Thanks so much for sharing the cups article. I read through it last night and it really resonated.Welcome @bizness !!
Not much to be scared of really. It is difficult dealing with PTSD stuff but it doesn't go away if you ignore it either. If there was one single thing I needed (besides this place and communicating with others who just get PTSD) it would be the articles section of the forum.
In specific the PTSD cup article was a humongous help. Being better prepared when we found trauma wwould have been really nice.......
Nearly a decade ago (2006) I wrote The PTSD Cup Explanation, a simple view of how PTSD causes symptoms in day-to-day life. This article is an update to that original piece. Regardless of the type of trauma endured, the PTSD Cup does not change, deviate or apply differently to your circumstance...www.myptsd.com
Spoon theory is something I also use to talk about my internal resources (it’s a theory used to describe living with chronic illness/neurodivergence) but I always felt it didn’t quite describe how stress has such a big impact on me/us. Cups is great.
