It can be a bit of a learning curve - but people won't be as harsh as you may fear. Most of the people here understand that sometimes ptsd gets the best of us and we say the wrong thing -- I'm spectacularly good at totally screwing up and I'm still hereI'm a little nervous when I write something or respond to someone else, afraid of using the wrong words to say what I'm trying to say.
I felt I had lost some IQ points, then I took an IQ test and found out I had lost more than a few. But that was reportedly from PTSD, not a brain injury. Either way, you are not alone.I feel I've lost some IQ points.
Thank you, I like the topics (I relate to many!), the people are kind and interacting with others who experience PTSD is more meaningful than talking to someone in their office with a wall of degrees!Great start to your diary. Glad you have found good support here it is a very good place to share, support, be supported, and validated when we are full of self-doubt.
I get the new phone overload!!! But you'll get it and have a little computer right in your hand.
And 'normal' is overrated!!! I don't wish to be normal, that sounds boring and restricting. Sorry for your brain injury but you sound just like all of us here.
Sorry to hear that...PTSD is a life changer, for sure!I felt I had lost some IQ points, then I took an IQ test and found out I had lost more than a few. But that was reportedly from PTSD, not a brain injury. Either way, you are not alone.
Glad to see you have started a diary. I imagine you have lots to say.
I'm always open to feedback/suggestions!That's one of the many great things about using our diary to sort things out. It doesn't have to make sense when we share it. And everyone will understand. And if you are open to feedback or ask for it, others will share suggestions and if nothing else give you kudos for sharing!!! Just take your time and do what feels right to you.
