I thought I was doing okay but I watched a movie and it triggered my ptsd and past with my exes! Anyone care to listen?
I'm sorry this happened. We never know what is going to trigger us.
@marie86 I know it just sucks I didn’t plan on reliving my past today it sucks.
Here to listen and yes, triggers can still happen no matter how well we are doing but we can always continue working on them to decrease the intensity and how often they happen.
@Tealy will I ever just quit having them
@AmiraMae I know myself how bad flashbacks are. This sounds strange but it helps me. I carry a stone with me. I hold it if a flashback starts or after just to try and stay in the here and now.
@Loubon36 a stone?
@AmiraMae you don't have to use a stone. The idea is to hold something and physically mentally focus on it. Helps bring your mind to the present.
@Loubon36 oh okay!! Thank you
