    ACT for Post-Traumatic Stress #PTSD #MentalHealth

    Post-traumatic stress can result from several kinds of experiences which attack a person's morale and psyche. Trauma-related experiences come in many forms: it can be criminal victimization (rape, assault, armed robbery), domestic assault, childhood sexual abuse, natural catastrophes (tornado, fire), and so on. Ordinary human responses to post-traumatic stress are avoidance, numbing, or derealization. Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT) is used to treat PTSD and other mental health disorders. The goal of ACT is to promote acceptance while focusing on attention and commitment.

    Does “good” #Stress cause #your depression to #ACT up?

    Last week, several good #changes occurred in my life — got a #Newjob , had some home improvements done — but my #Depression was ALL over the place. Maybe a #reaction to #chanage ?

    Frustration in choppy waters

    After an abusive upbringing and a particularly abusive & manipulative relationship I’ve semi-recently been diagnosed with cPTSD.
    In the last few weeks my long term GP has moved out of my area and so I am now in the search for a new GP.
    This has been immensely frustrating with my cPTSD as I find it extremely hard to trust people and feel like I’m getting judged by everyone. However, I may have narrowed it down to 2 choices.
    My schema therapist has been keeping me stable and I’m finding schema therapy extremely fascinating and powerful after a number of years in CBT/DBT/ACT therapies, it is quite different to anything I’ve ever done and while I can’t explain how it works, it is clear that this therapy is the most powerful work I’ve ever undertaken.

    The final issue that is causing severe issues is chronic back pain due to scoliosis and TMJ pain which has only just been diagnosed but I’ve already been told that Panadol and Celebrex are all they can give me for the pain. This is highly frustrating and discouraging. I am finding relief from dōterra oils and their ice blue rub but need more relief than what I’m. currently getting.
    Going to request a referral to the pain clinic and try and get some other pain relief to help with the pain, I want to try to avoid narcotics at all costs but if I need to go on them I will but will be insisting the dosage is kept low. I want to train as a psychologist and need my brain clear. Not to mention being intoxicated will inhibit my gym training and weight loss efforts.

    I think the most frustrating thing about all this is being looked at sideways as thought I’m a drug seeker as soon as I mention pain. Considering I already don’t trust people this is the exact opposite of helpful.

    Sorry, long post, just needed to get that off my chest.

    Good Morning! ☀️

    You're going to have a wonderful day. Set your intention for the day, remember to breathe and check in with yourself often to make sure your relaxing your muscles, and remember that feelings are just feelings. Don't label them as good or bad, just observe and let them flow.

    Too Many Thoughts

    Aniety can come in a rush of thoughts. You are overwhelmed. I try to pick just on thought and breathe into it. The rest of the clutter simply fades away. #PanicAttacks #Anxiety #ACT #panic disorder

    Crying upon waking

    Recently I’ve been waking up in the middle of the night just sobbing. In the past I would try to stop myself. These past few days I’ve just allowed myself to feel sad. Doing this has actually felt so much nicer. Does anyone else find it helpful just to feel the feelings and not run from them? #Anxiety #sad #cry ##ACT - accepance and commitment therapy
