I’m peeking my head ever so slightly out of the sand again. One of the stronger internal folk has done the day-to-day interactions since I went inside a few days ago, and I’m very tentatively becoming more involved in things again. At least it was a very short time this go round. I’m at a point in my life, too, where there are external people I can almost always be present around, so I miss less. When I’m around these people I can relax and catch up on whatever I’ve missed while ‘away.’
In any event, I’m back now and attempting to put into place the strategy a few of us worked out while I was inside. I’ve been trying for most of my life to get myself to a safer environment, and it’s frustrating for me and those who’ve tried to help me that I always end up back at square one. I’d say ‘all things in time,’ but I promised myself I’d scream at the next person who told me that. And it always looks odd when I scream at myself. 😉
Good to be back.
