Wellness Wednesday

My own computer was not cooperating, so I am writing this brief post at school. I think over the past week I have come to recognize and value simplicity in my life. I don’t mean to say simple-mindedness, I mean weeding out the fluff, unnecessary hassles and people in my life. I have gotten better […]

Wellness Wednesday

I have a short, but much needed break from classes. I don’t really feel like updating about how stressful my life is, so I think instead I will start with a dream interpretation and then a list of things to remember. Dreams Recently I’ve been having dreams about my dad. Earlier this week I had […]

Being completely present and not dissociated can be uncomfortable for me, I have a heightened startle response, I find people and things overwhelming. It’s […]
