I an out of sorts in my waking hours..
Off kilter, like a squirrel who's had too much caffeine.
And at the same time, I am tired and just want to lie down.
I thought this would go away when I made peace with my past.
Trouble is, my past damaged my brain. Peace helps ease the emotional pain... But the cognitive impairment seems unaffected.
My counsellor told me that prolonged stress causes the brain hemispheres to stop talking to each other properly. Left brain gets on with life... Right brain encapsulates the trauma and you just keep on keeping on.
I'm walking the fine line between acceptance and hopelessness.
