Peer support subsequent to trauma contributes to full recovery

Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) -- including complex trauma (cPTSD) -- is debilitating, breaking down the body through anxiety and stress, and it poses a significant suicide risk in sufferers. MyPTSD seeks to help and inform those who are directly or indirectly affected by these conditions through peer-to-peer support and educational resources.

What Are You Feeling Today? Not Thinking, Rather Feeling! Can You Identify Yours?

    I'll start. ................

    I feel a greatly alarmed.
    I feel very angry.
    I feel cautious.
    I feel confused.
    I feel Depressed.

    I feel disgusted with the influences of the world. Specifically tv and its content, as well as, gen. socially acceptable, societal hidden teachings.

    I feel distanced from contact and/or intimacy with family, friends, people in general (all of humanity). Intimacy to me does not mean sex.

    I feel embarrassment, for having been so vulnerable in my past and for so long, and for now feeling so wounded and confused. I feel humiliated.

    I feel horrifed as I continue to be honest with myself about my trauma(s).

    I guess I identified some of my feeling tonight, well at least at a glance and as far down as the H's on this list:

    Guess I didn't set too good of an example here, bc I added in some of what I think with what I feel. That wasn't my original goal here. Anyhow, well at least I focused chiefly on what I feel.

    That's what this thread is about simply identifying chiefly what we feel on any given day. I suppose, attempts at too great of restrictions or perfection would be boring anyways.

    Or, if we are not presently feeling, we could identify what we don't feel, but wished we did.

    I feel:


    I'm unsure how I lost my faith in God for so long
    I wonder how I could let that happen
    I felt timid at church today and out of my element
    I felt confused and suspicious of the people at church
    I don't understand why one of the members wouldn't speak to me. Maybe because he is friends with my son, and I kicked my son out of the house? Unsure????
    I feel an enormous amount of love for God and human beings
    Unsure as to why I can't stand human contact even though I have compassion and care about them.
    I feel tired because I only got 3 hours of sleep last night
    I feel I am addicted to the internet and need to keep off of it.

    I don't feel angry for the first time in two days
    I don't feel crazy

    I am frightened. I am scared. I am in a panic/ Anxiety mode that has come over me like a wave. This has hit me right between the eyes and came up totally unexpectedly. I am not up discussing this right now. I have however, sent Anthony a PM about this and I sure hope he can shed some light on this.

    Hopefully, I will be able to enlighten the group later. I am extremely unnerved by this recent wave of __________ that is going on with me right now! I certainly do not understand what is happening to me.

    Anyway, you asked what I was feeling right now. You got it

    Nausea induced by anxiety and fear
    very frightened of the day

    Probably feel all those feelings because I am going to be meeting with the doctor today-first time in 2 1/2 weeks-and I am petrified at facing the terrible events of this past holiday. Would rather just take it out on myself and hide at home (or at the gym).

    I feel anxious, fearful, and confused.

    I have therapy today and am going to talk about how I am feeling and thinking in regards to writing a letter to my mom. Thus the anxiety, fear, and confusion.

    irritated because I can't sleep yet again.
    tired self explanatory
    disgusted that every time I get woke up I can't go back to sleep.
    Upset that I jumped and yelled when my daughter touched me while sleeping
    hopeful that my son is going to start speaking to me after the silent treatment for 6 weeks.
    grateful that I drove 8 hours without no major panic attacks and it was pouring down rain.

    What a great thread, you'all have made this. Not that I wish such painful feelings on anyone of us, as certainly I do not. In fact, I found them somewhat difficult to read, what with the reality of some of these feelings. Yet, I will say regardless of trauma it does allow many to identify and know that we're very much alike at times, in this way (emotions) and the most obvious PTSD.

    Thank you all for getting this thread started. Also, Seeking Nirvana and Nie thank you as well for adding your felt positive emotions as well. I almost did later too, but they didn't last long enough for me to do so. I had been feeling some competency the other day after much house cleaning and some other accomplishment.

    Tonight I feel, stuck, trapped, obligated, powerless and unable to communicate. At least when I can't talk or write about what's bothering me, bc I've tryed already lately and simply cannot, I can mostly simply say how I'm feeling.

    I feel confused on some things today, but confident in the areas I am not lost on. I guess my mind is feeling absolute which is good. I am a bit drained too. My mind is pooped but resolve is strong.

    I feel calm, almost peaceful- which I have come to appreciate these moments.
    I feel grateful and connected to a friend I lost touch with.
    I feel less fearful about exploring my feelings about experiences at work.

    I feel scared- my car was making a odd noise driving home from work this morning. I have to work again tonight. I feel tearful and I don't know why. I feel weak for still feeling like this.

    I feel very cold and frightened.

    Probably because I had an enlightening meeting with my doctor, today, which has left me feeling as though my future is doomed.

    I feel anxious, I slept walked last night and answered the phone and dreamed talked to our new guest here at the forum, nonabug, she said I was talking about the red balloon on the shelf. At least I know I dream of good things too.
    I finally told her that I was sleeping because she thought I was in a flashback. lol.
    I feel racy, like a flashback is coming on.
    I feel sleepless, insomnia has winked its ugly eye at me again.
    I feel happy, new relationship and a five year old little girl who is precious added in.
    I feel happy to help others.
    I feel almost normal, today only, day to day since I am born everyday and die every night and have no tomorrows.
    I feel content, today.
    well since I have a few positives in there, I'm gonna stop on a good note for a change.

    okay now today,
    eight hours of sleep in the last four days
    feeling like a flashback is coming on
    understood enough to know my ptsd side effects are not burdening my boyfriend, we laugh at my antics, I let him know when I am agitated, then I make a joke and we laugh.
    bitchy without voicing it, except for vile and humorous jokes to blow off steam
    just waiting to see if the bomb will fall, and it I do have a flashback, hopefully it won't be what I call a boomer, use of weapons...
    glad there is a format called ptsd forum
    yup, that's me today
