I think I need to dismantle the “memories” feature on my phone. At least until I can delete all of the memories of my ex. I get a blast of anxiety every time her face surprises me on my phone.

All I can see is an imposter of a human that likely never really cared much about me beyond being a tool for 20 years.

Why do I often feel depression free at night but when I wake up in the morning, I feel majorly depressed. There is something about the night that brings relief. I truly wish I knew what it was. I don't think about the impending day. I just lie in bed relaxed until i fall asleep.

When I fall asleep, it's often a crap shoot as to whether they will be vivid and crazy or PTSD ones that will wake me up in cold sweats. Last night was the former. I hope tonight will be the latter.

I keep hearing dream control is possible. I've yet to try it; might have to use google for suggestions. I cannot imagine that it is easy but I'd like to start somewhere. #sleep #ptsd #nightmares #nightterrors

I've been incredibly focused on staying calm for half a week, using my watch as a guide, and prioritizing calming activities, meditation, analog, over digital obsessions, quieting my cacophonic mind.

And my reward? I've been experiencing even further cognitive decline and fatigue. I'm back to thinking through mud.

To avoid getting discouraged, I'm promoting the theory that my body and mind aren't used to operating on such low adrenal levels, and that after some time of feeling worse, I'll adjust, and things will start improving.

The struggle is the point. I can't stop struggling, because then what?

Before I came back, I asked a leading expert on #PTSD whether there was a way to build resilience before a traumatic event…

… and whether there are scientifically-backed ways to stave off PTSD before it gets a hold.

She made a couple suggestions: understand that you cannot always control life events, for one.

After a traumatic event, or series of events, caffeine and alcohol don't work particularly well.

Sleep to recover does.

@ItsTrainingCatsAndDogs I am convinced it's #PTSD & repeated burnouts is c-PTSD. After my second most recent one, I had a seizure, I developed nerve twitches under even the tiniest stress, and after my most recent one, developed a stutter under stress and my brain would just struggle with everything. Everything was too much. I felt like a broken robot. Treated like a machine instead of a human. Struggled to find all the things that made me feel alive. I got trauma-informed therapy which helped.

"With Gentle Affect - Surviving Trauma"

Written with gentle affect and love for all:
Words can be a powerful thing. Sometimes we may say something unintentionally that can open the wounds of another. The range of emotion conjured, may sometimes be manifest in response. Sometimes it's an acquired instinct.

In a world that has become so full of hate, there are many that have survived great trauma. Words that may seem innocent, can be like thrusting the sharpest of double-edged swords, slashing open the heart's healing scars. Sometimes, if one pokes the hive, the bee is likely to sting out of instinctual self-preservation. It's important to be mindful of others we encounter. Only they may know the shadows that haunt within them.

Being an advocate is not an easy task. You're basically telling people what they may do is not right but, without advocacy, where does #change lie? Taking the brunt and standing firm for others that may not have the strength? If one day it may help to prevent others with invisible disabilities from being subjected, how can I remain silent.

With that said, the last time I checked, I'm human too. I have a brain, a heart and everything. I also don't harbor bitterness or resentment... It messes up the atmosphere inside.[]

"If one breaks one's leg, they may have trouble walking, patience and understanding is key. The same is true for the brain.
Today's installment was going to be about the brain and spelling. There's link to an interesting article below. I always welcome kind correction and thoughtful constructive feedback.

Turns out I probably have PTSD with regards to my circumcision...
This explains a lot.

The nightmares I had for years before my dreams stopped altogether, the emotion based flashbacks, why I get uncontrollably angry on the topic when it's discussed, why I don't date and have trouble trusting people...

Circumcision based fear of further trauma made me so afraid of traditional bottom surgery that I told myself that I could never transition so coming out as Trans would be pointless. I knew when I was 16 and I suppressed my gender identity for so long that I missed all of the major milestones growing up. I will never get that time back. It drove me to the point of attempting suicide twice (I chickened out both times at the last second) and the third time I got as far as writing my suicide note before I sought help.

Until about 3 weeks ago I still wanted to kill myself.
I just wanted to taste gender euphoria before I died...

People who are not #CSA survivors have no idea why motorcycle gangs still protect child sexual assault survivors, especially those predated by their own fathers, well into adulthood.

They fundamentally cannot understand what it means to be a survivor. They just want to make the evidence and scars disappear: even if it means getting rid of the survivor.

Roll up your sleeves. Show off them scars.

Do you want to know why I look at predators with too much love?

Because I was raised by predators who looked at me with hate so often that I think blown out pupils and long stares means they're attracted.

Because they are.

If you want to make an apex predator hunter you have to find someone who was preyed upon by apex predators. It is a horrifying and unfortunate truth.

#WritersCoffeeClub 9.1 — Shameless Self Promotion.

