In Which I Have a PTSD Moment

Okay, that was interesting.

We have a lot of Knock-Out rose bushes, which grow faster than chin hairs, and flower profusely all summer. They make a great hedge, unless you don't need a hedge, in which case you probably don't have to worry about having a PTSD moment. At least, not involving roses.

I digress.

I was pruning the wild hairs (anything growing sideways is usually a good candidate for snipping) when I realized I'd worked myself in the middle of a six-foot tall, ten-foot wide hedge. As it turns, out, the research and development team for the Knock-Out rose neglected to address two things: smell (they got nuthn,) and thorns. Of the two, thorns is the bigger oversight.
I was stuck. Stuck like a sticker stuck on a stick. The thorns grabbed my arms first, then my torso, and the more I tried to unstick myself, the worse the situation got. I started to panic, then BAM.

Ski masks
Gun in my face
DON'T YOU LOOK AT ME, BITCH!

I called out, but the Mister was inside. Nothing to do but calm down and take it slowly, which after a moment, I did. My arms look like I lost a fight with face-ripper monkey.
So how 'bout THAT!?

Until now, PTSD was something I'd read about, but had never experienced. I was introduced to EMDR therapy shortly after the robbery, but showed no symptoms beyond "what could be reasonably expected," and didn't pursue it. I may have to rethink that decision.

The funny thing is, when I was purging my closet, and actually LOOKED at a ski mask: nuthin. Still, I over-purged, both in the garden and the closet. The garden will be fine, but the closet? Well, I guess I'll just have to fill that baby back up, won't I?

I've lost over 20 pounds. The Anxiety Diet is NOT for sissies. I have a feeling EMDR therapy can't hold a candle to retail therapy. I think I'll go to Macy's big sale right now and buy a new bra. That should lift my spirits, and some other things, besides.

  1. I hadn't looked at your blog in eons and was so sorry to read about all that's transpired. I hope the retail therapy provided some respite. A great play should emerge from all this. When it's ready for production, I would like to audition for the role of the deer.

  6. Penyakit kutil kelamin ini adalah bagian yang tidak bisa dipisahkan dari kemajuan jaman, dan hal seperti ini harus disadari dan tidak semua kutil itu terlihat sama. Sebagai contoh, beberapa kutil kelamin terlihat seperti benjolan atau mungkin mengangkat ruam iritasi kecil. Sementara jenis lain kutil terlihat lebih besar dan muncul dalam bentuk kembang kol.

Beberapa yang lain juga akan mendapatkan gejala berupa letusan, atau ruam merah yang berat. obat penyakit kondiloma penjelasan penyakit sipilis dan bagaimana mengobatinya silahkan kunjungi sekarang
