    I'm back, doing better, working on emotional dysregulation

    So, After @Freddyt 's comment, I read little more about moving things around. The pharmacist at my doc's office said to keep it the same product, ratio, etc. and then increase. Nope. I did that for the 1st few weeks, but I don't want to acclimate to a certain type or amount and need more (more...

    I'm back, doing better, working on emotional dysregulation

    So I didn't 't see your reply. In our state (NY) the oils (tinctures) are usually a combo of both, at different ratios, so I am using a combo. Within 1.5 days, I couldn't believe the effect on anxiety - so much lower (Amygdala less activated?). With anxiety lower, I've had much less triggering...

    I'm back, doing better, working on emotional dysregulation

    I joined this forum back in 2016 when the big traumas happened. I don't even remember joining the forum. Brain fog much? Overall, I have received a good deal of therapy and I am doing much better than 5 years ago! Emotional dysregulation and shame are areas I am working on now. I have been...

    Sufferer Stopped Husband's Near-fatal Suicide Attempt And Now I Have Ptsd.

    No business or kids. Yep - huge trust issues now. I used to trust him impeccably. It seems like I am doing more "relationship work" than he is. My world was completely rocked and I can't even imagine working right now (my therapist agrees). Just for now I need to work through the tough parts...

    Sufferer Stopped Husband's Near-fatal Suicide Attempt And Now I Have Ptsd.

    @Muse - thank you. The police officers and the pastor at the scene told me I was a smart cookie for tracking him like that as it saved his life. It wasn't a gesture, it was a real attempt and he was determined. The police at the scene said it was the worst attempt they ever saw. I have a new...

    Is Your Abuser Still In Your Life?

    Simple answer - yes. I am married to my husband. On one hand, I can't really call him my abuser as he became mentally ill and I stopped his bloody, near-fatal suicide. BUT. He is my abuser b/c he divulged seeing prostitutes (3 secret cell phones and more) shortly before his attempt. I got PTSD...

    Ptsd After Infidelity

    I found out my husband of 23 years had been seeing prostitutes. We are trying to work on it. The feelings of betrayal are monumental. He attempted suicide and I stopped him and that's what triggered my PTSD. Gory and shocking, to say the least. I hear you about not throwing away a long-term...

    Other Anyone Else Have Ptsd From Witnessing/stopping A Suicide Attempt? Or After Infidelity?

    Abstract - Thank you so much for your thoughtful response. I agree with what you said and you laid it out so well. I feel the "big trigger" was me witnessing the suicide attempt. He was 2 minutes from truly dying, according to the 1st responders on the scene (they said it was the worst one they...

    I'm Opening Up To My Family About My Feelings And It's Hard

    Appeasing abusive parents. I know about that one. It has helped me to write things out when I feel really stressed. I can appreciate being "the one" who people come to, but now I am a mess and I need support. Hope you get what you need.

    Other Anyone Else Have Ptsd From Witnessing/stopping A Suicide Attempt? Or After Infidelity?

    joeylittle - my EMDR therapist feels there's a lot in my family history relating to trauma, so she wants to go back to those events, but understands that I need help now with the flashbacks of the scene. I have been researching sex addiction and the affect on wives and it's considered trauma as...

    Other Anyone Else Have Ptsd From Witnessing/stopping A Suicide Attempt? Or After Infidelity?

    It's so hard to tease it all apart. How do I support my husband to wellness after Major Depressive dx and after I stopped him from killing himself, after he disclosed that he had been seeing prostitutes? What are the major "players" that I need to work on first? My EMDR therapist wants to start...
