    Do you need PTSD to post here?

    Interesting thread. Personally, I think formal diagnosis is irrelevant, as it's impossible to confirm or disprove if anyone who writes in the forum actually has the diagnosis.

    Is this good treatment?

    Just a side note. Triggers can generalize. For example, the original trigger maybe physical touch or sex but eventually it can become just thinking or doing anything in that direction.

    Dissociation during exposure

    Actually, as far as I know, you are not supposed to dissociate during exposure since that way you /your brain won't be able to process things and "file" them as past events. Dissociation keeps the memory in fragments and hinders the connection.

    Wake Up Don't Know Where I am and Who I'm With

    I have similar experiences and mine are due to dissociative parts intruding. For example, I will lie in bed at night and I will feel younger and actually kind of think I am in my childhood home in bed. It feels strange.

    Dissociation?

    Has the following ever happened to anyone. I was reading about child neglect an its effects and thinking about how things that happened in the past weren't bad enough to be called trauma (not just talking about child neglect) then all of a sudden I got really, really tired and had to lie down...

    DID Every Part wants to do something different

    Thanks for all your replies. @JadeB. I do that sometimes. But sometimes I just feel rediculous doing kids stuff. I know I shouldn't but I do. @TruthSeeker I like the Idea of the sticky notes and will definitely try that. And yes, breaks are important as my energy is still pretty limited...

    DID Every Part wants to do something different

    I'm kind of new at this DID thing. Well, actually I've the Diagnosis for like 2 years but I have been unwilling and still have problems accepting it. It just feels crazy. Hence communication has not happened a whole lot. But I guess there's no way around.

    DID Every Part wants to do something different

    It seems today everyone of my parts wants to do something different and in the end nothing gets done. I started decluttering the office, which really needs to be done. But I can't stay on track because a part is deeply depressed and the young ones don't like adult stuff anyway. One of them cried...

    Do you experience instant pain and then drop into depression...

    I could imagine those remarks or looks or attitude are actually triggers. Anything that was there during trauma.

    Do you experience instant pain and then drop into depression...

    Could it be a body memory? Other than that emotional pain is actually processed like physical pain in the brain. Thus the connection makes sense either way.

    Childhood How would one define this? Sexual abuse? Neglect? Nothing?

    I know everything you've written and there's other stuff. I just wanted to know how that one experience could be classified.

    Childhood How would one define this? Sexual abuse? Neglect? Nothing?

    I'm basically just trying to understand where the T in my PTSD comes from. I've been diagnosed by more than one professional and just don't understand where the T is. I know it sounds strange and I do admit all the symptoms are there but the why kind of remains elusive to me. All I remember...

    Childhood How would one define this? Sexual abuse? Neglect? Nothing?

    I was wondering how to definean experience I had as a child (7/8 yrs.). My mom had this gay female friend who seemingly was into my mom. So one night after we all or only I bathed (not sure about that part). Anyway were all walking around naked in our bathroom. This woman came to my parents bed...

    I can't handle my depression cycles

    Just for clarification. What does being normal entail for you? During the normal week are there really no signs of depression? Depression doesn't have to be continuous, it has ups and downs also.

    Sudden urge to run

    How did you manage to stop? Do you know the reason(s) behind the "running"? The thing is, when I try to suppress the impulse, I can't for too long. It just doesn't pass. It is there and wants to be lived so to speak.

    Sudden urge to run

    Does anyone else have the sudden urge to run from their current situation? I don't mean as in "I want to get a new life" but as in "I have to get out of here". This urge can last for anytime between a few minutes to a hours and has actually lead to me driving for 6h straight .

    Sleep... personally I've been struggling with that too. I try to keep a somewhat consistent schedule. But since I become really dysregulated without enough sleep, I've decided that during the times I for whatever reason I can't keep to my schedule, I'll sleep whenever I can however much that may...
