    Issues of the Thoughts: Compassion fatigue, vicarious trauma and hopelessness

    Issues of the Thoughts: Compassion fatigue, vicarious trauma and hopelessness

    Often, the encouraging factor about offering help is feeling reassured that we’re including worth, making a distinction and bringing a couple of change for the higher. It drives us, motivates us, gratifies us even and aids persistence when the going will get powerful, nudging us in our stride ahead. Throughout each disaster, huge or small, emerges sure humankind that steps in to assist, defend…

    so I had started experiencing severe covid symptoms on the 19th of April, including severe body ache for days on end, high fever, chronic migraine, chills, loss of smell/taste/appetite, & painful wheezing. when my spo2 levels drops below 77, it was scary. my boyfriend & dad spent the entire night pleading at every hospital for a bed/oxygen supply, but unfortunately, there was no vacancy & they were helpless in their own right.

    thankfully, due to the guidance of my family doctor who decided to treat me for FREE, I'm much better than before. oxygen canisters could be secured after much toil & a mix of steroids, antibiotics, vitamins, & inhalers led to stabilized O2 levels. however, now I have:

    • severe pneumonia, with a rate of 17 out of 25, which can prove to be fatal

    • chronic fatigue, occassional difficulty to breathe

    • constant hunger, but inability to satiate either the mind or body or soul even after eating nutritious food

    • constant brain fog, delirium, abuse-based nightmares which are often difficult to distinguish from reality

    • negative ideation, depression, suicidal thoughts, an overwhelming sense of helplessness

    despite all the support I've had from my extremely understanding workplace, loved ones, family, things are still incredibly difficult to navigate. time feels unreal, & the world seems to function on a logic I can't quite grasp. although it's ok that my work has paused for a while & I'm getting by somehow financially, the anxiety of missing out is too much. my body feels sapped of critical energy all the time, & my mind is always occupied by shades of emotions I cannot fully process.

    these are really tough times. this is literally life & death. so it's ok to take a step back & heal as long as you need to. healing isn't linear, or always upward-spiraling, or easy. sometimes breathing in itself feels like an effort. art fails to comfort the way it used to - it only feels like a vapid commodity sometimes.

    take care, people. wishing all of you a speedy recovery. and sending lots of love.

    On the phone with a relative:

    Relative: I had a cold the other day and felt pretty sick for 24 hours. If I had to feel like that all of the time, I'd rather be dead.

    Me: I feel like that everyday...

    Relative: Well, I wasn't talking about you, I meant if I had to live like that, there's no point living. To be in that much pain and feel horrible? It's not worth it. I know you live like that but I wouldn't want to.

    Way to invalidate my existence 🙄. And it's not like I have a choice. Chronic illnesses and disabilities don't give you a choice to just quit or choose how much pain you want to be in. My illnesses and disabilities are part of me and sure, I don't feel well but I'd rather be alive. And I deserve to be alive even if my quality of life isn't up to ableds' standards. Perhaps instead, fight for a better quality of life for disableds instead of insinuating that our lives are not worth living.

    #I feel like i have a bad flu everyday all of the time and i unfortunately have lost patience for ableds when they are briefly sick #which is wrong on my part #i just get tired of these types of comments #chronic illness#disability#disabled#chronic pain#chronic fatigue#brain injury #post concussion syndrome #rant#personal#not covid

    @sophloph and I went to the park and walked for a mile yesterday. This seems like a great idea except now I'm out of spoons and feel like shit.

    I keep forgetting I have a chronic illness now and I can't do normal people things.

    I have wandered into "too tired to care about anything at all, but can't actually sleep, so I guess I'll just stare blankly at the ceiling for a while" territory. Thought I was gonna marathon a show today, since I knew an outing and the subsequent vaccine side effects would likely make it hard to do anything more active, but my brain is even having trouble with that. Why.

    Im about 50 hours out from my first C19 vaccine. My arm finally stopped hurting but I am beyond wore out. I've passed out twice already today alone. And needless to say eating everything in sight just to get the slightest bit of fuel in my system - poptarts and iced coffee so far are the winners.

    And yet I have absolutely ZERO regrets for getting it.

    Sorry Tumblr, I'm too moody to be on here lately. xP

    Things are really good in a lot of ways and I often feel just completely magical, divine, euphoric, and like everything is going to be okay and love is all around me.

    But then at the same time I'm plumbing new depths of loneliness. Kinda affection-starved, but I'm so scared of meeting people online since the last guy pretended be my friend and then raped me the very first time I said I wasn't in a sexy mood. But it's hard to meet people in person during the pandemic. OF is basically a bust these days; without another social outlet, it starts to feel like people only wanna talk to me when they're horny, and that's actually a whole new level of loneliness.

    I'm doing the best thing I can for myself lately and just powering through, skipping the part where I run back to meetup sites and either end up raped or stuck in a relationship I never even wanted.

    I really need some friendly cuddles right now. But I'm prickly and skittish. I don't trust anyone, not even myself.

    I think it's important for me to go through this. But it's fucking hard and I'm really weird about it.

    I went to the doctor today. He is adding another med to my regimen and hopefully that'll lower my pain. Fingers crossed.

    He thinks I might have some abnormalities in my ligaments in my neck so I have to get a CAT scan and an MRI. Ugh.

    But worst news is! It appears that dairy products are exacerbating my fatigue and pain so I can't have any dairy anymore. At all. Not even the lactaid stuff. :( I'm devastated.

    Final grades posted. I can breathe. I was supposed to get a Summer course, but enrollment sucked and it was canceled. I could've used the cash, but I also need the break. Soooo break it is.

    I'm attending a 4 day seminar online and Zoom fatigue is real (6 hours a day for four days). Thankfully it's useful information and I get paid to attend.

    House-wise...I got my air conditioner installed. This progress has helped immensely with trauma management. I'm getting things done and am in control.

    Know Someone Who Lost A Loved One To COVID-19 (Or May) And Is Struggling To Pay Expenses For Final Arrangements? FEMA Might Be A Solution

    Have you or someone you know experienced difficulties (financially) due to a loved one's burial or final expense costs due to the COVID-19 Virus taking their life, creating money issues due to final arrangements? There is help for people who have, at FEMA. If you know someone struggling because they had to bury a loved one who died due to the Virus, or are about to and know they will need help. Give them this information. There is no shame in asking for help to give a loved one a farewell that helps you not grieving with guilt in debt.
