The last year I chose not to write, because I spent the last year in a specific therapy called EMDR. It is something that works well for trauma survivors, and without going into too much detail, it was money and time well spent. It took the experiences and memories my brain had walled off for self preservation, and processed them. It got rid of the power they had over me. Life is differently framed, and I am still learning and changing as a result. I am stronger and more resilient for my patients, gentler with myself, and more sure in my own perceptions and abilities. Little did I know how much I would need that resilience. I came back from my trip to Cambodia in January of 2020, and the whole world was about to change, and with it, my own path.
