At risk to unravel

I recently got my discharge summary from my time spent at a psychiatric hospital last year. This one line stands out to me:
“Insight and judgment are fair but the patient is at risk to unravel due to the high tension she has had in her life recently.”

This is a very accurate statement about that window of time in my life.

It won’t help me to vividly rehash the experience. Perhaps I will simply say: I was still at risk for unraveling. I did, in moments. I made the best possible decision for myself by getting help and leaving the stressful situation.

A reminder for myself for the moments where I fall back into the memories of that time: I am not in that place anymore. I have found my way back to myself. I have found new threads and continue to weave my life.
