don’t mind, it doesn’t matter.  Seriously, I learned this doing dishes. 16. Not feeling like I’m a bad mom/housekeeper etc while I struggle with chronic pain and health issues. https://healingfromcomplextraumaandptsd.wordpress.com/2017/07/16/25-obvious-non-obvious-self-care-issues-complex-trauma-survivors-struggle-with-lilly-hope-lucario/ Judy shares her views on self-care challenge #16: https://theprojectbyjudy.wordpress.com/2017/11/30/self-care-16-of-25/ My health problems started when I was 15 years old.  I passed out at…
