Should anyone follow the Facebook page of our Checkerboard Aussies, they would have known by now Portia had her puppies last Friday. I am pleased to introduce ....
There is still plenty to do, but at least it was a good start, and you have to start somewhere to get going where you want to be.
Also today I began my first scheduled appointment with Trauma counselling. Let's just leave it that I didn't have a very good afternoon, and there had been many tears shed. I was very grateful that the counsellor is very educated on Bi-polar, and I did actually gain some further information on it.
Today I came away with knowing I have survived 40 years or so having Bi-Polar without harm to myself or others, having no diagnosis until recently. The counsellor pointed out how much strength I have had to survive all those years with what I had to go through.
As I said, lots of tears, but again, it is a beginning, and I have begun the struggle of hopeful healing.
I can't write anymore about it right now as I find it too emotional and difficult. Maybe another time.
This is all she wrote this day, Just North of Wiarton & South of the Checkerboard.
