        Seriously, so hard! I thought healing was rough....putting my life back together is so much scarier!

      Went out on a limb and disclosed my ptsd struggles to someone new. Response? “Your disorder is narcissistic.” #VulnerabilityFail. Moving on!

        That person's comment is so off the map. It is so way beyond the pale of anything I've ever heard of before. Yes, move on. Don't question your reaction. Take your time. And maybe wait longer before disclosing to someone new next time. You don't deserve to hear that kind of crap. That's what it is -- total crap. Hugs.

        Thanks for your support. In true Eve fashion I am now second guessing myself and thinking I just misunderstood or I am getting rid of people needlessly, that I shouldn’t have taken offense to his comments. But, his words were harsh, I didn’t need his pity.

        It doesn't matter if you misinterpreted that -- he was rude to you, and that's all there is to it. It's great that you're moving on!

      WRAP: Did some more reading on it. Don't really think it would beneficial or work for me at this point.

        There were some aspects that wouldn't work...for the moment anyway. For example my external support system would be limited at the moment to my dog and cat. Kind of sad but I am a loner. Having said that there are prob some other things from the program that I could put into everyday use the that would help.

        Dogs and cats are good support for now, in general, though :)

        Sorry your thoughts are bad. Sending good ones, one of which is random strangers on the internet care about you and value your input, and are hoping for your healing.

        Certain songs help... Today I’m doing household chores so hopefully that will keep me distracted. The thoughts are back today, plus I’m drowsy from meds.

        My night time meds knock me out too Eve bloody good job too lol :) at least last night I was spared from nightmares and disturbing dreams but it's horrible to be woken by them and then trying to get back to sleep afterwards is a pain in the butt too. And sometimes when I go back to sleep my dreams are even weirder than the 1s that woke me up in the 1st place grrrr lol xx

        Good for you Eve :) it sure ain't bloody easy is it mate that acceptance thing? I've had to work on that a lot just lately myself. Appreciating the process is just as hard. I used to be very resentful of having to work so hard to overcome this illness. Now I just try to go with the flow and my resentment to Him Upstairs lol :) bless ya xx

        Today it hit me that those who get out of jail must go through something similar. Thinking “IM FREEEEEE!” but there’s still a TON of work to be done to rebuild their lives, battles they must win, prejudices they will encounter. Blaaaaaaaaaaah!

        So far, so good! Very little unwanted sedation PLUS getting the benefits I need. I think I found the sweet spot balance for my two most needed meds, even if I did have to drop my prazosin (and have to deal with nightmares). Thanks all!

        Sorry to hear about the nightmares. I, too, had to drop prazosin despite the relief it gave me. But in general this sounds like great news and I'm happy to hear it! Thanks for the update!
