"Battling the headache because of a busy Christmas..." - Ed's Survivor Story

"Battling the headache because of a busy Christmas, and fighting racing thoughts, due to fears of the ghosts of Christmas’s past. But I figured I’d passed the worst, I could relax, and the symptoms of the anxiety, exertion, and depression would dissipate fast. Now we have a category two typhoon headed this way, and the headache has become something so much bigger than before. Add in the fact that from my injury, I don’t always think before I speak or act, and so I messed up, and hate myself even more. So now I’m unable to sleep, because my mind’s gone into turbo mode with the racing thoughts, as the headache is killing me. So after two days of pure heaven, I’ve fallen down to the seventh level of hell, and there’s no ladder out that I can actually see. I’ve taken some ibuprofen, but to be honest, it’s a kind of like putting an adhesive band-aid on a compound fractured limb. All I can really do, is meditate, write it out, and distract myself, and of course pray as well, I hope it gets answered by Him. I know I’ll get through this all somehow, I’ve handled much worse and lived, I just need to remember, “this too shall pass”. But until this storm outside, and in my brain eventually fades, I’ll be hating life, and myself as well, for being a stupid ass." -Ed Steeves, TBI survivor ••• ➡️Your quote can be featured!
