Yesterday, for various reasons, i ended up being a listening ear for a couple of people. At the time, it felt absolutely fine and i wanted to be supportive. But by night time, i felt totally burnt out and the impact of what I’d heard hit me like a ton of bricks!
I think it was probably impacted by the fatigue i was feeling anyway. I just couldn’t hold all their ” stuff” too.
I went to bed but slept fitfully. I woke up during the night. And today when i woke up i just feel like I’ve been run over. I am in a huffy mood and just want to withdraw.
I have therapy tonight and i don’t want to go. I don’t want to connect.
I said to my friend ” I’m a huffy crocodile today. ”
My friend suggested i draw it out- a bit of art therapy to try and move my mood on a bit.
I can’t say it’s helped to he honest. But it’s kept me busy at least.
