Regarding triggers:

Some of the things you say press firmly on what hurts. You aren’t hurting me. But the words found a hurt place & pressed firmly on it.

I’m in pain. You didn’t cause it. You just found it. And sometimes pressing on it makes me panic. #PTSD
Thinking of the recent #medhumchat discussing poems by Mary Oliver, pondering over the famous quote: “Tell me, what is it that you plan to do with your one wild and precious life?”
#cPTSD took living from me. Survival was the landscape, you see. I could only see surviving, in whatever way possible.

These past 2 weeks have been rough re: my #CPTSD . Unless you suffer from #PTSD or #CPTSD it's difficult to understand how thoroughly it disrupts your life and invades your mind. It's not just the nightmares, anxiety, and irritability...it's the random thoughts, the unwanted ..
flashbacks, hypervigilence, feelings of impending doom, catastrophising...it's a sudden smell that reminds you of terror, a random memory that leads to other memories, the constant fight between who you want to be, who you are, and who you were.
For me, the past 2 wks have been riddled with nightmares and unwanted / unbidden flashbacks and memories. I just want to be the confidant, carefree, optimistic, brave individual I used to be. I just wish I could peel off this constant terror like one peels off a coat.
