Someday, I will again be able to go to the library spending hours rejoicing in all the colors and the choices it has to offer.
Someday, I will again be able to go to the grocery store, or any store for that matter and not get overwhelmed by the choices.
Someday, I will be again able to drive on long meandering road trips and not get overwhelmed by the cars and the quickness and speed that everything happens on the road.
Someday, I will again be able to enjoy the sound of fireworks without having it trigger a flashback.
Someday, I will again be able to take a deep breath and not be scared of the everyday noise of the world.
Someday, I will feel safe…I am safe, but I will also feel safe.
Someday…but not today. Today I am still easily triggered by my PTSD symptoms. It’s that time of year…it happens, it’s part of coming to terms with my past and dealing with the effects of my trauma.
But Someday, I know, it will be different!
