Made it through the night, including a 2 a.m. awake bit. Need still strong though.
Waiting for garage to pick up car for service. Then supposed to be going to exercise class, but will have to walk there.

Hi PB just read your thread and thought I would reply. I too have CPTSD and was diagnosed 2 years ago and at that time I was very sick for a while and have never felt so alone in my life. I hardly slept for 6 months and had horrific nightmares I never have the type of flashback of a video playing rather more emotional flashbacks. I'm doing a bit better now I'm not in crisis but I just wanted you to know you are most definitely not alone in the way that you feel everybody has different symptoms and a big turning point for me was taking Mirtazapine before bed as it has a sedative effect and allows me to sleep even now If I forget to take it I wake up feeling panicked and can't get back to sleep. I have struggled for other forums too as they just aren't like this one. Which is very easy to navigate and I have been coming here for 15 years now. You will slowly come to terms with everything but it really is a long slow process and is probably the hardest thing you v will ever do but it does get better.  :hug1:

Thank you Tigger.
I am on duloxeteine which helps. Have been for ages, before the diagnosis and do plan to talk to my GP about medication when I next see her. She is amazing.
I started a new thread yesterday. Starting therapy. Trauma specialist. Think things will get worse before they get better.
Found some stuff online which helps.
