[75]

I feel like a burden sometimes because of my PTSD, panic attacks and anxiety. All of it keeps my husband awake longer than he should be because he works early mornings. He says it's okay, he understands what I'm going through, but I can't help thinking to myself that I'm just being stupid and selfish. But having those hellish memories play over and over again...it's hard to control all this. It's all still fresh.
Why do people do stuff like that?

@Brittany112 I know that hurts a lot and there are images flying through your head. It's okay. I completely get it

What a great husband you have, to be so understanding. It kind of sounds like you are feeling some misplaced guilt that may have been brought on by what happened. Please know you are not alone in what you are going through. The flashbacks and anxiety can be hard to deal with. This is our brain's way of trying to make sense of what happened. Anxiety increases when there is no rationalization to be found, but our mind keeps trying. Some mild anti anxiety medication may help. Counseling could also. If you need resources, you could try RAINN at 800.656.HOPE (4673). They can assist in locating counselors, support groups, etc. Hang in there and reach out when you need to. We are here to support you.

He's definitely there for me and very comforting. And yes, it's PTSD, has to be.
I'll check out the phone number soon. I have also found an app called Calm that helps with anxiety, trouble sleeping, depressing, reducing stress. It helps.
Thank you for your help.
