Anxiety and Pain

I woke in the fetal position and quickly stretched out of it. That position makes me go deeper into myself which can hurt more emotionally.

I'm anxious, in pain again and swollen. I know these are normal cymbalta withdrawal symptoms, so I try not to let it get to me too much but, I'm so anxious I feel like I need to run. I've got a lot of tools in my survivors bag so I'll have to pull out a few to manage this emotional and physical chaos.

Yesterday I had visitors which was wonderful. Two elders from the Kingdom Hall came to pay a nice, encouraging visit to me then an old friend stopped by. We had tea then scarfed down spiced chocolates. We watered all my plants and chatted up a storm. I really like her visits.

I don't expect visitors today unless my neighbor comes down for a bit. She's in a lot of pain, too and needs support.

Soooo, today is rough but I've got some tools to make it a bit smoother. It's time to start implementing them.
