Today is a good day.. I should say, right now is a good moment.
This morning I had that all too familiar chest pain panic fire feeling I get from benzo w/d. I cried with a friend. It lifted a bit. I felt almost almost normal... just a glimpse of me again.
I connected with a fellow traveler who assured me I wasn't insane. It's good to release all that is inside and share with another. When things are rough I say, "right now, it's like this"... and when things are neutral or calm I say "right now, it's like this.." Trying not to attach to either the 'good' or the 'bad' days or label them.
