This week has been extremely hard for me.
I’ve been triggered most nights, and have been awake into the early hours.
I’ve been plagued with nightmares and had more than a few wobbles.
I’ve been writing poetry to try to let out some of my emotions.
Of course I had to send each poem to my therapist. I always send her what I write.
This afternoon around lunchtime, she texted me.
I’ll be seeing her tomorrow morning, so I did not expect a text from her.
She said she’d gotten all of my poems, and she’d read them all.
She said “I hear you”, and, I am really looking forward to our session tomorrow.
I felt as if she’d wrapped me up in a huge bear hug.
It was so nice to get a text from her validating my pain and trauma.
I instantly felt better after receiving her text.
I texted her right back, saying that today was a good day, and that I couldn’t wait to see her tomorrow.
A real gem, and she’s definitely a keeper!
