    hi just joined and feeling overwhelmed by it! Am fighting the urge to completely ignore and dissasociate myself from the situation and once agan i am totally caught off guard by my emotions/re-actions to any situation that isn't planned for and rehersed before-hand in my mind- talk about in-flexible! Guess that's the ptsd exploding out.

    Just wanted to say hello to everyone and to also say thank you for talking honestly. it's nice to be able to just be, and not have to hide ptsd and all nutty stuff that goes with it. Happy healing to all :crazy-eye

    Welcome darkskies,

    Glad you did join and say hello. Even now, if I join a new community, its always a bit nerve racking finding your feet, getting comfortable and feeling part of a community. I understand how hard it is to just make that first step, especially taking something like PTSD so public as we do here.

    Its great to have you, and I really look forward to chatting with you more.

    So glad you're here Darkskies! It is really nice to have a place to come and chat or just listen. Knowing that you are not alone is so valuable.

    I'll have to look it up again, it's written about in one of the books I have about PTSD, but the mood swings from Anxiety to Aggression are very common (and most taxing on our relationships.) I still have them and haven't figured out how to balance the tide yet, but knowing that is is "normal" helps make me feel less like an out of control freak LOL!

    Hello darkskies! Don't worry at all about how you get it off your chest. We've all been there and can empathise. Settle in and make yourself comfortable.
