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. Okay, most of us have recurrent images or recurring nightmares, no matter what the trauma was. If you're like me, it seems random, you don't know what triggered it, and you hate it. You wake up angry that it happened again, and once again, your own mind has tortured you when you wanted to be resting. I found an article on how simple and adaptable it can be to work with these in 20 minutes a day, and that by working on the dream/nightmare level, and being able to work through this ON OUR OWN, we take back our power over our own minds and that it helps with other symptoms of our PTSD. Okay, that hooked my attention. I read the article and need to try this right away before I forget. I do not recommend everyone here do this. I will try it because I believe healing originates in what I do or do not do, and has little to do with what others do, even a therapist. If you are in therapy, maybe you should print the article or mention it to the T first, as only you and your T can decide. If you're not in therapy, well, this might be too much. I am not currently able to be in T due to financial and the fact I can't find a trauma specialist in my town (there are not any) and need to work out how to locate one in the state and drive. WARNING: Link contains the narrative of a WWII nightmare, which may be triggering for combat trauma or violence of any kind. That said, it gives us a sense of what our soldiers have had to live through, and that helps us have compassion. Here is the link. http://drkathleenyoung.wordpress.com/2010/03/09/trauma-treatment-nightmare-reprocessing/ I welcome any feedback from anyone who has tried this or a form of this.
