I just finished day 2 of the trip. About 420 miles to go, which will happen tomorrow (Wednesday).
I'm extremely tired so I'm not going to write much, but it's been a nice trip, very low stress. Very freeing to finally be hundreds of miles away from a place where a lot of bad things happened, and currently where all my stress seems to come from.
Now I'm just left from stress caused by stuff that is inside me, but I never expected that to go away. I just wanted a new environment.
Most irritating thing being my difficulty getting my sleep right, and its interaction with my meds, but I'm sure I'll figure it out eventually.
I stopped at a place where I lived when I was ages 7 through 11 earlier today (the trip took me very close to it). I recognized everything, even 21 years later. It was very surreal. I sort of wish I wasn't so numbed out in general so I could feel more of things like that, but even through the numbness it was powerful. There's something about going to a physical place and touching and looking at things that brings back memories and makes things seem more real.
