In the spirit of celerating small victories and giving myself credit where it's due

I've stuck with therapy and continue to see consistent results
I searched for jobs, sent out resumes, filled out apps and interviewed
I now have 2 jobs that suit who I am rn (what I can currently manage,) one full time and one per diem
I researched careers and found one I believe suits me
I researched programs
I registered for school
I registered for class
I know when I'll take this entrance exam
I bought the comprehensive study guide for it and am now studying

I'm quick to discount my victories cause I fall into comparison and think well I 'should' already be there. But this is my journey alone and these are huge victories for me period. I know where I've been and what they mean to me no matter what anyone else thinks. Go me!

Miles to go before I sleep. Vale.

Know your ACE (adverse childhood experiences) score?
Sometimes, SA is a symptom of significant developmental, attachment or interpersonal trauma (emotional neglect counts). If you're still stuck after you've tried SA treatments such as CBT and exposure, research C-PTSD and see if it resonates. Here's an awesome resource. Complex PTSD: From Surviving to Thriving
