  • The noise in my head diminished. Like a flare gun streaking across the shattered sky were intermittent thoughts: "God, why this now?" and "If this thing rolls over I'm dead". But other than that, my mind was silence. I was treated to the chunky sounds of aerodynamics, of scraping plastic, of massive air, of hot metal warping. It was serene. A mountaintop could not have been more quiet. And I didn't even know what was happening. One second I was driving, and the next second I was taken out. #car #carcrash #accident #mva #motorvehicle #motorvehicleaccident #aftermath #ptsd

  • Trigger warning: violence against women.

I'm sitting in a counselling office feeling stressed and nervous. I've been to counselling so often in my life and find it so helpful....
But, I so easily forget this feeling: the feeling of "what is it going to be like?", "will I traumatize myself by talking about it?", fear of the unknown.
How deep will this go? 
This is the feeling why people don't seek help. I know it. It's a gut wrenching I-feel- like- I- will -throw -up type of feeling. 
I witnessed a guy beat up a woman in public last weekend and I've been on edge all week. Laughing seems like crying. I can't sleep. 
So, I will go and get support. People know this stuff off the top of their head. I will walk the talk. 
Talking: It's the only way to get trauma out of my body and I really need it out. 
I haven't been myself.

  • Psychiatrist says my anxiety is down 15%. Itโ€™s still in the severely elevated levels but this is progress. I contribute the decrease to my roommate being gone more often. Iโ€™ve also made sure to practice grounding techniques and work on improving system communication. Iโ€™m excited to see how much improvement Iโ€™ll have when I finally get a new place.

  • You cannot look for healing, or validation, from those who broke you.
In most cases - those who broke you don't care they broke you.
In some cases they enjoy breaking people.
In many cases there will be no remorse or conscience about the harm caused. 
To seek anything healing from the people who broke you and keep going back to the source of the pain - keeps survivors from healing.
It keeps survivors being hurt.
You need to seek healing from within, support from good people with good intentions.
You need care, love, compassion and respect. 
That starts within ourselves.
And only allowing healthy input into our lives.

  • Mental Health...
โ€ข
According to historians, we are living in the safest time period in the history of humanity. Yet 1 in 5 adults in the U.S experience a mental illness within a given year according to NAMI
โ€ข
Is this due to the progression of mental health diagnostics in the healthcare system? Or is it a new statistic that has emerged within the past century due to the environment that we have created for ourselves
โ€ข
Mental health is important, we all have it, it is an essential aspect of the human experience. We are all prone to mental illness, no matter what socioeconomic status or culture we identify with. Please take care of yourself. Writing openly has always been a good outlet for me, being true to my feelings and perceptions. DO NOT BE AFRAID TO REACH OUT

  • As with many who live with PTSD, being in crowded places can be overwhelming. Fight or Flight kicks in and anxiety levels start to rise, you get tired from constantly being on guard. The constant adrenaline dump from being vigilant constantly becomes mentally draining, and all you want to do is leave. My friends just remind yourself that you ARE Safe, and breath so you are able to enjoy each moment. It takes time and practice, but it is possible; not saying I've mastered it but I've definitely getting better. #positivevibes #igy6 #ptsdsurvivor #PTSD #justbreathe #mentalhealth #anxiety #prolongedexposure #inthemoment #youaresafe

  • ๐Ÿ’™This is a crucial step in healing for many of us. Our anger can feel completely cut off from us since we had to suppress it during the trauma. We couldnโ€™t express ourselves normally around abusers, so we learned not to.

Now we have to undo that. We have to learn to cry and grieve and acknowledge ALL of our emotions. We have to sift through and learn whatโ€™s rooted in trauma and whatโ€™s normal and whatโ€™s a trigger.

We have to engage in healthy anger. It may seem like something unnecessary, especially if youโ€™re not an angry person by nature, but finally feeling the pain of what happened and getting mad about it is important to heal.

For many of us, an angry parent was an abusive parent. It was terrifying to experience someone get angry. So you may be afraid to be this way yourself. Follow your fears to the bottom and find out what your true fear is- are you worried youโ€™ll turn into your abuser? Are you scared you wonโ€™t be able to stop? Explore this emotional block!

Learning to feel angry heals our past selves, allows our future selves to engage in healthy anger instead of self-abuse, and breaks down some of the internalized beliefs we may be holding onto.  You canโ€™t be mad at your abuser if you also unconsciously believe you deserve it. But becoming angry at them, allowing yourself to go there in a therapy session or while venting to your safe friend, may show you that you NEVER deserved abuse.

You are worthy and should never have been made to endure what you did. You can heal, and no matter how hard or scary it looks, you can get better from where you are.

  • You could of had โ€œgoodโ€ or โ€œgood enoughโ€ parents and still be anxious or avoidant in a relationship!
๐Ÿ’“
I often hear people say โ€œwhatโ€™s wrong with me! My parents loved me!!!!โ€ Or โ€œI feel bad blaming my parents for the way I am!โ€
๐Ÿ’“
Having one of your attachment styles (because as weโ€™ve discussed you can and probably do have more than one!) doesnโ€™t automatically mean your parents sucked. And also maybe they did.
๐Ÿ’“
But either way, there are SO many things that contribute to your attachment style. The other personโ€™s attachment style! Friendships. Early relationships. Any romantic relationship actually! Patriarchy (AKA being taught to believe that men are cold and women are crazy and the ways we internalize that.)
๐Ÿ’“
Basically, this shit is complex and examining our relationships with our caregivers is often helpful, but doesnโ€™t always cover all of it.
