Thanks buddies!

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?

"I have PTSD, and most of my symptoms are hidden"

Oh, so true!
And we work really hard to hide what's going on inside.....
Panic when touched, is one of the things I try to hide......because it's so shameful....
What's yours?

There are lots of things that are just in our own heads, that would never leave this area unless someone ask directly.......

So, what's the big questions that you might answer if your therapist asked directly?

I've been NC with my mother and LC with my father for 8 months now. I haven't really told my son about it.  But soon he's turning 7 and he expects his grandparents to come and celebrate him......We're planning a big party with lots of his friends and his grandparents on his fathers side. How do I tell him that his maternal grandparents are not invited?  Any suggestion ?
