Does anyone else have severe PTSD where the cause of the PTSD isn’t only a past event, but is ongoing? It refires every single day? And not only as a flashback, I mean it literally happens over and over again.

      @Snezia I have those types of thoughts too whenever I see random accounts trying to add me on social media I think it’s my abuser too trying to find me and hurt me again

      The monster has gotten way too strong. I use to write, but now when I turn on the computer, the monster just puts me to sleep. I’m never tired and I sleep all the time. I hate it. I stopped taking my meds for 48hours. Not because I’m trying to stay off them, but because my meds make my tastebuds all funny and I hate how my favorite foods taste when I’m on them. If I can go 72hrs, I’ll be able to drink a real Coke without it tasting like battery acid. It tastes sooooooo good! Too bad it’s a dangerous game to be playing. The monster is gonna kick my ass even harder for it…

      This is super common for a lot of us who have ptsd from medical trauma related to ongoing medical conditions. It's very hard to deal with! You are definitely not alone. ❤️❤️

      My PTSD has been so so bad lately. The medicine and therapy definitely are helping but it is overwhelming and takes up a good portion of my week still. I still have to be in contact with my abuser for legal reasons since we had a kid together so I definitely feel like I’m still being abused even though I haven’t seen him in years but he is so horrible over emails and messages it’s just so hard to heal when I have this to deal with too

        @Cece7 I erased my social media presence 5 years ago to hide from my abussers. Today I had to post on FaceBook for work. I hadn’t seen a FB page in months and months. Even though it was for work, I felt like everyone on there could see me. All the requests would be for me. All theses people searching for me. The fact that they were all strangers even made it worse. I felt like my attackers would come to me as strangers. That’s how they’re going to finally get me to kill myself.

      Yes and it feels like there's nothing you can do. Even with taking medicine and therapy it doesn't help. Nightmares, flashbacks and things that happen to your body that you can't explain

        @Netta And they are constant. Even if I make it through most of a day without a flashback, that thought will trigger a tidal wave!!!!
