Hi I just need a bit of support and thought posting here might help. I haven’t talked to friends or anything about how I’m feeling because I’m worried they will think I’m mad.
Basically 4 years ago I was diagnosed with complex ptsd. I’m on quite a bit of medication and did thearpy etc. January I finished thearpy because I wasn’t coping with flashbacks etc. I need to be as fully functional as possible as I’m a single mum with 2 little ones.
A big part of my symptoms are feeling the works isn’t real, and people are not real. These symptoms got alot better with medication etc but since covid 19 I am now feeling proper strange.
I keep wondering if I will wake up and am dreaming all of this.
I know this sounds so odd but I’m finding it all so hard and I was just wondering if anyone else was feeling this way. I feel very confused with everything. In thearpy I had just begun to accept the world was a safe place and I was safe and I really felt kind of safe. But now I don’t feel safe at all.
I feel that the world is a cruel horrible place, so much devastation and loss with this covid 19.
This is certainly RELAPSE of PTSD, which i think is worsened by COVID. Since COVID IS not going to be around for long (hopefully) , your symptoms are relative so i advise u to seek help from your GP and perhaps few sessions of CBT will improve your condition.
Hi @Loulou1982….sorry to hear this, I hope you can the support you need at the moment. GPs are still working and treating people who need it, they’re just working in a different way. As far as I can tell they’re not all overwhelmed at this point so I’d definitely suggest giving them a call and see if you get through…nothing to feel stupid about either.
Alot can talk to you over the phone or arrange a video consultation.
You’re home alone with 2 kids (like me) with cPTSD & that’s not easy, do think about getting help xxxxx
