So here I am blogging about my feelings again. It’s never a great surprise to me that my thoughts and feelings constantly change.
When a child experiences trauma, it should be something the whole family work through too. Dealing with trauma is always difficult. To wake up one day and say I’m okay now doesn’t happen. It’s always a long road back to full emotional health, when we deal with any kind of trauma.
It’s also not something we can always bring clarity on. When we think we have clarity and we’re moving forward, we often find we’re not, something always gets in the way. But life soon evolves, we emotionally grow and time heals. Nothing ever stays the same. Things move to their rightful end, when they’re supposed to.
I am hoping with the weekend behind us that will bring more clarity. With four months off, this will be Dan’s first time back in St Andrews since his last operation. I am hoping he will use this time as an adjustment to get back into his old life.
We still have much to do. February will soon be around the corner, with the start again of university life. I want him to be ready for that.
