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. I have been seeing my therapist since February, and am able to talk a little more than I could before about my trauma without breaking down, and I am learning to control the anxiety that going to the appointments produces in me a lot better too. At the last appointment, however, she said that she wants me to do half an hour of 'homework' each day - that is, half an hour of tackling my fears and exposing myself to triggers. I guess I'll try it, though I am very apprehensive and threatened by the idea - after all, it can't make me much more grumpy and horrible to be around than I am already . . . but has anyone else's therapist told them to do this? I haven't seen any such thing mentioned anywhere on here, and wanted to know what other people's thoughts were on a structured way of facing triggers as opposed to just doing it when one feels able to.
