One of the perks of Rapegate is I’ve gained a superhero named Sheila that I see every Thursday. As a matter of fact, Thursdays are now just referred to as Sheila Day in my world. She’s been my therapist since the saga of this soap opera turned shit show of my life began January 29, 2016.
The non-perks of Rapegate have been the PTSD, severe stress, adjustment disorder, insomnia and borderline clinical depression. BUT this gal is keeping me in check weekly and slowly putting my broken ass back together.
Sheila Day begins with carefully crafted armor, to assess the correct attitude.
And I love that my friends take notice, in keeping up with my struggles.
Thanks DC. I heart you.
I always leave Sheila a little more than shredded emotionally, mentally and sometimes even physically (examples: throwing up in my car after a particularly brutal session, stomach aches that cause me to shit my pants and in the rare case, full on panic attacks). PTSD is a real fucking humdinger. Thank you Rapist.
Some times I need complete alone time to cry in my closet after Sheila Day. Other times, I need companionship that First Mate was happy to supply last night.
One thing that always happens after therapy is the inability to get an appropriate night’s beauty sleep.
Naturally, I wake up more beautiful and less aged than the night before.
Due to the lack of seeing the inside of my eyelids for more than two hours requires copious amounts of coffee that I loathe all hours of the day. Then, my emotional hangover for the weekend kicks in.
Sometimes coffee turns into…
But it’s nothing the pink stuff can’t cure.
So, as my leg is bouncing to the ceiling here in Nashville today, you can bet your ass I’ll be doing a little relaxing later on.
Here’s hoping your FriYAYs are more fun than mine. Throw back an extra Skinny Pirate for me, pretty please.
I really feel for you, I hope that things will get better, you really deserve great things! As far as hand lotion, I love this Industrial Strength Moisturizer – AmLactin. I get it at Walgreens, and I put it on at night. It lasts all day. Mary
Hugs for you Megan! Stay strong, be well! 💕❤️👍🏻
