Compassion For You - Compassion Fatigue information and support
My Blog

Overwhelmed

This last month has been a real learning time for me about me.  I seem to be getting to 10 on my own CF scale quicker and more often.  Yet, I have learned so much about my triggers and tools to help me calm and refuel myself in the last year or so.  How can that be?
I have mentioned before about my righteous voice and how I have to keep it in check.  My latest discovery is my inability to suppress my opinions about injustice, inequity and intolerance.
I have an incredible support system.  I have a manageable workload at home and at work. My self care strategies are strong and I know all the tools and use them to help me find some calm in my day (and in my mind!) I have tried to use non-interference techniques to keep my nose out of things I should not be involved in, and still the symptoms show up too regularly.
I have read so much about CF, VT and burnout I am able to identify the symptoms in myself and others quite clearly. So now what?
What are the options? 
One of the tools I really like is writing.  I want to post more blogs, but sometimes I find them so personal, I delete them.  My dear, sweet friend Nathalie gave me a beautiful journal the other day, a tough day, and I am using it already. I think it might help if I use it for my more personal thoughts ( I can use names and swear words there, which is great) and put more of a summary of my thoughts and ideas for change on my public blog.
Let me know what you think.  What works for you?
I don't know what might be next.  Stay tuned...
Christa
