Healing From Complex Trauma & PTSD/CPTSD

A journey to healing from complex trauma.


Fatigue. Need to withdraw. It’s okay, Jesus modelled this type of self care.

I had been hopeful I was past feeling like this. Clearly not. I still get fatigued by the issues of others and it drains me emotionally, physically, mentally. I’m overwhelmed. And I am exhausted. Again.

So, I will do what is needed. Withdraw. Stay away from what fatigues me, as much as is possible. Keep focussing on the only person I can trust. The only person to be relied upon. The only person who can sustain me. Jesus.

Withdrawing completely.

I know I completely overwhelmed. All my PTSD symptoms are increasing. Nightmares, anxiety, fear, withdrawing.

The issues in my marriage, I can’t cope with. My counselling is ended and I can’t cope with it.

I don’t want to be alive and I must for my children.

I’m withdrawing from everything, shutting down my community page, as I can’t deal with the daily issues I have to deal with. Withdrawing from everything.

I know I am now completely overwhelmed, completely numb.
