I won't do it! Probably.
I love that image. ❤️
I even thought about one of those pet strollers- bring the dog along! Companionship and something to hold onto.
Is it possible that having something to hold onto while you are walking would make you feel better?
I was trying to think of possibilities while I was reading… like when you have a stroller to push, it’s something to hold on to, a barrier between you and the world- plus the advantage of keeping you tethered to the earth’s surface. A walker is a bridge too far (although I wondered about a walking stick, those are common enough).
You know... you are such a skillful writer than I’m often confused whether or not I should be laughing at the dilemmas you share with us. On the one hand I know they are serious and I fell for you deeply, on the other hand you are so good at making it “funny”. Anyway.... I’m very interested to hear more about this EMDR. xoxo
Yay for Klonopin! I've heard great things about EMDR too
If I lived anywhere near, I would totally join you for a walk. Alas...
I have a friend who is a therapist who speaks highly of EMDR. I know nothing about it on a personal level, but I hope it is helpful to you and kudos to you for being aware and acknowledging your fears and concerns about being a shut-in. That's half the battle!
I'll move!! 😁
Ugh, so sorry to hear. Sounds awful. Am sure is awful. I live in the Hudson Valley! I like walking! Maybe we can meet up sometime. xo
