soughter is trying very hard to relax. Oxymoron much?
I have been dealing with PTSD most of my life. I have only recently, in the past 8 years or so, begun to learn how to overcome it. It has seemed like a lifelong battle for a very young person. I have been chronically fighting a recurring phase for the past 3 months that has been especially difficult. Sometimes it feels like I’m never going to get over this. There are times when I feel safe and at peace, and they are brief, but they are some of the sweetest moments I wish I could prolong indefinitely. I always have flashbacks. No one really knows what I’m going through because I’m afraid of being stigmatized, but Id really like to confront that challenge. I’m currently attempting to focus on grounding exercises but it is difficult for me to focus. I want to improve my focus on grounding exercises.