I’m suffering from major depression and PTSD for about 20 years now and initially role-played via TTRPG, later via MMORPGs to balance it out in some ways. But after dealing with MMORPGs became increasingly problematic with hate-speech, envy and jealousy, I turned away from them again, focused more on TTRPG and especially started writing about the character because I was too sad about leaving her just to vegetate.
Soon this particular character from my head will turn 16 years old soon and has developed immensely. Initially, a very “basic” character with little backstory, hardly any specific appearance, I now write about her in a diary style at
Especially in the last 4 years, she evolved incredibly from a character used for short role-playing sessions to a detailed personality with likes, dislikes, strengths, weaknesses. So far, my story about her describes love, hate, loss, gain and much more.
But to ensure that my stories don’t just fire imaginations, I love to commission artists to provide visual support for my stories. And even the bullying of certain administrators, moderators and other piss poor minions, even here in Fediverse, does not stop me. On the contrary. Because of some loyal artists, I can continue to provide visual support with the advantage that these artworks have a consistent style and thus the recognition value is significantly higher.

When I am not in my Dungeons & Dragons based world, I am pursuing my hobby, but also my job, as a web developer and Linux system administrator.

Extreme weather is a cause of post-traumatic stress

"The definition of PTSD is that an extremely threatening event has been experienced by the person themselves or by someone close to them, and this event is at the center of their problems," Meyer-Lindenberg says. A typical symptom is that a disaster is relived over and over again in the form of flashbacks, dreams, and memories.

This morning, I'm having to remind myself that nothing is more important than one's own mental health.

Now matter how much you feel like compromising that is necessary, you should always prioritize your mental health and well-being. To fail to do so creates suffering significantly worse than any feeling of rejection or exclusion can effect.

Even if being alone were the result of being uncompromising in this regard, and it rarely is, the loneliness is still better than the result of compromising oneself.

It's tough to remember that in the moment. But if I sit for a moment and think about all the times I have made compromises like these, it's much easier to see why none of them were worth making.

For any reason.

One day I'll have sufficiently healed from my #PTSD that I won't need to have such rigid #boundaries where I've needed to lay some down. That'll be a good day, but that day is not this day.

This piece has its foundation in an incident two years ago, when I was physically attacked while standing up for my daughter against a vicious bully - her uncle, no less. I was deeply troubled by the injustice and violence of the attack, which plays in flashback when I am asleep and returns to me unbidden at unexpected times. This artwork is an attempt to come to terms with what happened and its aftermath.

Today I discovered that not only is July #Disability Pride Month but also that we have a flag. It is so well done and extremely meaningful. It was created by Ann Magill, a disabled writer.

The entire thing will not fit into the thumbnail but if you open the image, it will tell you what each color and flag feature stands for. It is also in the alt text if you are unable to open it.

#disabled #accessibility #cerebralpalsy #adhd #autism #OCD #PTSD #bipolar #depression #invisibleillness (& more!)

An infographic showing the Disability Pride Month flag and what it stands for. The top reads "Disability Pride Month" and the flag is underneath it. The Disability pride flag is grey with five diagonal stripes from top to bottom with red, yellow, white, blue, and green.

Underneath it, it says what the colors stand for.
Red: bodily disability, mobility impairment, limb difference, disfigurement, chronic pain/fatigue, etc. 

Yellow: Neurodiversity, autism, ADHD, dyslexia, etc

White: invisible disabilities and those with no known diagnosis. 

Blue: emotional and psychiatric disabilities, (depression, anxiety, bipolar disorder, etc.)

Green: sensory disabilities, (including sensory processing disorders)

Grey: Mourning for those killed, neglected, and abused because of their disability. 

The five-stripe bend dexter: The disability community in solidarity-- moving from the Canton (a place of honor) to the Fly (the wider world, broader society). The diagonal is also in contrast to the vertical walls and horizontal ceilings that keep us isolated.

"Y, por supuesto, volqué gran parte de mí en Jun. Creo que todos los autores ponen mucho de sí mismos en sus personajes, especialmente en sus protagonistas. El lado solitario de Jun, su ansiedad social, su voluntad de encontrar su lugar en la sociedad al tiempo que ansía la independencia, son cosas con las que me identifico con fuerza. Creo que son sentimientos compartidos por muchas personas, y quería que Jun los experimentara.

#Introduction - guess it’s time to do this. Or attempt to.

Residing in the beautiful #PNW. After being laid off I’ve taken time off for #selfcare. I love getting around by not-a-car.

I deal with #ptsd and #dpdr. This is my first time really putting this out there but the community here seems very open about #mentalHealth.

During times of employment I work in #tech as a #devops engineer.

#Anticapitalist, pro-people, #antiprofit.

Oh, and follow @lisamelton to get a good feed going!
