It seems like some nights are just so much harder than others. Some are so very dark and lonely.

Yes they are. However, you are not alone.

You also are stronger that you feel at those moments and those times do pass.

These dark times are perfect moments for self soothing and compassion.

Thanks guys, just having a hard time. I keep pushing forward no matter. If it weren't for these boulders in my path the journey would be easier...lol

Daesin,

When I was first dealing with depression and PTSD etc... I could not focus and all that, so I started reading poetry again. Remembering some from school days.

I found it very inspiring for the boulders in my path. One of my favorites is the following:

Let us, then be up and doing,
With a heart for any fate;
Still achieving, still pursuing,
Learn to labor and to wait.

-Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

Peace and strength

Thank you Trina, that is a wonderful verse.

I find that the days/nights when my pain is really high I have a greater difficulty staying positive. Add limited and interrupted sleep and, well, some nights are worse than others. My family has become used to me being up all night. They know not to freak out if they find me folding laundry at 3am crying. Or going for a walk before sunrise or a million other coping techniques.

I have found these boards to be a great distraction and venting mechanism. I am so incredibly thankful for the advice and support.

So glad and relieved to hear that you Daesin, use coping skills how and when you need them. So very important. May your words inspire others on this forum.

Lack of sleep, as you both truely know can be the 'dragon from hell' following you around all day. Anything to catch a few hours of REM is gold in our books, right?

Take care, Peace

Yes, a dragon is right! Sleep makes things better, but coping skills keep you from slipping off the edge of the world.

On a high point, I did get the bathroom all squeaky clean. So the night wasn't wasted. I know one day this will all be just a memory. I will have killed, or befriended my dragon.

Living in a cave by the shore no doubt! Befriending is always so much nicer.

Make that a tropical shore...private and lush. I could certainly do that.

I know that I have to finish accepting this damage before I can befriend my dragon. I am blessed it isn't a flock! That task will be easier when the dragon quits setting me on fire, or I get some asbestos clothes. :-)
This will happen eventually, probably not tonight though.
