    Does anyone feel like they have a before and after phase

    Was hit with an situation in the early months of 2020, when Corona swung into full force. Wasn't directly related to the virus but heightened stress load and anxieties at the work place ultimately caused me to sort of have an emotional event that affected me profoundly. Ever since, and knowing...

    Dealing with boundary issues in therapy

    Thank you, it's what has me most perturbed. The same thing happened with my therapist where it feels like there was no follow-up when things went south and I haven't even spoken to her about the therapy ending (and it seems like there for sure never will be now) even though Iw as getting really...

    Dealing with boundary issues in therapy

    Well to round the topic off, got done today speaking to the supervisor and it seems I'm done at the place (the practice as a whole including my old t and supervisor). I'm pretty flummoxed still but everything I saw also talking with the supervisor etc. gave me such bad vibes. I had a talk with...

    Dealing with boundary issues in therapy

    I sent her the message, we had a session afterwards but sadly it felt like we landed in the same vicious circle again of me feeling hurt and her feeling like it's just a difference of experience we have about the event. We had a mutual session with her supervisor but sadly it seems like it's...

    Dealing with boundary issues in therapy

    So a week since my last message, I'd posted a reply before but it got eaten by the server outage I think you may be right. I reread my original message that I wrote the other day and it suddenly "clicked" since I said in my original message, while phone contact wasn't necessary, it was...

    Dealing with boundary issues in therapy

    Well after 3 weeks finally met up with my T again, didn't feel half bad but am still struggling with how to continue. We talked about what had happened again and I started talking about wanting to respect boundaries etc. but as soon as I broached the subject she said she didn't feel like I...

    I had problems with EMDR not done correctly

    Sorry, I know from experience how awful that can be. Did EMDR with a therapist once (wasn't the first time but discontinued my previous therapy before that), he was nice but the EMDR went COMPLETELY sideways and I remember walking out of the session still half in my trauma-daze, it wasn't a...

    Dealing with boundary issues in therapy

    Thank you for the comments all, I've read through most of them and will read through the remainder of the thread posted above I find it really difficult dealing with this. Part may be that some events happened last years which really damaged my trust and I find myself just being incredibly...

    Dealing with boundary issues in therapy

    Hey everyone, I've been in therapy for 4 months and something occured a few weeks ago that left me pretty shook and wondering if anyone else might've experienced the same or have so tips how to deal with it Basically, a few weeks ago I sent my T a short message after a session. I said in the...

    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...
