Well here we go!??!

Post by Headless12 on Wed Nov 14, 2012 9:13 am

This is the first time I've done anything like this, didn't even know it was here, but looking at the feeds I can see a lot I can identify with and not meaning to be horrible but I'm stoaked that in comparison to some, I'm either doing much better now or was very fortunate to not sink too low. A brief bit about me. I was diagnosed with depression last year and was further diagnosed with ptsd this year.

With the Depression lable, (when and how it came about) was pretty devastating for me, I felt broken, I had never felt particularly valuable but always had a sneaking note of hope lurking in the background, but that lable it just dumped me on my ass, and I really struggled with it and the implications. I when on medication that took more than a year to really be effective, we had the right medicine but had to fiddle to get the right dose. When I was diagnosed with ptsd, it felt like.......??? scratch it felt like I had been living in a shipping container forever and someone took the lid off and let light in. The second diagnosis made soooo much more sence of what I was experiencing and all of a sudden I had cause and effect and was able to create action plans to deal with triggers and bugger me I started to have input in my life again instead of being flung around in an agitator. I still don't know all my triggers so no doubt will have face plant days but I'm no where near as scared of them comming as I used to be, dear I say it but I'm almost excited for the crappy days to be able to practise new coping skills.
