2 years ( Father’s Day milestone) YAY 😃


[La...]

Recommended Posts

Hello everyone! I’m happy to announce that today is Father’s Day and my 2 year milestone.  ;):thumbsup:

 

Although I’m not completely healed yet I’ve made notable progress. My main three symptoms that are still hanging around are 1) boatiness 2) pulling sensation and 3) ataxia episodes of being unbalanced. These three have improved over the past two months….meaning they are milder and definitely shorter in duration. Now I can push through them with limitations as before all I could do was stay in bed. One of my close buddies on here sent me an awesome YouTube link of someone else recovering from benzo. In the video, she said there’s a saying often used as follows:

“ Seeing is believing.” She said in this recovery we all should flip that around to “ I believe it so I WILL see it.” That was such an impact to me! Because in this recovery, we have such a roller coaster ride of symptoms, it’s more often than not that we start letting our belief in our healing fade. This is especially true after we hit such milestones as 2, 3, 4 years. We mentally set a highly hopeful timeframe based on this or that but when that time comes and we are not healed then we are much discouraged. She said not setting yourself up to be disappointed is best. Just simply believe in your healing and celebrate seeing it unfold no matter how long it takes. So, I’m going to continue watching my healing unfold as I’m a caterpillar turning into a beautiful butterfly….those gorgeous wings that will set me free is worth the wait! 🦋 I’m looking forward to seeing bigger strides in this next segment of this process. Don’t get me wrong, there’s nothing wrong with hoping we will heal by X amount of time…. I certainly hope mine is very very near. I do believe it’s in the making so I WILL SEE IT. And you will too!  ❤️❤️❤️❤️

You've come so far LadyDen and the whole time you've kept a positive attitude and lifted others up through your pain.  You've had personal life challenges while going through this but your strength has shown through.  I love this quote and know it needs to be stated over and over again because I was guilty of putting unrealistic expectations on my recovery, artificial timelines that had no relation to my personal journey.

 

Good for you for reminding us that we're all individuals and what makes us unique also determines our fate.
