Cri du coeur (bad mental health wobble)
Oh Shop... I'm really having my ass whipped by a Very Obstreperous Inner Child. Like I haven't had to deal with for a very long time.
I know there's a lot of pain out there, and it frustrates me that now I'm adding to it rather than helping subtract it, however minority I can with words of encouragement.
Spare a good thought or two in this direction, if you're so minded. Right now, the only aikido I seem capable of is breathing.
