Sending you so much love friend, I haven't been on much, lots of triggers and PTSD things happening (can relate to the fogginess) but I'm think of you and sending you lots of safe hugs (if ok), and healing and peaceful energy. So so grateful for you in my life, and SO excited about your upcoming marriage!!! Hang in there, you bless so many people every day, I'm grateful I know you!!

  6. I had a really, really bad night last night.  Bad trigger, then awful, awful nightmares.  I'm too embarrassed to write about the triggers, I feel so ashamed.  I need support😞

      Thank you so much @Free2Fly @MeBeMary and @mini.finchI slept better last night so that's good, I'm so tired lately.  I'm trying to be kind to myself but it's hard.  The trigger was hard, and the memory it triggered from the night of my assault...I'm just so ashamed of:(I'm gonna try to talk about it with T, but I have a feeling I'll dissociate.  It's so hard carrying this :(

    3. MeBeMary

      MeBeMary

      I know it's hard to believe, but the shame is NOT yours. I hope talking to your T helps. Remember that you are braver than you know. If you don't believe it yourself, try to take my word for it. 

      Will pocket-ride when you go see T. Supporting you. :hug:

  8. In a situation where I don't feel heard, and trying to advocate for myself.  I'm feeling anxious and scared but marching ahead anyway, could use some sitters ❤️ (nothing scary, just interpersonal stuff, still hard though, feeling very emotional :( )

      Thank you so much @Capulet@MeBeMary, I could feel you guys sitting with me and it helped!!  It went really well, we worked on strategies to help me manage my anxiety and symptoms as we delve deeper into stuff.  I will write more later, I need to talk and process but it just sends my anxiety up so high, I'm sitting with all the emotions, they're hard but it's a good thing, but it's all just so exhausting sometimes.  I haven't really cried about my assault before, which sounds so ridiculous but I just can't seem to let myself feel enough to do it, it's just to much to feel, but I need to and I think I will get there if I keep working at this.
