Complex Trauma Prisons - Mistrust - YouTube

Disclaimer: video may only be useful if you're in a safe place (are not in immediate danger, e.g. in an unsafe environment like a homeless shelter, or in unhealthy relationships). As Tim said in the video, you've to remain on the alert for predators/abusive people. So if you're in an unsafe situation, and still want to watch, make sure you adhere to keeping boundaries and not trusting unsafe people.

I resonated with quite a few things in this video, and liked the wording and description (not that there's any fun in finding pleasure in such things).

Oh my gosh! US Open starts in less than a month. Nice! For some reason, I thought it was later. It makes sense it's in August. Let's gooo! Also, I hope there'll be no yelling and screaming coming from the spectators. 😅

Back from lunch. Also bought toothpaste (they don't supply you with toothpaste & toothbrush in shelters; I don't complain as I've income from disability, but can't imagine people who are able but have no work [yet?] and have to wake up and go to sleep unsanitized). Can't lie, since the conflict with the bully and me reporting him to the shelter staff and the subsequent conversation we'd, I feel anxious and it's constantly on my mind re: how the bully will react. I already see it coming: him doubling down on the fact that verbal abuse is normal. Of course, if it continues I'll start recording and next step is to file a report to shelter authority. If the authority fails to find solutions I'll go to legal action. I took some photos of the bathroom and his bed (he has two towels! And was complaining he has to wash his towel every time after taking a shower because he wipes the bathroom floor with it). Just in case.

Min 38:00 - it can most certainly happen to you if you suffer from C-PTSD. Isn't it wicked how normalized homelessness and addiction is in the West?

Also, she mentioned she has ADD. I'm not so sure about it, but if it's true I owe her an apology.

Logged in my war journal the result of me reporting the bully and the findings of taking pictures today of the room.

Oh... My... Gosh! Breakdance will be in the Olympics as a sport! So cool! I did a bit of breakdance (non professionally) when I was a kid. My teacher asked me to do a move once in front of the class and I nailed it. That's a good memory I never thought about.

Also, physics and breakdance together? Oh my gosh! What's not to love?

Also, I see what they did with the video title. 😅😊

The rent prices where I live are way crazier than what they complain about in the Netherlands

Also, just learned that Joe Biden is dropping out of the race. 😔 I feel sad. He did so much and he's so resilient. Will Harris be able to bring the nation together, keep the focus on what the American people can achieve together when united, and will you, the American people elect a black woman to be your president, and not just any president but the first female president the USA ever had? The fact that she was an Attorney General should make her able to deal with someone who was indicted. But will she hone in on what has been done, accept responsibility through accountability of what failed and focus on what can be done? I can only hope she will win. Not much time left. Hopefully, people will unite and have a good VP elected by her.
