No changes in medications. His only concern was my waking up from nightmares, but my mood seems pretty even. His words, "You seem pretty damn stable, if a bit raw." I told him about the last few days, the rage, the memories coming back to me, the PTSD kicking my ass. His response, "I could drug you to numbness but that's not going to help you. It's about time you got angry, even furious, and you need to remember to heal. So no changes in meds. Just call me if the sleep issues continue and I'll see you in 5 weeks." I make it sound cold writing it down, but his tone was compassionate. He asked me when my next tdoc appt is and said he was going to suggest to her we meet weekly for a while. (It's been two weeks in between due to schedule conflicts.) So I just have to keep an eye on my moods and sleep and call him if I need him. I walked out feeling pretty good. Oh, and he said, as I was leaving, "welcome back," with a big smile. I laughed. I am back. This last year of insanity seems to have come to an end. So I just have to keep moving forward.

Sounds like your progress is ongoing. Happy for you.. keep up the hard work.
Snowflakes gently floating from the sky just dusting the ground. Then it picks up bigger fatter flakes cascading from space at a faster rate. From a dusting to a trace. Then the deluge comes. Oh what joy. Watching everything slow to a crawl, then a stop. Step outside and even with things moving it is quiet. It is a giant muffler the earth is wearing. Causing everything to be muted.To be calm.

This is a win, Ducky! :)
. . . all times I have enjoyed
Greatly, have suffered greatly, both with those
That loved me, and alone.
