    Stuck in therapy - Undecided on how to proceed

    Thanks again for the comments guys. I've contacted my current T, I've told her I wanted to talk and to just communicate about what happened. I wanted to kind of avoid going there and digging into the past but I'm seeing right now that trying to avoid the difficulties I experienced with my former...

    Stuck in therapy - Undecided on how to proceed

    Yeah I've been trying to find a T that suits me for a long time. For some reason or another it is not happening - my current job coach (helping me with job market) is someone who I do feel I have a connection with and I can talk with. Of course she is a job coach, so I can hardly unload all my...

    Stuck in therapy - Undecided on how to proceed

    Well guys, here I am 2 months later and I'm finding what you guys are saying may hold true more than I would wish... My plan like in my last post I stated, was to find a new T, ignore all the stuff that came up last therapy, and just get the EMDR so I can move on. But, after talking with the...

    Word finding difficulties

    Thank you for your reply. Glad your new regime is working out for you. I find the more stressed I am it gets worse, but I have also read that the brain can recover from stress-induced damage (to brain areas involved with memory) with time and proper living conditions (exercise supposedly helps)...

    Revisiting old memories

    Hey all. It concerns mostly stuff that happened during early middle school years. I was in a class which I'd label as a pretty toxic environment. Among my peers at the time, bullying and mocking was the norm. I did things I am now not proud of, and things were mutually dealt back to me that...

    Revisiting old memories

    Yes, sorry, my original post was a bit rambly. I received EMDR for a specific event unrelated to other aspects I guess that I'm exploring now. I'm not even sure what I'm asking. I guess I still feel tied to thoughts of others, judgements that I can't seem to fully release. Trying to come to...

    Revisiting old memories

    Hello all, Recently using techniques I've been going back to certain areas in my life and I'm finding that there is a lot of unprocessed stuff that hit me a lot harder than I thought it would. I'm revisiting areas of my life when I was really young, a lot of stuff happened then and I'm coming to...

    Stuck in therapy - Undecided on how to proceed

    Thanks for the replies, I appreciate it a lot. I sat down and talked with her, but even though I felt she was trying a lot too it really didn't feel like we were getting anywhere meaningful together. She also admitted to not being specialized in attachement (she treats psychosis, I got referred...

    Word finding difficulties

    Yeah, figured stress may be a culprit. Just noticing that sometimes pronouncing basic words causes trouble which I find unnerving, but do notice it is worse when stressed (but also present when not stressed). But also found that PTSD affects brain areas connected with memory and the like so...

    sexual self harm?

    I feel if it is linked to some previous bad sexual experience you've had somehow it may be harmful to enact on that kind of hurt you carry with you. If you don't have any negative associations with sex/self harm it may be a different story, but I'd still thread carefully, a kink is ok as long as...

    Word finding difficulties

    Hi guys, does anyone here experience difficulties pronouncing/finding words post-PTSD? I've noticed in the last few months I have more troubles finding/pronouncing words and it's a thing that is really annoying me because it seems harder to even form sentences at times. I think it may be due to...

    Sufferer Another PTSD'er

    Hey guy, how are you all (hopefully well all things considered with this condition). I'm 33 and suffered a traumatic experience about a year ago which caused me to have EMDR treatment but I'm still suffering consequences, sadly it has not fully dissipated and has actually become more salient...

    Stuck in therapy - Undecided on how to proceed

    Hey guys, I'm currently in treatment but feeling really undecided on how to proceed so thought maybe someone could give me some outside perspective on this one. Basically, I've been in therapy for PTSD for a year now. At the start the working relationship with my therapist was good, we focused...
