How do you all deal with constant fear?

Hi, group. I’ve struggled with even posting here since I joined. I deal with constant fear and anxiety from #CPTSD . I was abused as a child and then my first relationship was 3 years with a malignant narcisstic who still harasses me after 15 years of being apart. Because of my conditioning, I’ve been in several other long-term trauma situations. I struggle deeply with constant fear, flashbacks, invasive thoughts, night terrors/nightmares of my abusers, and have dealt with constant trauma for the span of my life. Sometimes it’s so difficult to deal with the feelings and terror in my head that I’m constantly dizzy and exhausted, my stomach always hurts and I can’t lose weight because of constant cortisol surges, which doesn’t help how I feel about myself. I’m married to a good man now, but I still struggle terribly. He is amazing, but it’s hard sometimes because he can’t totally understand me and my situation/feelings/fears, and psychosomatic symptoms. It’s hard to find people who can empathize in any way. I have two therapists, but I was looking for a safe place to connect with other people who can relate to my situation and I found this place. Hoping I made the right choice and that I can connect with some of you. Thank you for taking the time to read! #PTSD #CPTSD #Anxiety #panic #PsychosomaticSymptoms


PSA: You can Opt out of Care Everywhere!!

Doctors sharing notes can be extremely detrimental when you have a complicated medical history. Even changing medical systems often isn't enough to escape something wrong/misleading a doctor once wrote about you or diagnosed you with because of "Care Everywhere", which lets all doctors using Epic see each other's notes.

You opted in without knowing it, but you can opt out.

The good news is, you can opt out! You can get back in control of who sees which notes from your past! One bad doctors visit doesn't have to be it ❤️

To opt out Google "NAME OF YOUR HOSPITAL/CLINIC" and "Care everywhere opt out" Fill out the form you find (should be a simple one page with check boxes), and send it in!

Hopefully this will help someone else. I was just able to do it (and just saw the records are really not shared anymore!), and though being told my problems were psychosomatic was deep back in my chart, it's existence still made me nervous. Now I not only have diagnoses, but I don't have to worry so much about the past getting drug up.

Psychosomatic Symptoms (Symptoms caused by brain/mental health/stress)

Does anyone have helpful tools for psychosomatic symptoms? I’ve been getting these stress rashes since high school and they are so distracting. I use hydrocortisone both to calm the skin and to try to use the placebo effect to my advantage and trick my brain

*I’m positive these are psychosomatic so please no advice saying that I may have *insert cause here * please. My doctor and I over the course of a few years in high school ruled out sun/ sun allergy, body wash, lotion, detergent, food allergies, seasonal/environment allergies and probably some I’m forgetting probably forgetting


Aaagh.. Why do I have so many feelings?!

I have #BorderlinePersonalityDisorder so that's probably the reason but I just wanted to find someone to commiserate with. I feel like I'm just a hot mess. One moment I cry and the other I'm annoyed and then I am happy and so on. Also the feelings are so... painful? Do yall get what I mean... Like they physically hurt my face and my stomach and so on depending on the emotion I'm going through. I feel so done with everything.. #BorderlinePersonalityDisorder #EmotionalIntensity #PsychosomaticSymptoms #hurtslikehell
