I now only do what I want to do .... period. Some call it selfish - I call it self preservation. Right now my heart & soul are on survival mode & anything that I think may be a trigger - I just avoid & you know what? It's been soooo much better after this last mc than the previous. I used to push myself to do things I was uncomfortable with, to see people I didn't want to see, etc. I don't know why. I don't know why I felt so obligated...all of them had moved on, forgotten & expected me to do the same. Well I haven't - I probably never will completely. I want others to have their lives & I don't want to be a downer, but I certainly will not put myself to be in a position where it causes me more pain & discomfort so they'll be "glad I came". Big deal. If you loved me truly, you'd be glad I was taking care of myself...that's what I think anyway...but I am a terd sometimes. I'm never quite sure if I'm giving good advice, or just promoting my bad behavior...but it is what helps me feel okay.
