One Day I'll Be Able to Talk About It

Painting I created after my mother passed. I title it "Maternal Nature"

All I can say right now is that losing my mother in the middle of the Spring 2022 semester took a bigger toll on me than I realized. I had attempted to use work and success as a salve to everything I was feeling. So I focused on grading papers, completing summer school, then making fall semester an even greater success academically.

But unresolved trauma can be like a monster hiding in the closet, and that monster came for me with vigor.

One day, I'll be able to talk about it and hopefully, help someone else in the process.
