Re: PTSD - Going on No Sleep - Can't talk to family
What your doctor is saying is very true. You start to remember such things when it's time to heal. That is also the reasons for flashbacks, and remembering things out of the blue one day. I hope you seek the help you need, and are able to hear from this.
I was an in abusive relationship and also suffer from PTSD, but it is much easier now, I'm so postive about it, I feel empowered, and it took me 8 years to be able to do this. Plus therapy, understanding and letting myself Live with the REGRET that it did happen, and not being stuck in the past anymore, I use to be plauged with PTSD now i'm doing really good. No more nightmares, rarely any triggers or body memories, but it was hard long road, and I think I am at the end of it now.
Good luck to you on your healing journey.
