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.
The narcissist in the WH exacerbates my #CPTSD . I feel helpless because we can't seem to stop him. How did America get to this point?! I think of a summer day many years ago...I rode with my family in an RV after being picked up from the DFW airport. We stopped at a convenience
store 2 pick up sodas. I was going to put some shoes on when my Nanny (grandma) told me, "You don't need shoes. You're in Texas now." I drank my first Big Red that day and fell in love with Texas. It's a fond memory...and then come the other memories that remind me of fear and
terror. That same helpless feeling when I see what trump is doing to our country and what Texas has become due to selfish and greedy politicians who no longer work for the people. I watch @BetoORourke and he gives me hope.
.@BetoORourke reminds me of a shoeless child drinking Big Red on a summer day. I see @AndrewGillum in Florida and I'm filled with even more hope. This administration has to be removed. At least trump kept one of his campaign promises: we're going to drain the swamp.
I'm going to use my coping skills to help combat my #CPTSD symptoms and I'll keep fighting even though the struggle is often intense because I want the next generation to fall in love with Texas and not see us through the eyes of the alt-right. America is worth fighting for.
