Writing and PTSD

I've been trying to write, but nothing comes out. It's difficult to explain how my mind is working right now. It's rather nonsensical. I care, but I don't. How does one explain that?

#selfcaretogether

Funny thing happened. Right after I joked about making #selfcaresaturday a trend. I happened upon this. So here are my pics for the first day: Yes, these were all taken at school, but it still counts. 😛 Join me tomorrow when I will attempt to convince you that pumpkin spice everything is healthy af.
