Everyone should have one;right? I mean for major disasters, fires and escape routes out of your house for various reasons but what an evac plan for PTSD. What I'm getting at is a safe space for sufferers to go in your own home that will let them quietly let you deal with symptoms when they get to a point when they should not be interacting with the people you live with. Do you and your carer know the boundries of what is acceptable and is not? I firmly believe that you should not try to deal with your sufferer's illness when they are in the throws of a severe anxiety attack or when things are a little bit too crazy for them. You should set a space aside for them one of thier choosing. Whether its a sign on the door to a room that simply says "my space" or an entire room designated just for that purpose. Although I don't live with my sufferer; she is well aware of when it is acceptable to and when it's not to be in my space and I know when I shouldn't dare enter hers. It works. It can solve alot of unnecessary problems. I am not saying that it is always okay for PTSDers to hide from their issues but there are times when it is needed.
