3 years ago I was diagnosed as having Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD). This was because of an event back in 2009/2010. I manage my PTSD with medication but the truth is there is no “cure” for it. Yes it is possible to effectively manage the symptoms but its one of those things I will always have.
In the last 18 months I have started to move forward and focus more on here and now. What happened in the past is something that I tend not to talk to a lot of people about unless I feel comfortable. This is because I am very aware that bringing it to the front of my mind runs the risk of setting me back.
So why am I writing this about Trauma? The issue is that it is a mental health problem, because of that we tend to shy away from it. I have a lot of anxiety, and basically I know that I can be a pain in the arse to deal with. I am overly critical of myself and feel that I have to prove myself all the time.
