Being April Fool's day I should have expected as much. I awoke to someone knocking on my door after 3 in the morning when I was sleeping. I hate being woken after just getting to sleep since it takes me so long to fall back to sleep. In the morning I had to get up early to see my counsellor, which was a good session but one which left me very drained. I left there feeling the same age as when the abuse happened (has this ever happened to anybody?) but I did my best to hold it together knowing that I had to go to work right after. I work in a homeless shelter and today being the first of the month is cheque day, meaning there will be a heightened level of craziness on the street since money in the hands of alcoholics and drug addicts is never a good thing. By the end of the night there were 3 physical assaults for which police had to be called, including one on myself where someone who was completely cracked out decided give me a smack. Anyways that's the kind of day its been. Thanks for listening.

A hot bath? Big mug of hot chocolate, maybe a sprinkle of marshmallows on top? dimmed lights, good book?

Sounds like if you dont take a break you are going to burn yourself out. I think this is a problem that alot of survivors have, not knowing when to give themselves a break. Have a break if you can. Peace.
