Hi, our local hospice have very kindly offered me some music therapy sessions. Don't know what that means yet. Only had the first session this afternoon, where he just asked a lot of questions.
I was describing my life and how it affects me, I.e. If I hear a crash, I am up, half way across the room, before I realise S is somewhere else. No doubt you have all done the same. Any way, he made the comment, that I thought summed up our lives. He said, what I was describing, was how soliders feel when they come off the front line, after being on constant alert. In other words, all this fighting we are doing and why we describe it as that, is because we are soliders, fighting a war, on the front line and we are going through the same traumatic stress.
Not sure if that is giving me any comfort, or making me more depressed. How about you???
I'll keep you informed as to what this music therapy entails.
Lots of love
