Has it really been 2 months?

You know that feeling when you want to write, and you know you should write, but you have no idea what to write? Well, that is where we are right now…

We were in the hospital again. May 7th – 19th. Nothing spectacular. We went before we did anything to hurt ourselves. We went to IOP on the 7th, with the knowledge that we may not be coming home that day. After speaking with the therapist after group, it was decided that we should go and we were allowed to drive ourselves over to the hospital. Our medication was adjusted, and now we are in the waiting period, giving a new medicine a chance to really start working.

After the hospital, we went back to the trauma focused IOP. Our goal is to finish. Actually finish. We need to see how we do in the real world with just our individual therapist. Without intensive care.

With our individual therapist, we are starting EMDR. Eye movement desensitization and reprocessing. “EMDR is a psychotherapy that enables people to heal from the symptoms and emotional distress that are the result of disturbing life experiences.” (EMDR Institute, emdr.com) At https://www.emdr.com/what-is-emdr/, there is a description of how EMDR is done, if anyone is interested.

On another note, we had been diagnosed with narcolepsy. We may have finally found the right medicine, but we may still need some tweaking on the dose. Not quite sure. We skipped it today, because we woke up really late, and we have been exhausted all day. We did manage to fight taking a nap, though. However, bedtime is right around the corner, as we are yawning every few seconds at this point…

So, with that, we will catch y’all next time! Have a great day
