A great article on HSP's.
I was told by a benzo wise psychiatrist that I was an HSP, I was born this way, my nervous system was different and that it was a 'garbage pail' nervous system. He told me that I would not do well on any meds. Too late! That didn't give me hope. He also said that if I had akathisia then I should stay ON a benzo forever. What kind of advice is that?!
I am scared. I hate being a broken record. But today is a little better. I got a facial ( my skin has broken out with horrific cysts and I look like a broken out teenager) and have been walking from room to room at home. I can't accomplish anything. I feel like a looping distracted teenager that can't attend to any real life responsibility.
So that's me today.
What about you?
I was able to calm my nervous system down when I got that facial today. That means I can work hard and CAN relax my body on it's own (well I am on a bunch of crap still but some days I can control it). So my goal this week is get into a meditative state for five minutes per day... NO MATTER WHAT. And turn social media off at night... It's been my friend and companion but I am going to keep working on that. Who knows... it may improve sleep!
