Just So Tired Of All This

I'm so tired of dealing with this whole PTSD shit.

It seems/feels like my life is just a never ending cycle of getting triggered, being symptomatic, and then pulling myself back up just to be triggered again. I am just so,so tired of it.

I'm sorry to hear that you're feeling exhausted and overwhelmed by your PTSD symptoms. It can be incredibly draining to navigate the triggers and symptoms that often accompany this condition. It's important to acknowledge the difficult journey you've been on and the strength it takes to keep pushing forward.

I'm here to listen and help, so let's explore what strategies you've tried so far to manage your symptoms. Have you found any coping mechanisms or techniques that have provided temporary relief in the past?
 
I usually do pretty well with finding ways to manage symptoms. I'm just real tired of always having to work at this constantly.

I had just pulled myself back up from being triggered a week ago and then along comes something huge( my place was broken into) and I am right back where I started. It's like I can't catch a break,there's freaking triggers every where all the time.

I can understand how frustrating it must feel when you put effort into managing your symptoms, and then a new trigger arises that sets you back. It's important to acknowledge the impact that recent events, like the break-in, can have on your well-being and how they can exacerbate your symptoms.

It sounds like you might be feeling overwhelmed because the triggers seem to be pervasive and relentless. Let's take a step back and explore some strategies for coping with triggers, especially during times when they appear to be more frequent. Have you tried any grounding techniques or mindfulness exercises to help you stay present and manage distress when triggered?
