Oh God, I know I have to go on, but I don't feel like I can make it through another night. I had a panic attack and then found myself unable to move for half an hour. And now I'm locked in my bathroom sobbing. Why is it so hard to go on???

I don't often manage to let myself cry, but when it happens it feels like I can never stop...(which is rubbish, because I always stop)...then when it those stop I always have a sense of relief. like a little of the pain got out and I processed on little piece of the trauma, one tiny step ahead. I keep telling myself it doesn't matter how tiny the steps, it counts as a step forward.

@livingwithcomplexPTSD yes, steps forward... I got triggered in church today. Suddenly there were voices in my head telling me how worthless I was and i spent the entire time trying to keep myself from crying. I'm feeling better now though.

@35years wow, I'm glad you found something to help you! I'm going through cognitive behavioral therapy already for depression and anxiety so maybe my therapist can help me figure out the PTSD.
