I saw a therapist for the first time yesterday. It was the first time I was told what I'm dealing with is PTSD. The things that have triggered this happened more than twenty years ago. I have no appetite, am struggling with getting a good night sleep, and I get nervous, tense, and body just starts shaking. I don't think I'm having flashbacks, but am dealing with intrusive memories. Life seemed pretty good until sometime in November. Therapist said things will probably get worse before they get better. I'm doing what I can, praying, talking to people (big step, was afraid to talk about my abuse), journalling, I just want to connect with others that are dealing with this. Therapist told me alot of times when we feel safe in life, the brain lets the stuff come up so we can deal with it.
