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. After a discussion in the chat the other day, some members had a lot of trouble identifying what they felt, ie. putting emotions in word to what they feel. I quickly discussed how you do this by working backwards, by saying what is wrong, what is in your mind, then taking keywords, looking those meanings up, within those meanings you will find emotions, you can then find the definition of an emotion by word, often finding more emotions within ones definition, and you continue on, identifying and putting names to emotions that you feel, not by feeling them, hence you struggle to put a name to them, but identifying them by working backwards. So.... If you struggle to find the emotion you feel... then give me a sentence or two only, and describe what you interpret, and I will use those examples to write a page on how to identify emotions. Its a time intensive process, and one that only the person can commit themselves to, but if you don't know how, then it can be a bit hard... so I will tell you how, but you still have to do the work, or do it with your therapist... I am not going to do the work for you.
