It's okay to have a bad day because tomorrow you will be stronger and realize you learned something from yesterday! Dec 8, 2017

      PTSD rollercoaster. This time, eyes open, hands & head held high, smiling & screaming "weee". PTSD will not steal my joy again!

      PTSD will not define my sufferer, nor will it define me the supporter. PTDS you may be tough but I'm tougher.

      Supporters should be called sufferers too!!! I'm angry, mad and down right pissed off! We suffer too damn it!

      HELP! Why do those with PTSD, get so ticked off, totally withdraw over such trivial things that have nothing to do with their trauma?

        Have you asked him why things make him mad, or tried to see the thing differently together? In every case it's not a reason to maltreat you, sorry if he's been doing that.

        When you're already hypervigilant and full of hypersensitivity it doesn't take much to send me over the edge sometimes. With PTSD my stress cup is almost full lots of times whether it's good or bad stress; so it doesn't take much for it to overflow. It's a constant work in progress (and therapy) to learn how as you say not let little things send me over the edge. Just my experience.

        Imagine being really stressed out at work, so stressed that you have no capacity to handle anything else at the moment. Wouldn't it be easy to snap if even the slightest thing went wrong? Now imagine that person is your husband, but not at work. All that stress is always there, even when relaxing in the recliner. We're always stressed. We live our past in the present.

      Sufferers . . . Why is it that a small thing said out of concern can make you shut down? I want to understand.

      After years of living on a roller coaster of emotions, my husband was diagnosed with PTSD

        I thought they had misdiagnosed him until I read everything I could and realized they hit the nail on the head. Therapy has helped tremendously but was interrupted by moving across the country. Things were getting difficult and I found him a new therapist BUT since starting with the new therapist he seems to be strugglin once again. It this normal?

        May take him some time to adjust to a new therapist. It takes me a while.

      Has anyone used hypnosis for PTSD symptoms and if so, does it help?

        I have often wondered if hypnosis would help, because many of my memories are locked away. I do know that EMDR can be quite effective for ptsd treatment, though.

        My husband will begin EMDR therapy soon but frankly it scares me. I fear he will go into a major relapse. I've read on it but really don't understand it and am sure that's where my fear comes into play. I know that hypnosis has helped a lot of people with many things but wasn't sure if it's been tested on helping those with PTSD.

        The EMDR should help him. It can get a little stressful a few days into the treatment, but afterward, when his mind has had time to "settle", he should improve, at least a little. Some people, like myself, need "recharging" sessions periodically. But, sadly, I don't have any resources in my current area to do that. Maybe he will have better luck.
