    Not doing well

    Wow, it's been a tough week with triggers and ptsd symptoms! Ugh. I've been using my coping skills, which is keeping me from losing it altogether, but I'm not seeing any real progress. This is frustrating. It's like one trigger after another. I get myself calmed down from the first, only to be bombarded by another and another and another. I might be calling the crisis line this weekend. My biggest triggers are my children, whom I love and adore, so I work hard to keep myself from reacting out of fear. I tend to react with fight, so I end up feeling chaotic because I have to repress my natural instinct to protect myself. It gets pretty rough around here, at least in my brain and chest and stomach and muscles... #parentingwithptsd #CPTSD #ifeellikescreaming
