My name is Tonya. I hold lots of talents in life and I can do great things however I suffer from anxiety, depression, and PTSD. At my next psychiatrist appointment I'm going to ask advice on decision making and choices and boundaries. Any one else who is struggling with these issues?
Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD)
Anxiety (Including GAD)
I definitely have, and still do have, trouble seeing healthy boundaries. Mostly in the form of being a bit too accommodating.
Hi Tonya, I feel that way nearly every day. I definitely have a hard time saying no to people and then short myself out which leads to depression, anxiety and flares my PTSD. I am medicated and I can obtain a sense of calmness quicker and I mediate and read a lot.
I want to read and meditate more. I think that will really help me a lot too!🤗👍❤️
I started journaling again. That is really helping me so much!
I'm right there with you! I use DBT and meditation for the anxiety. For the depression I am medicated but have been having issues since I had COVID March 2021. I see my psych doctor every 3 months for meds and my therapist every two weeks. It's not how I picture my life knocking on the door frame of 60. But it's a life. Just have to keep working on it and try moving forward. My husband wants to teach me Tai Chi for my anxiety and all. Gotta find the energy first.
I stopped going Tina therapist a few years ago because she always wanted to bring up my past to deal with it but I hate thinking about my past abuse
Boundaries are so hard for me too. Low self esteem & perfectionism is big for me. I feel like if I can't do things perfect I'm either a failure or I shouldn't even bother.
I'm in the same boat. I used to be so good at everything (except feild sports lol). Then trauma happened and now I cant do literally anything.
