« on: October 30, 2019, 09:02:07 PM »
"We didn't choose trauma. We never wanted PTSD. And as much as you hate the way I can be .. I hate it more."

47 trauma survivors sat out to explain what it feels like to have PTSD/CPTSD.
Check out the result:

"I am so sorry for what you went through. I am here for you."
"I believe you."
and the mirroring thing, that's golden! I'll add that to the article! Thanks!

Oh, sounds marvelous! Internalize it with your heart and soul. Pull it out from your memory whenever needed!

Old topic, but had to answer :)

What's the most helpful and comforting someone has said to you?
What do you wish someone had said to you in different situations?

I'm writing an article and would love some help!

Thanks buddies!

My head is spinning around....:)
Would these words make sense?:

O-zone ----> Over Zone
I-zone ---> Ideal Zone
U-zone ---> Under Zone

Yeah, that makes more sense! Thanks!

Yeah, it's kinda "therapeutic" words. I was searching for pictures of the windows of tolerance and these words were on all the pictures. Your suggestions are great, but it would be nice to have one word that describes those states.

Btw, Three Roses I love your description: "CPTSD is an injury, not an illness."

Reading this post with interest. I've just tried yoga at home, so my opinion may not count. Somehow every time I try it, I fall into dissociation......Was reading an article that said yoga would help you stay out of dissociation.... I'm a bit confused.... Anyone here with another experience?

Hi! I'm trying to explain the window of tolerance for my friend. But I find hyperaroused and hypoaroused a bit wired to use... Is there a more common language that explain these things in a better way?

Oh, I feel your pain……! Been there. Wish I could help.

You’re writing well. Have you considered working from home with writing or marketing?
There’s some excellent education at

The first month is free. Enough time to learn several new skills. Then you might be a freelancer at Fiverr or something.

That sounded too simplified……..I know…….no green grass or anything, but it might be a start to get you going and get some self-confidence :)
Good luck :heythere:
