The Road Back – Part 2

Hey wait!  I haven’t seen Part 1 yet. Technological blip. I have not figured out the menu thing yet. Is there a 101 for that?

Okay, so for the lead up to this continuation – go to The Road Back – Part 1. When you are done there come back to Part 2. Sound confusing, trying living in my brain 24/7. 🙂

So … Part 2… Yes, I jump right in!

So now… my hesitancy in spelling out where I have been at is more based on I do not wish this to be another poor me sob story, but one of facing the battles head-on, standing firm and courageously; continuing to stand despite the raging war going on around me and yes inside at times too. But like someone who has not traversed the same land and waters we have experienced, we can feel someone cannot relate unless we know what they have been through. We all have a story to tell. Our story. We each want to be known and loved unconditionally. To be known. Perhaps me actually typing it out and speaking with my finger tips will aid in my own healing. And for you too, to know you are not alone, that others have gone before you and walk with you this same path. Together we can make it.

As I am led to divulge, I will get into this thing called my story. In the meantime…

This journey of recovery will include various things as I have alluded to in my Home and About pages. So far, the plan I have will be writing and working through various life skills: Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT), Wellness Recovery Action Plan (WRAP), Expressive Arts Therapy (another fancy term for doing art in its various forms – one of which is this blog), keeping an ongoing and building towards a “1001 Grateful Things” list – (I feel a Julie Andrews’ song coming on – These are a Few of My Favourite Things, …think… “The Sound of Music”). I will be posting some short stories – both fictional and non (Tales from the Ward) and some a mixture of the two, a bit of poetry (yes, a shocker for me too), and anything that tickles my funny bone.

Blink and it’s gone. I forgot where I was going with this… something to do with recovery. In the meantime… if you have still not seen the post “The Road Back – Part 1” categorized as “Recovery,” follow the arrows ⇒⇒⇒. It’s a bit melancholic perhaps, but then again, it was 3:30 a.m. when the Lawrence Welk bubble-spewing screen saver kicked in and I finally pulled up the covers.

And as for this page, a little more construction I think is in order.
