Hi all, I've been reading about this...a way of facing fears, but when you don't know what or when you can be triggered, I can see this being physically and emotionally exhausting. On the other hand avoiding and isolating...that would be me right now...helped for awhile, but now I get angry/frustrated with myself. I remember years ago, early on in my BI healing, grocery shopping caused anxiety/crying...but I didn't have the fear thing, so just the repetition of the same behavior, grocery shopping, eventually became easier w/o anxiety/crying. PTSD adds the "fear" response, which takes overstimulation to a whole new level of unknown! I've thought of a therapist...haven't decided yet...I went out today, just to take out trash, get something from my car....it's small steps, but it's something I guess!!
