Feeling much better this morning and early afternoon after venting with a few people.While running an errand, I was confronted last night by their a certain known drug-addled and angry-paranoid neighbor. I handled the situation suitably and quietly, but remained emotionally volatile and triggered for several hours until I was able to vent with my roommate. This morning, I was able to finally contact my friends directly who know of this person and are direct neighbors to him. I'm grateful they are clearly advocating for me and will deal with that drug-addled person directly, though it may well be the last time I have to be in that area.Generally, I'm oddly amused by the aspect that I have gotten better with dealing with the drug culture in multiple neighborhoods. Not great, but thus far in numerous encounters this summer, none have turned violent. Not so amused that I have developed a reactionary instinct for - just in case - to defend myself with violence if necessary. A note on violence: most - if not all - of the confrontation addicts I've dealt with lately all have some issue of violence. That I really need to preferably avoid it at all cost for obvious reasons, but also that if blood is shed with any in the drug addict culture, I should be tested or treated immediately for a host of known blood borne pathogens.I don't like being triggered. Not fun at all. Too many repercussions. And it sets my healing and recovery back a huge amount. It helps very much that I now have supportive people and have an outlet to vent.
