Sorry for lack of posts.
Been doing the DBT and going through some things.
Getting myself back on track, there's light at the end of the tunnel.

Entering Into Recovery

I attended my first Sex and Love addiction anonymous meeting for survivors of CSA.

It was an amazing and validating meeting. I felt seen...I didn't feel so alone in my experiences and struggles to create and maintaining healthy relationships.

I felt/ feel motivated and empowered to work the program.

I know it won't be easy but I am sure it will be worth it. #PTSD #Depression #Addiction #Relationships #PTSDSupportAndRecovery

Feeling the same for the past few days, still going through the trials of unmedication.
Very tired.
However, I'm starting DBT (Dialectical Behaviour Therapy) next week, and I'm hopeful in the results it'll give me.
Life goes on, and I just have to push through.

New person

Hi there, I am new here and figuring out what I should be doing. I have spent way too much time trying to find a group online for support. Something always seemed to block a breakthrough. Well, I had to do a lot of healing by myself and am happy I am alive and that I was able to manage. Although it would have been easier if I was in the right company. I hope to find good prayers and energy to keep me going, my work and finances suffered tremendously due what happened to me to lingering bad relationships and abuse. #PTSDSupportAndRecovery

Childhood Trauma affecting me as a parent #PTSD

*TW: Child abuse*
As a young mother, I love nothing more than being with my baby. Well, as much of a baby as a toddler can be. She is growing in leaps and bounds, and leaving this work-away-from-home mom feeling a little left in the dust. I relish the mundane and swallow whole every second spent with her. So many hugs, so many kisses. I cry (see previous post on PPD). As my PPD has gotten more manageable- one thing hasn’t. And that is my childhood trauma of watching and listening to my father physically, verbally, and mentally abuse my younger brothers. Before they could even talk. In a desperate “power” struggle for absolute obedience- he would “spank” them into submission- with many tools and his own hands. Screams. Shrieks. Day and night. My desensitized mother was only able to helplessly look on with me as they were yelled at, hit, and scared. From the age of 6 until I was well into my teens. But it began when they were just babies. Toddlers. Like mine. And so, even though I will NEVER lay a finger on her or ever speak hatefulness to her- she of course still cries and shrieks and throws fits, like we all do at that age while we figure out how to communicate and realize the world around us. How to process all of those big feelings inside of our little bodies (hell - I still don’t know how to do that sometimes). But when this happens on the daily, I notice it takes a role on my sanity. I begin to shake, have my heart flutter, and I don’t perceive the situation for what it really is. I become very sad inside- like an ache. And when she doesn’t stop- it easily escalates for me into a panic attack. How do you cope with these unavoidable things? My fiancé is incredible- he will take her while I process my emotions. But I also don’t want to stay frozen in time with my screaming little brothers every time she has a meltdown. Any words of advice or encouragement? I need to be there for her- and myself. Thank you all kindly. #Anxiety #PTSD #PTSDSupportAndRecovery #PostpartumDisorders #MentalHealth

Nightmares & reminders of trauma

Last night I didn't sleep until about 5 o'clock because of a trauma trigger around midnight. When I was finally able to sleep, I woke up from nightmares a few hours later. I hope I get through the day :/

Since the one year anniversary of the rape symptoms have been much worse again. And the abortion online test I did apparently now 12 months ago sent an email yesterday asking me to rate it. 😞
Like, dudes, that's quite a sensitive topic.

Feeling a lot of aches from the medication detoxing, and a lot of tiredness as well.
It exhausts you physically and mentally, especially when you do it in a shorter amount of time than other medications.
But my body and mind will be better in the end, and be
healthy. #BorderlinePersonalityDisorderBPD #BPD #PTSD

As l go further into detoxing, l can feel myself getting more and more emotional over the smallest things.
Every feeling is amplified tenfold, and l have to catch myself when I get irrationally emotional over something small.
But I know this will be worth it in the end, and there's things l can
do to help myself with my emotions. #BorderlinePersonalityDisorderBPD #BPD #PTSD #PTSD
