As a fellow survivor i feel where you are coming from. Yes there is going to be a lot of stress, this is a time of sleep and dealign with the aftermath of what has happened to you. You need to cut down on everything except the absolute minimum you need to survive thru the day and give your mind time to cope with what has happened. The mind has an amazing ability to heal, you just need to give it time to do what it needs to do. As the old saying goes "this too shall pass". But it needs time to do so. So if the dishes dont need to be done, dont worry about them. If you can sleep in, sleep as much as you can. Give yourself every excuse to allow your mind to rest.
You have had an awfull time, but time and loved ones and friends will help you get back to normal.
We are among your friends so post here as often as you need to.
