I’m trying to avoid a trigger

I’m trying to avoid a trigger, but if it happens
acknowledge it, but don’t act as it
will get bigger and bigger

Sometimes you may have to be
hospitalised for as long as you need.
Don’t worry – you need TLC, to be back
in command for your mind to be healed.

My life is not yet for taking.
Even though I thought my body was breaking
I’m now smiling because my illness
hasn’t won, I’m back, I’ve taken
back the reins, I’ve not lost this
battle yet, I’m getting stronger
day by day, this girl is finally back –
HIP HIP HOORAY!

My best therapy are my birds and laughter.
This is my second wind, so I believe
it may just be my ‘Happy Ever After’.
