    So I’ve been at this for a full week now. All I’ve done is changed my thinking from “being a chronic ill hopeless case” to being “perfectly fine, just storing repressed emotions.” And holy moly! For the first time in a very long time, I want to be alive again.

    Now that I’m not telling myself what a problem I am that needs to be fixed, there’s nothing to fix. Since I’m not googling symptoms and treatments anymore, I have so much more free time. And I’m SO BORED :p It’s amazing!

    The energy I put towards googling and treatments, I’ve put towards living life. I’ve journaled 60 pages. Started getting creative in the kitchen. Accomplished things I put off for months. Reading for leisure. Caught up on tasks around the house. Picked up a hobby. Been more motivated at work. Less anxiety.

    I wish I could say it cured me. Having CPTSD, it’ll be a long road, but one I’m looking forward to. Even if this doesn’t help my chronic symptoms and pain, it’ll sure help the other aspects of my life haha.

    This is so great!

    I love this:
    Such a simple and perfect way of reframing it for yourself - totally going to steal it!

    Hope you continue enjoying the beautiful boredom...!
