Sufferer Trying this

Hi, I'm sort of new. I posted awhile back about trying to get a certain therapist and the frustrations, nothing deep or personal. My therapist says I need more support, I only see him every other week because we can barely afford that. I have so much social anxiety I had to ground myself before starting to type because I had an anxiety attack. I was diagnosed with PTSD a couple of years ago, out of the blue. My therapist has since clarified it as cPTSD. I have so much anxiety about being criticized or even perceived criticism that socializing feels impossible. Hard to find support when you're terrified to be around people. My head knows that everything I say and do can't be wrong, but one little thing and well, it's bad right now. I don't want to be around people or talk to people, I'm afraid I'll offend them or be triggered and go off on them. I'm afraid they'll find something wrong with me and I'll be back in that circle of not being able to do anything right.
 
my therapy peers are the most consistent thread in my own therapy network. the pro support is valuable, but it is my peers who help me translate those highfalutin concepts into every day life. it helps me considerable to know i am not alone with all these psycho weirds.

i hope it works as well for you as it does for me.
gentle support while you give it a whirl to see how it twirls.

Thank you. My therapist is really great, unlike others I've had. But he keeps stressing I need more support. I do feel very alone.

I am new her too, I have some social anxiety, it was a lot for me to type 'out loud' to strangers about my situation and cPTSD. I just learned that is what is driving my flip flops of anxiety and depression. I also have a therapist and I was only seeing her a few time a month due to covid and schedules. I am getting to see her more now and it helps, but the support here in just one post feels great and once I saw that it made me relax about being here and getting the support from others that understand. I hope you find the relief of support here as well and learn to be gentle with yourself in your journey.
 
Welcome! I was like you when I first came here. I would post, then leave for a few days until I worked up the courage to look at the responses. I'm a lot better now thanks to the help of others here and the interaction with my peers. Hope to see you around.
Thank you. Thank you for the encouragement!
