Hello @Deanna. Thank you! It's good to have folks to chat with.Hi Woodsy! Welcome to the forums!
It sucks feeling like your whole life was a lie. I have gone through a lot of that before finally settling on just being who I am now. Can't change the past. Doesn't do me any good to broid about it. I have to move on.There are some really knowledgeable people on here, that check-in from time to time. Or is that, time after time!!! Lol!!! I personally have had PTSD all my life with a late diagnosis. I was pissed in a way because i felt like my life was a lie.. Not knowing. I'm in my 50's as well. I've been going through this thing lately where I don't talk much..
Maybe we go in phases of talking more or less? Sometimes I seem to benefit by talking. Other times talking, and everything else seems useless. Those are white-knuckling it times for me. Gotta get through to the next "better" time.
Exactly, we get out of therapy what we put into it, I think. I enjoy therapy even if it's only to have someone to talk with.At my work ( self) people have no clue.. Totally a different person. Down to earth.. Loving ( which I am in off time) but for me meds have been my friend. I just take a few. I have chronic insomnia which I take meds for and go to counseling ( which for me.. She's a chatterbox and i know its her job) but she did get my attention the other day when she said she had a client that committed suicide. Um.. Personally I don't think she was being honest about that but hey.. Therapy doesn't help everyone but it is what you make it
Yeah, the severe shaking isn't often. And the daily trembling has subsided. The docs won't do anything. Or they'll give me more meds I don't want or won't be able to take.I'm sorry you shake. I'd go to a medical doc for that. I did with my insomnia.
From what I am gathering, the shaking is just part n parcel with anxiety and PTSD. I can live with it for now.
Thanks for reaching out. It is good to meet you. Cute kitty!It's good to meet you and I'm sure I'll inter-react better ( or I hope I will) in the immediate future. Here's a pic of my .
