Tired of having to prove we need help. 

Tired of asking, showing and proving. 

Tired that they have an invisible disability, but it’s so clear.

Tired of the constant reminder of their past. 

Tired of living with their emotional scars. 

Tired of feeling guilty

Tired of having to watch what they are doing, or saying, or where they are going. 

Tired of their vulnerability, and those who exploit it.

Tired of explaining, retelling the story again, and again, and again.

Tired of hearing how well we are doing, but feeling exhausted. 

Tired of crisis, after drama, then on to the next issue. 

Tired of the unrelenting pressure of it.

Tired of living each minute to the next.

Tired of the referrals, the meetings, the consultation.

Tired of the loneliness.

Tired of trying to keep each and everyone of the plates spinning. 

Tired of feeling tired.
