On February 24, 2022, my husband had a series of acute strokes, followed by a seizure. Unbeknownst to us, his blood sugar was over 600 and he had COVID! I called 911 and the ambulance came and took him to the ER. After 10 days in the Covid restricted area, followed by several days in a step-down unit, he was sent to an acute care rehab for Physical Therapy. Now I am processing my complicated feelings concerning his health…and these are massively paradoxical feelings. I am grateful to be able to use Dialectical Behavior Therapy Skills (DBT) to help manage my simultaneous gratitude, grief, rage, disgust, fear, hope and more. With the help of G-D and All My ANGELS, I am experiencing ALL the feelings on the Emotion Wheel hour by hour…without using any food or substances to medicate/numb myself. It’s a wild ride, brutal and beautiful💙
