Ok....I was wondering if anyone else has this. I have a really hard time accepting and well...beleiving everyone when they say nice things. i am not sure how long I have been like this or if it is just because I am sooooo trying to not hear the negative and before I wasn't really conscious of the fact that I have been this way. Since the PTSD and leaving work, getting older i seem to worry more about well everything, I guess. Others tell me I am pretty. I do look like I am a lot younger than I am but when someone gives me a compliment ...my internal dialouge is stil ya...right. The other day my friend said you are so pretty and in my head I hear...."ya, pretty ugly" my mother said this morning and this is quite unusual "You know you really are a beautiful girl.......you need self confidence, I don't know what happened to you?'' Like WTF???? I just don't know how to gain self confidence back and I want to, oh so bad...I don't know how. I hate to be naked even with myself...Ok...thats not normal. Is this PTSD related? is that why I can't seem to shake this.
