PTSD B-Day #7

Tentatively, I’d say that I’m feeling better right now. That kind of statement has a way of hitting me in the mouth later in the night, or at least, screaming in my dreams or inside my head or something.

I get a bit breathless if I don’t keep my mind on something else. I’m not sure if passivity (reading a book or a comic) is better than activity (programming and trying to make decisions that will not upend our part of the back end). I don’t feel like I can make very good decisions right now.

And yeah, the startle reflex is pretty bad right now. Imagine if I had that when I was driving. This morning the reflection of sunlight off a car moving in someone else’s garage freaked me out.

Hopefully tomorrow is normal, better, and tonight is not Revenge of the PTSD Episode.

  1. Hey, in case you’re checking your comments. Staying up with you all night here. I love your blog. I haven’t read all of it, got linked from someone at access-fandom. It is giving me some major clues. Thanks.

  2. Hello jae,

    I’m glad you like my blog. ^.^ It hasn’t always been about my PTSD, but that’s currently its function.

  3. I like the Tor columns too, and the Holmesiana (just had a bout of Holmes/Watson preoccupation when I found I had a collection with the Paget illos, and hadn’t actually seen the online stuff). I’ve been known to read the Tor site, and Making Light.

  4. jae,

    ^.^

    I hope to write more stuff for Tor.com and more Holmes stuff (and get back to tea real soon).
