I am a single mom, working full time, recovering from trauma, raising children who are traumatized and getting better. I often have culture shock and a sick dependence on caffeine. I forget things, frequently.
I feel alone. With kids. It’s exhausting. It’s intoxicating. It is unimaginable.
I have to kick free and keep moving forward.
I have to kick myself and get going.
I have to get some more coffee.
