So new here. Idk thought I’d try it out. I don’t speak to anyone about my issues with family cuz I dont want them to feel any weight or worry. Anyways. I’m at work rn and had super bad nightmares last night. My adrenaline is way up. I have to talk to different people all day and I can’t get my emotions in check. Keep getting watery eyed. I just don’t feel good. I hate that this effects my job and I look crazy. I can’t just tell my boss won’t be able to go home anyways. Figured I’d get on here and see if anyone has any advice?

Are you working with a therpaist? If not, I urge you to do so. Sounds like your symtpoms are starting to interfere with your life. If you continue to push them down, they will eventually blow up on you. Better to get ahead of it and deal with them now, with the help of a therapist. There's also a good book I recommend that has a lot of suggestions on different strategies to help. The PTSD Workbook; Simple, Effective Techniques for Overcoming Traumatic Stress Symptoms, by Mary Beth Williams and Soili Poijula. About $25 from Amazon.

Yeah I count from1-100 over and over been practicing for years sometimes it’s just too heavy and I’m good most days tho. I have tried therapists etc but it never works. Medication etc isn’t helpful. I don’t think we can do anything but just ride the wave and it’s sucks lol thank you so much for your help round3

I think therapy does work but the trick is to find a good therapist. There lies the problem. Too many "therapists" that know nothing about trauma and ptsd. Also, many people think they just need to show up and fill the chair for an hour a week, and magically they will be cured. It doesn't work that way. The work needs to happen every day. If the person isn't willing to do the work, then no amount of therapy is going to help. If the horse isn't going to drink, no amount of fresh water is going to save him. Have you tried other grounding techniques? For me in the beginning I tried anything and everything until I found something that worked. Sure, a lot of our symptoms are all about "riding it out" but it's all the skills around it that make symptoms less severe and less common. If counting 1-100 doesn't work, try something else!
