Today I am doing my best.
So are you.
I have had trouble sleeping soundly, and took a sleep aid last night. It actually had the opposite effect, raising my heart rate. I did sleep but wow, I am tired.
It made things hard this morning, and I had to rush to get to therapy. I am so glad I have a great therapist, and it helped me get in a better place.
I am — like most of us — a person who needs other people to help regulate my central nervous system. Being kind to myself means, in part, being sure that I spend time with people who are good for me, supportive of me, and accept me as I am.
If you need help, let me know.
