I’ve been struggling for 12 years plus. I am exhausted and my anxiety has not gotten to a place where I can feel better. Any ideas?

      Can totally understand. I have childhood ptsd and ptsd from something that happened over 11 years ago and it’s still a struggle. I try to be mindful and keep people who understand me close. Knowing yourself and your triggers can help a lot too. Keep a diary for yourself on your habits, mood, medication, and triggers. Keep doing therapy, if you are, and keep your head up. I’ve learned that trauma doesn’t really disappear, but how we react towards the past traumas in the present gives us the control on how we want to be.

      First, you are a strong person for being here with so much that has happened. Recognize that first and foremost! Second, you’re a strong mother, because you know what needs to be done, and despite you going back to bed when they’re done, or maybe even when it’s half assessed, it’s okay. Because being a mom is hard in itself without PTSD and depression! Do what you can and give your body and mind rest. There should be no shame in that. It will be okay, because you’re recognizing the things you want to change, and are actively searching! Understanding how huge that is, is something a lot of us who have gone through so much, don’t recognize as being “huge enough”. But it is!! You got this. You can make the change. It will be an uphill battle, and you’ll tend to fall sometimes. Remember you’re human and all you’ve went through. But don’t let it define you either. We just need to take breaks when we need to, and push ourselves to our limit. Love yourself and don’t hold back!

        @LadyKarma thank you. I’ve also suffered from an enormous amount of childhood trauma into my early adulthood. I endured my first panic attack at 19. I had no idea what was happening to me. The scariest thing I’ve ever had to endure. I have a history of sexual assault/abuse, parents both were drug addicts. I went to live in the streets at 13 years old left to fend for myself. Sleeping in the rain on the streets at 3 am with my suitcase beside me. Even though I don’t dwell on the things or so I think I don’t. Maybe subconsciously I am. I lost my mother in 2011 it was a very hard time. Still is. I try to be strong for my babies. They’re my rocks. Most days though I tend to keep going back to my bed after doing my duties as a mother. Taking my daughter to school changing diapers and feeding. I always come back to my bed. I am desperate to stop this unhealthy cycle. I just don’t know how

      Meditation when I can do it and concentrate on it fully works out or just journaling
