My boyfriend has PTSD and has been in therapy and on medication for the past 3 years. He has made great improvements and is feeling better about himself ! However, as in many cases of PTSD he has bad days ! And at those times feels very down and depressed ! I am there for him for the duration, I love him very much and will do anything in my power to help him get better ! I tell him "one day at the time and we will conquer this" In my quest to help him I don't know if I am doing something right, I don't know if I am pushing ! Let me explain...He has 2 reacurring nightmares...He used to have them quite frequently, now less and less..but they are still there ! His psychiatrist is trying to get to the bottom of his nightmares...cause they really affect him when it happens. My suggestion to him was "why don't you get hypnotized ?" my reasoning being, once you get to the bottom of what the nightmares truly mean, you can face those demons and move on from what is causing them ! He says he doesn't want to be hypnotized and I don't push him ! but am I being wrong in giving him that option ?
