I don't know if this is common to anyone else and I am trying hard to rectify this but it is almost uncontrollable. When i wake up...I FEEL angry and then I tend to flip out over the smallest thing. I then about 5 minutes later will be apologizing like crazy to my son for yelling as I have taught him that yelling is inappropriate and here I am doing it. At least now...he really just brushes off things...I don't say nasty things but I raise my voice. Then I usually end up crying....I don't want this to affect him, i think that my openness and ability to explain things really helps...I just don't want to damage my son in any way. I have not been nightmaring and a lot of my traumas, I have worked hard on. I just can't seem to shake this nor do I know how to fix it. Does anyone else have this problem and what do you do? I think it may also be do to the fact that I never get three to four hours of sleep straight without waking up, getting up etc so I am never getting a rested sleep. Insomnia has always been a terrible aspect to PTSD that I can't overcome. At one time I was afraid to sleep as I did not want to nightmare, now I feel afraid of what tomorrow is going to bring and then I don't want to sleep because tomorrow will come sooner...crazy thoughts...UUUGGGHHHH!!!!!!!
