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,

PTSD can actually be re-triggered by horrible new events. Please, all take care of yourself and if someone or something is causing you additional pain just distance yourself.

Exercise is wonderful if you have the drive the push yourself. I am lacking in this at this time.
