Another day and another way I’m struggling . just getting out of bed is a struggle on its own. feel like I’m lacking the mental basics in life just to get by and just makes me even more anxious. really struggling to cope
I experienced a flashback at work this past week and had a minor panic attack. I was able to gather myself. It is okay to suffer even if the trauma happened a while a go. What you are feeling us valid and I'm here for you.
Sexual content (consensual and non) - - - - - - - - Sooooo... My girlfriend and I have become sexual. I love her. I trust her. We have safewords and she knows when I'm starting to have an episode. I am mostly okay but when we use a certain toy, it triggers my PTSD so much. I absolutely hate it. I have to concentrate really hard to not let my mind wander back to a rape. I feel awful that this is an issue. I love her so much. I hate that this is ruining things (She doesn't say it ruins things).
Have you ever laid down under a tree just to look at the sky. Has I laid there looking at the different shades of colours, the sunshine coming though the branches made me realize that there is darkness and light in everything that lives. As I was reflecting on my pass and present drama and trauma, I’ve realized by being under that big old tree that the light shines brighter. Sometimes we need to change our way of thinking. I hope you see the same by gazing at the pic. Please give me some feedback. Hugs
I hate when the paranoia catches you at night and now you’re clutching the knife under your pillow extra hard
Anyone a little
How do you lower your heart rate/ pulse during anxiety symptoms?
Any one age regress
It's perfectly understandable to feel and be all these things 💜
Have you ever said ´yes’ to things you really meant to say no’? Was it easier for you to avoid a confrontation? Are you the people pleaser type? Rest assure that you are not alone. I’ve been there until I learned to follow my own instinct and follow my own desires. When I learned to say ‘no’ I was judged because I was always please others. I was always bending forward to meet people’s needs, while avoiding my own needs. For me it was a long process but I achieved my goal. Some people associate the word ‘no’ has being rude. I’m a pleaser, helper, fixer, so saying ‘no’ felt impossible. It’s no surprise that we live in the fast lane....when we’re feeling overwhelmed we need to look at the unnecessary things that we can avoid doing. You might be surprised that a lot of those requests/chores are for others. When I get requests I ask myself: 1- Will it have a negative impact on someone’s health? 2- What is my benefit in saying yes? 3- Will it matter if I say no? 4- Will it matter at the end of the day? This has helped me throughout my process. I am no longer a people pleaser, I am no a ‘me pleaser’. I no longer say ‘yes’ to the things that don’t matter to me. I’ve learned to say ‘no’ because I come first. My anxiety has gone down big time. Saying ‘no’ has given me so much health wise. I have gained some self esteem because I now respect myself. Have you ever felt this way?
My brain is just so overwhelmed
We’re born with a voice, We often feel unheard, Here we are, Stronger than ever. They always seem, To pull us down, Drag our names, Into the darkness. We’re born with a voice, Let’s stand together, Raise our voices, For inner justice. Whoever tries to bring us down is already below us. Hugs
My infidelity PTSD is getting the best of me..I need help to cope with this
Got my kids for a week and i cant seem to relax and feel like my joy is being stolen away. I never wanted this for them. Going back and forth between both parents. Its hurting me more then it should. I just wish their mom would see things the way i do. Wish she wouldnt have fucked it all up for us....
My trauma is taking over at the moment. I just don't know to move on?
