Post Traumatic Stress Disorder & Severe Anxiety...

Posted by Roxie43 @roxie43, May 26, 2012

Have you been diagnosed with PTSD? Are you experiencing enormous amounts of added stresses that exacerbate your condition and make you feel anxious all the time?
PTSD is a medical disorder that sadly has profound effects on the individuals life. I recently found out, by one of my provider’s that panic attacks can even occur when we are sleeping. I never knew this but it explained why I get up in the middle of the night feeling like my breathing has stopped and I need air. I sleep with a fan in my face year round for aging reasons so I’m getting plenty of air. I also participated in a sleep study to ensure that I did not have Sleep Apnea but I don’t.
Waking up like this is very scary and at times I’m afraid of falling asleep. I’m glad that I mentioned it to one of my psychiatrists because not knowing what was happening was inducing even more discomfort and anxiety.
When we are the victims of traumatic experiences and/ or are re-traumatized life can become so uncomfortable but please keep in mind that; If, we were strong enough to survive the traumatic experience/s we are all the more powerful in our continued efforts to heal!
Our faith will be tested as well as our self worth but don’t waiver my friends because we are survivors and this too will be an opportunity for us to show just how passionate we are about deserving meaningful lives.
Hugs,
Roxie ~

Still at the library :-(.
I waited all morning yesterday and my provider stated that I was not scheduled to have a technician come fix the problems. I was told tomorrow morning. What timing? I still don’t know about mom…sleep has not been great

The last thing that a person needs is to be judged for not being able to be on a computer day and night. While I enjoy being online with the many friends that I have made, or thought I made, a thunderstorm had me without power. NO PHONE, NO INTERNET……
It saddens me that people can turn against one another over the inability to communicate.
Nonetheless, I am waiting to hear from my moms partner so he can tell me how the procedure went.

There are wonderful people here all with different issues, but at the end of the day what makes this site so special is that at times we do make error of judgement but we are not judgemental of one another, we are all so special and unique and always will be. Piglit

Hello. I think that a conservative number is one in five women and 1 in 6 men have suffered abuse and trauma. You are never alone. I also have it and have struggled with it for years.

Hi Lain,
Thank you for sharing with me. I know I am not alone and this is why I joined this site. I just wish the panic attacks were less frequent. How are things with Tristan?
Hugs,
