I’m still sleeping 6-7 hours overnight. It’s a blessed experience. It feels like the 24-hour day is shorter – which I’ve experienced before as no longer a need to fill as much time every day. Although I have noticed my daily anxiety level is higher, not sure where and how I can affect it.
Last few days, I have been experiencing the ‘altered taste in my mouth’ thing. The ‘altered taste’ has been experienced once or twice every few months for many years. During these time periods, food and water do not taste as expected and generally everything tastes like bland mud. Most of the time it starts ‘out-of-the-blue’. Sometimes it seems to be triggered by our processing of traumatic memories or specific energy work on or around our brain.
Since my foot reflexology session about 7-10 days ago, I have not experienced upper leg pain and seem to be able to walk longer without discomfort. Although my right hip’s range of motion is still reduced, as I continue to have difficulty raising my right leg to get into my car. Yesterday, I received another foot reflexology treatment. During the treatment I felt more energy flowing through my pelvis and was able to stay present. In the past I haven’t tolerated energy movement through my pelvis; it always was quite triggering and I would immediately feel disturbed and could dissociate.
In my knitting realm, I discovered http://www.threadsofcompassion.org. All they ask is you knit or crochet a scarf at least 5 inches wide and 65 inches long AND that is soft and comforting. I will be making a scarf and I’ll post a picture when it’s finished.
“Threads of Compassion is a loosely connected group of survivors of sexual violence who desire to offer comfort and support to recent victims. The idea is simple. Anyone whose life has been affected by sexual assault or abuse is welcome to knit or crochet a scarf which will then be given to a victim of sexual violence when they enter the hospital for emergency treatment.”
