Hi guys, While brain games have helped me a lot cognitively with BI...during the recent PTSD aftershocks...it became way to overstimulating and I felt my mind was "scattered"...I had a real hard time getting/staying grounded....at times I felt like I was levitating out of my body....very strange feeling. I wonder now if that was a defense mechanism..my brain/body protecting itself...a type of detachment maybe?? I use soft music/white noise/tried to watch calm/safe movies/Jane Austen,etc, but even that calm dialogue seemed too fast. I increased my Med which helped the anxiety/calmed the "mind movies" /l describe it as tho someone straps a TV screen in front of your face that you can't get away from!!?? Laying down,eyes closed,repeating prayers helped the most.

I'm trying to exercise daily. I was doing fairly well until I sprained my ankle 2 weeks ago but now I'm getting back on the horse. Today I walked over a mile with my arm weights that are about 22lbs total. I was out of shape and it was hard on my arms. I also did my 30 situps. I'm also going to drink a lot of water and try to eat healthy. I do tend to have a sweet tooth but I'm cutting...
