“This blog post describes perfectly the life of a person living alongside trauma. Life is parceled out. ( this is the referenced post, https://cptsdawayout.com/2022/03/22/a-day-in-the-life-of-a-ptsd-guy/

I may begin the day grounded but must remain vigilant.

Anything or anyone may shatter the careful calm I’ve worked so hard to cultivate.

Every moment can be tinged with anxiety.

I feel more comfortable with people that understand PTSD and C-PTSD.

Adorning the public mask can be weary.

I can be spontaneous and just as quickly retreat in silence.

I can laugh freely or be consumed by the desire to self-harm.

Being authentic is an ongoing process.

Being in fellowship with others that are actively working at coping with life while navigating trauma is bonding.

I need space, alone time, and exercise.

Listening daily to carefully selected trauma coaches helps me balance and feel less isolated.


What are the criteria for taking risks? Time, proven reliability, support, shame deflectors.


How hard is it to go out when triggered? I’ve learned to cope by dissociating.

I tuck it all in and when alone, fall apart.

It manifests later as depression and self-harm.”
