I know that I’ve been very lazy with this publication over the past few weeks, as I haven’t kept my end of the bargain in publishing content within 24 hours, as I promised. I’m sorry for this, and if you’ve taken your content elsewhere that’s okay too.

I’m not well — mentally. I’ve been having therapy and EMDR over the past eight weeks and it’s been intense. I’m currently in remission for my OCD, which I’ve had for 19 years after rape, and I’m having really nasty withdrawal symptoms. I feel like I’m going crazy. The lows are more than the highs. I’m sleeping lots. The anxiety is high. I’m so paranoid and have lots of panic attacks.

Looking into ways to increase dopamine levels, so I need to perhaps engage in some form of exercise daily. I can’t go back to this additive behaviour.

Thanks to all who subscribe and post content to this publication. You are helping this publication to grow, and I hope that you are also earning decent money through the Medium Partnership Program. God bless you all.
