Any advice on how to enjoy fireworks without it triggering ptsd? Sudden noises always make my heart rate go up but I also want to be able to enjoy the events. Every year on the 4th I always struggle with it and my family just doesn’t realize it’s a symptom so they always joke about how jumpy I am too which doesn’t help issues.
Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD)
Noise cancelling headphones and weed and Metoprolol for me ❤️ hope you can enjoy them without stressing out!
taking breaks if needed, earplugs or noise cancelling headphones, and preparing in advance by doing some self care can all be helpful!
As they have said before me the headphones and preparing yourself in advance are what I do every year.. good luck I know it's hard
