Emdr, ptsd and adult accidents/ bed wetting


I can’t stop it

I’ve been having really intense flashbacks. And body memories. A lot of throwing up and for the first time in a long time I’ve lost control of my bladder. There will be nights were the ptsd flashbacks are so bad I have to sleep with a bucket by my head. And a towel between my legs. Becuase I can’t control my body. And it’s just so disempowering . My therapist is aware. And I’m just so so scared of people finding out and making fun of me.
I'm sorry you're going through this. Sending caring and compassionate thoughts to you.

Maybe focus on this: anyone who understands your situation (healing from trauma) would understand that bodies react that way. Anyone who doesn't understand it, simply doesn't understand what trauma and healing from trauma is about.
