Hello @ddd - sounds like you've got a few issues going on. I wanted to welcome you to the forums. I hope we can help support you along the way. Are you supporting somebody who has ptsd?


Welcome to the community!

We’ve got a fantastic Supporters forum, & this article >>> The ptsd cup explanation <<< can really help to explain/conceptualize why/how PTSD gets cyclic, which can ease a lot of tension. Because that’s the thing with PTSD... it’s super normal for there to be periods of asymptomatic (moving on, or so we thought) bracketed by periods of symptoms kicking back in.
