Title: I had to let her go - to triggering
Post by: Boatsetsailrose on November 28, 2015, 09:19:53 AM
Last Saturday I went into emotional flashback and I'm still in it - 1 week later

She made judgement about me and smaller judgements and bam sent into the turbulent world of complex ef -
This week any judgement / opinion from others has just increased it

My symptoms
Racing heart
Paranoid
Want to isolate
Low mood
Anxiety / fear
Dread
Terror re others triggering me

Help please !!!

I let the 'friendship go yesterday - I can't be around judgemental - lack of middle ground people
I'm noticing I get attracted to sickly nice and narcissistic people ---

much support to you, Boatssr, you have done the right thing, protecting yourself.  :thumbup: :thumbup:
 
it is hard to manage the flashbacks, isn't it? but don't forget you're feeling all these feelings at super-strength at the moment,  and though it's hard, you are handling it sensibly and well. so respect!

know what you mean about attracting toxic types, though, i am the same!   :stars:  we're learning, hopefully!   :yes:  look after yourself with kindness, dear heart!   :hug: :hug:
