... glad you got some meds - hope they help - heres a tip for the heat and sleeping - if you dont have air con and I dont :( a fan by the bed helps and then one of those plant water spray bottles on a fine mist - spray it into the wind from the fan and it helps you get back to sleep - and this one may sound crazy but hot water bottles filled with ice water help too.
Hope you... (9 replies)
... Hi guys,
Thanks for your replies, I havent managed to sleep properly yet but i'm not sure if thats to do with the PTSD or with the heatwave we are having over here at the moment.

... its hard to deal with things when you are triggery - if possible i try to take myself away from the person who is making me angry if there is no cause or if I am not able to handle it at the time - then when I am calm I will discuss it with them - can you discuss it with your teacher ?
Hows your dog going? I hope the meds have kicked in and she feels great!

Vent all you want girl, that is why we are here. I am so sorry hon! I hope your Dr. is able to prescribe you something that will work, or at least aid in controlling some of the things you are going through. What type(s) of meds are you seeking? (depression, bipolar type, anxiety, etc) It all kind of ties in together but everyone is different. Some have all... (9 replies)

... Hi MBC hun,
A T isn't there to judge you or think about in as dirty or soiled, they are there to listen and help you work through your issues slowly.
You ain't a dirty soiled person, i've never met u irl but on these boards you are the most kind considerate person i've met and i certain wish u all the luck in the world with the new T **fingers crossed for you**

... Hello MBC:
The most important thing at this point is that the therapist know your history. They are not there to judge you but to help.
Remember that you are receiving therapy to help with quality of life issues not because you have to but because you want better for yourself.

Crying is not necessarily the worse thing at this point.
You are identifying specific emotions with events.
