As I have chosen to postpone the dissection of Plan’s B, C, and D, I find myself hesitant and ‘cautious’ in my conclusion on this matter. So I think it best to give credit where credit is due. This three-part disclaimer was inspired by Collin Raye. I usually keep my writing nondenominational … nothing causes offense as quickly as religion. I hope that the contextual reference and resulting imagery will find a common thread for all belief systems.
What if Jesus
Comes Back Like That
The Lyrics:Nobody says life is fair we’ve all got a cross to bear but when it get’s a little hard to care just think about Him hanging there
The cross I bear is Post Traumatic Stress Disorder. I have decided that this diagnosis is not sufficient reason for me to stop caring. I made a conscious decision to not become desensitized to what I witnessed – no matter how painful or horrifying – and I have made a conscious decision to not be defined by trauma, but rather by the insights I have gained from observation and reflection.
Three years ago I had a daily intake of seven different prescription medications – none of which were much help.
Two years ago I began to eliminate them, one at a time.
Today, I am medication free and walk the fine line between mind over matter.
At times my emotional reactions and opinions are stronger or more passionate than expected and are misread as aggression, anger or hostility.
This is rarely the case.
Thus endeth the disclaimer.
