    I really hate this whole business of feeling like garbage to get better. I went from full live in hospitalization to partial hospitalization where I went everyday from 9 to 3 and then home a nap and get the kids. Now I am home and no nothing till next Friday.

    To top it off I forgot to bring my meds with me when I went out tonight which sentmy great day spiralling way down.:frown: Its funny I can remember being happy today but now it seems like such a distant memory.

    So no therapy till next Friday, no med doctor till July 5th and I have no clue as to if it is normal to feel so lost in the maze of getting better. Just great:smile:

    Sounds pretty normal. I hated feeling like I did and still do at times healing. It is hard and Lord it sucks. I am still healing, I have months I maintain but at other times I am relearning to heal.

    Just follow the treatment here to heal. The info section if you utilize it will move you on. You can get better. It takes forever it seems, but when you look back and you see what you have weathered healing and you have so many more good days than bad one day... You see it was worth all that pain to get there.

    You don't notice right off, it takes a damn long time. But this forum will be here for those storms. That I know.

    Gawd...ain't that the truth!

    Janis,

    No one wants to feel 'like garbage to feel better', but it does work. You just have to keep pushing and fighting and you slowly get there. Eventually all of the baby steps you take do add up.

    Taking things 'one day at a time' has been a real help to keeping my anxiety levels lowered. If I focus on the day I'm in and not worry about what's up coming I then don't (hopefully) over-think or obsess about anything that might or might not happen.

    Thank you for the advice. I just hate days when the depressions hit harder then the anxiety and it seems so hard to get better. I have never been patient with anything always wanting to get to the finish linewith out feeling any of the pain. I guess now I get to feel that pain. Hopefully taking some advice and hanging around here will make it seem like lesswith taking it one day at a time

    sometimes I get so confused, too much crap coming at me and then sometimes I am right on, articulate and strong but in those confused and spiraling times I just hate myself.

    Funny, my husband and I just had a 'discussion' of the very same issue the other day. I was reminded by him that patience has never been one of my strong points. Not quite that way, though. As pissed as I was at him that night for fussing at me, it did have the desired effect of making me stop and realize that me kicking and cussing about the PTSD isn't going to make it get better sooner. Accepting things outside of my control has always been difficult for me. I've been working on getting acceptance of the fact that just about the only I have control over in this world is my reaction to things. Even with that...old habits are difficult to break and are sneaky little buggers.

    Nice to know I'm not the only one trying to rush to the finish line.

    Ah and I thought I was the only one Marlene who tries to rush to the finish line.

    Today is a better day with my hubby reminding me to take the advice of 1 day at a time. I actually started laughing when my wonderful kids threw a empty juice box at me while driving. Normally I would have flipped over it then I headed to the park and put it in the past and had a great dinner
