My Traumatic Stress - A New All Trauma Community If you're having a difficult time with a minor or major traumatic event, not PTSD specific, we now support all trauma types at My Traumatic Stress community. No diagnosis required. Are there any good books on the subject? Something I can read that is a little deeper than just "googling" it. I just started my first session a week ago and found myself crying myself to sleep more than once. I'm wondering what the hell I got myself into. Hurts. Alot. I feel like I'm crying more for the safety of my own soul than the pain of what I experienced. I feel like I'm being ripped apart. I guess this is what its like to be in touch with your own humanity. When you are trained to be a soldier, you stuff your humanity in a box. And keep it there. This really sucks.
