I never post because I'm very bad at asking for help, but I was wondering... we all have nightmares, but lately the nightmares and flashbacks have been on overdrive; but instead of feeling scared when I wake up... I feel numb. I just noticed that during the day after I've had nightmares, I'm really down, emotional and depressed. Is that normal? It's been 2 years since I was diagnosed with PTSD, and it's been about 1 year since I quit going to therapy. I'm really nervous about going back to therapy because even though I liked my therapist, she used EMDR; and it was too exhausting. I stay busy all day long, and I don't have the time to take a 2 hour nap after EMDR. Sorry, now I'm rambling. Anyone with insight let me know!
