depressing psychotheraphy sessions ...... coping with ptsd ? - February 1st 2013, 11:50 AM

This thread has been labeled as triggering, particularly on the subject of self harm, by the original poster or by a Moderator. The contents of this thread might therefore not be suitable for certain sensitive users. Please take this into consideration before continuing to read.

So i recently went to my normal psychologyst who was planning to discuss for me my recent testing , and aparently they were really bad, ..... i believe they were atleast 3 times as bad as the amount of points necesary for a depression to be categorized, and i had severe and extremely likely causes to having ptsd or any other traumatic disorder which i know am gonna get testing about.
So she told me it was because i had ptsd that all of my problems were like they are...
And she explained it better to me , and kept telling me it wasnt my fault, but as i read the papers i started crying because i felt really bad for myself, and even though she was tellign me it isnt my fault and that it is just my disorders fault, and that i needed medication....
but i felt like it was still my fault for being stupid ,and useless....

and so..... i went home to cut and cry depresively like for the whole day yesterday.
today im feelign a tinsy better, but my leg hurts because i cut it all over with metal sheers to try to feel better ... but i still kind of feel depressed
my theraphy has been making me depressed
how can i cope with ptsd ? and with this

Coping with ptsd can be hard. I've known a few in my life that were diagnosed with it. Proper therapy and medication will help. Also having a fairly strong support system of friends, etc will help as well. It'll take time to sort through things and find what works best for you but in the end it'll be worth it. Don't give up, keep working hard at it and you'll get through it!

Hey there,

As another whom has been diagnosed with PTSD I can speak from personal experience.

When I have a flash back I try and hold onto something to remind me that I'm not there, I'm here (where I am sitting) or I constantly play music to remind myself that I'm safe. At one time in the middle of the night when I was particularly vulnerable I was attacked by an episode and I drove it back a little but curling intoa ball and crying "no, you can't win, you can't control me" worked for about 1 minute then hurt me deeply.

But, there are many ways to deal with flashbacks, but just remind yourself that you ARE safe and it isn't happening again! When you get yourself into that routine, it'll make it at least 10 times easier to manage.

Stay strong mate,

Jay.

My blog is open to all, those whom are easily triggered avoid, it's a story about a girl and her life and how far she has come over the years. If you read it, I hope it inspires you to keep fighting and to NEVER give up!

When you can no longer think of a reason to continue, you must think of a reason to start over.
