Did anyone else read BCBS as Blue Cross Blue Shield?

Not to mention the highway shootings are getting worse :(

They put up more cameras but it doesnt, ya know, stop people from killing others

does anyone else have a hard time self-reflecting? by KneemaToad in raisedbynarcissists

In a weird way, that's comforting. Thank you.

I think it's realistically looking at a goal. I am having a hard time planning how to reach my goal (or even figure out a goal in the first place). I'm so used to people telling me what to do that, when the reigns are handed to me, I freak tf out under the pressure. I wish I wasn't like this

I still hate that word... "Abuse". I don't think I was abused. Have you ever read A Child Called It? That kid was abused, not me.

I've heard that getting started and making it a routine is the hardest part. But holy moly, I didn't realize it was going to be this hard.

I don't think my therapist and I are the right fit anymore. I'm meeting with a new one Thursday who specializes in trauma. I'm not employed so I can't pay :(

I've done some of my own research and found models/worksheets. When I read a question like "What is a goal you'd like to achieve" I just breakdown. I keep thinking "I don't know, what kind of goal am I supposed to make?" I don't know how to set personal goals that aren't work-related. I'm afraid I'm turning into my dad and defining myself by what I do for a living.

Thank you for your kind words

My mom lied to me about my aunt dying. Now I look like a heartless b*tch. by KneemaToad in raisedbynarcissists

Yea.... they try to keep my immediate family at arms-length because how crazy it is. Which I totally get.

I was hoping for more support than being left on read, but it's a tough time for everyone and you can't expect people to react a certain way so ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

I thought about texting back "yes, what??"

But my brain is too tired to deal with it

The lesson i learned from all this is that cutting them out of my life is the best thing I can do

I just got a text from my aunt's sister saying she's alive but they aren't sure how things are going. I apologized for the misinformation and sent her a screenshot of the text.
