Cptsd night

For some reason I don't wanna go to the bedroom despite being shit tired. It felt like it was a police tape over the entry.

And staying in the living room 3 am in the night all in darkness except this screen doesn't feel right either. But it's where I'm used to "run" in my past.

Nothing feels good. I think that's my issue right now.

I’m sorry. I hate those nights. Try to have compassion for yourself. It kept you safe at one point. I try to not fight against it in the moment, and just know it will end, and there will be nights soon that will be ok. It’s ok

@Queendragonfly I'm just going to go and lay down and meditate myself to sleep shortly

@Ferric67 That's great ❤️ is it guided meditation ? I try to lay down but I don't feel safe. So I sit up in bed. Prepared for something.

Im so sorry you deal with that.. your right thats not a healthy environment

@GuyWithOpinions Wow I'm so happy to hear that! ❤️💚

The trick is to remember the healthy strategies while in need, and not get stuck in the alligator water so to speak.

You're doing great 💚❤️

CPTSD is shit. Try to be compassionate with yourself because it's not your fault and I hope it passes soon, though I don't know how long the spells last in your case and what strategies you use, bless you.

If nothing feels good anymore, maybe it’s time to talk to a professional?

Been there, stay strong 💪🏻

Make a cozy spot for yourself, turn the screen off
Queendragonfly · 31-35, F
@WaryWitchWandering Turning the screen off is the last thing I wanna do. Then I'll feel completely alone and in danger and no distraction or support. I don't feel cosy I feel afraid.

I find it hard to live at peace with unsolved problems.

Why would you not want to go to your bedroom?
Im so sorry you are struggling

Courage my dear :)
It's ok. Sometimes you just have to follow your comfort limits.

I have nights I feel more comfortable on the couch ...I dunno why , I love my bed .
But of that's where I feel I'll sleep the best ...I stay there .

You're still home ....and that's good 🤗
