I hate Halloween so much. And i’m dreading tomorrow night. I hate absolutely everything about it. The costumes, the trick or treaters, the Halloween commercials on the tv, it is all so overwhelming to us. I found out recently that Halloween originated in Ireland, that stunned me. I just wish it was over. I’m really exhausted from the constant flashbacks, trauma memories, overwhelming emotions that it brings up. Our system has been struggling so much over this past week. Its really difficult to cope with the pain and overwhelm and all the memories Halloween brings up of times in our life where we were being abused and we couldn’t get away. If you like the holiday, i’m genuinely happy for you. But i don’t. We don’t. Nobody in our system likes it and most everyone is effected and triggered in some way during this holiday.
