Complex PTSD Survivors

MH nurse doing home visit tomo


hope you’re all well. I have mental health nurse doing home visit tomorrow and I’m going to try my hardest to admit to self harm/distress I have felt this week. It’s at 3:00 tomorrow. We also going through and making a care plan so labour is managed best way possible with ptsd triggers so hopefully goes well.

Has anyone else done one of these care plans and have any advice ?

Take care, me :)

Good luck with the appointment Starlight. Easier said than done I know, but like you say, try and be honest with the Nurse about your self harm / distress. The care plan should be about YOU. It will be about how you feel you can best be helped and ways to reduce your levels of distress. The nurse will help you come up with some strategies. You will talk together about the problems you have, set some realistic goals and make a little plan to help you though this.

Let us know how it goes.

I admire you. The thought of giving birth can't be easier and I know can be a major trigger for some. It is not something I have done, but I can imagine it could be a major PTSD trigger.

Good luck with the MH Nurse. Am sure he or she will be very nice
