I have battled basically two years of yo-yo emotions learning the names of my emotions in not one but two languages and discovering that I spent most of my life at a 50+ % stress level.
You see I hardly know my life without some form of trauma or another- I don’t go seeking it just seemed to find me and I didn’t have the tools to tell it to stop until recently (meaning about a year and a half ago). When I put two and two together and I really needed to start standing up for myself - before one can do that, one needs to define the problem- I originally thought my problem at the time was that was burnt out from a baby that screamed and vomited for year and a husband who wasn’t much help. Well half of that was true.
