I have cruised to Bermuda before out of New York City on Royal Caribbean’s Anthem ofContinue reading ““Boston to Bermuda””
I didn’t know that I was in a state of prolonged survival mode. I didn’t realize that I was normalizing all of the stressful stimuli in my life and that I was in a constant state of flight or fight.
