Sane and Psycho Marty (PTSD)

.
My PTSD Marty is a psycho, vengeful, he still feels the pain, it is alive for him.

He is irrational, at times blind with rage, or freaked out hiding in solitude.

He sees danger everywhere, knows what evil has done in the past, he is guarded, closed off, and skittish.

Prone to hiding out, isolating, avoiding, or acting out, isolation is always the final destination.

The sane me is more present, more active, more people-friendly.

He can converse and persuade at times, tell jokes and be extroverted in the right environment.

He is part of this two-headed person. Some friends have seen both these guys, sometimes on the same visit.

The PTSD Marty can appear instantly without any input from sane Marty.

It is the rollercoaster ride, the PTSD Marty leaves residue and damages the real me has to endure and try to fix.

Ptsd Marty brings pain, suffering, worry, doubt, unworthiness, and rage.

It is part of life I have had to accept or suffer more.

Know your PTSD, what you are like when he/she is activated.

Can you shorten the time PTSD occupies your mind?

At times I can shut it down, other times I get lost like everyone else.

Takes daily practice.

Our daily work will never end if we want to have peace of mind.

    There are so many Parts. Often it’s crazy-making trying to reconcile these multiple felt personas into a whole human. I’ve often wondered will the “real” Rudid step forward. My coach has just begun working towards helping me remain calm, present, and curious. I’ve far more experience running from myself and numbing.

    Thanks for the offer. I shared my email after an earlier invitation but never heard back. Perhaps you could post here the link to the Kundali meditation group?

  6. I feel so bad Rudid96.

    I looked and looked for ur email and did not see it

    I missed it

    I would never ignore you

    I am so sorry

    You have followed me for so long

    Saddens me

  7. I see my inaction of responding to your email triggered you but you still follow and trust at some level

    The PTSD mind is irrational

    I feel terrible

    Help me

    Mindful Marty, thank you for the information. Initially, way back, when a response wasn’t forthcoming, you’re correct, it was triggering. However, as you’ve so often shared here, so much of life is perception. After sitting with my thought, I realized this was an opportunity to breathe into life as it unfolded. The space afforded a worthwhile pause. As you can see, I still read and participate in the blog. You do so much good. The anonymity makes it easier to be vulnerable and still maintain connections. So my friend, no worries. 🙂

  9. It is not easy from this side

    I have experienced people following and participating for over a year, and then one day, it’s like it was all a mirage.

    Hard to know what’s real from my vantage point Somedays

    Yes, that’s the Ying and Yang of life thru a screen. Virtual connectivity has its limitations for sure. I know it’s not easy from your side. Virtual friendships require a level of commitment and even then, there’s no assurance they won’t evaporate. I mentioned a while back that this was also my experience. It really hurt. BUT, I keep on ticking….

  11. I truly tried to connect with you by email
