I posted this to my page.
On good days…….I consider my PTSD symptoms, to be an indication of the hurt and harm, still within my mind, body, heart and soul, that have not yet been processed. So I view this in a positive way, of knowing what I need to work on, to help me heal and that I will heal and I know I am, slowly, but surely! 🙂
On bad days………I consider my PTSD symptoms to be deeply unfair, cruel, devastating, and really $%&#ing horrible. And feel needed self sorrow and grieving for all that has occurred in my life, that I should never have endured. And I feel like it will never end and I cannot possibly bare any more of this suffering… 😦
Pow!!! There’s some good old trauma induced Black & White thinking for you! :-O
But, sometimes, there are areas in between these two ways of thinking. Yeah, I really need to work on this increasing…
But, they are all normal for trauma, and that is okay.
I try really hard, to have self compassion.
Somewhere there is probably an angel that looks like this…
