I have found no shortcuts but one. There has been no shortcut through therapy. It has been long and recovery is ongoing. I have found no shortcuts in PTSD coping. Nope. I wish there were. I have looked for them but it seems the person who took the shortcut gave me the long haul. I have found no shortcut through mourning or grief. When my mother decided to stop speaking to me there have been no shortcuts to overcoming or even coping with that. Her little shortcut to dealing with her own denial and ego has left me with the long lasting pain of losing a mother. No shortcuts to finding a cure for the muscle disease I have. Although I have endured 12 years of testing to no avail. No shortcuts in treatment for Lyme disease. Although it is going on it’s 4th year of treatment and infact starting a new treatment this weekend.
BUT there is one and only one shortcut I have found! It is my shortcut hair!!!!! I love it! I will never go back long. It is the shortcut that has allowed me to be who I have always needed to be. Shortcut me!
