PTSD is kicking my ass - July 28th 2010, 12:31 AM

This thread has been labeled as triggering by the original poster or by a Moderator. Please take this into consideration before continuing to read.

I was raped January 20th 2010
They still havent found the guy
My supposed best friend keeps lying to my detective
saying that im the one lying
I already had PTSD
Because another best friends brother sexually harrassed me
For nine months
As a result of both trauma's I have nightmares
Every single night
Which is why I have develloped insomnia
And anxiety problems
I'm not even sure why I'm posting this
I guess I'm just scared...
That it will never stop
Help?


I'm a vegetarian who loves cheese burgers
and a smoker who hates big companies.
What can I say? I'm complicated.



My PM box is always open. <3

Try sleeping with something that makes you feel safe. If you have a pet set up their bed next to your own. My dog sleeps next to my bed so when I wake from one of my bad dreams I can reach out and bury my hand in his fur. It makes me feel safe. Also try going to sleep with calm music and taking a perfume or something that calms you. Perhaps the perfume your mother wears or your partner. If you can't think of something like that then lavender is very calming. Before you go to bed do a 'word dump' where you write everything you're thinking down before you go to sleep. This helps to empty your mind a bit.

I know its hard, and the only way to properly get rid of them is...well, years of working it through in your own head. You won't find peace for a long time yet... its just the nature of whats happened to you. It will make you stronger though.

I'm sorry about your friend.
Stay strong <3
