Hi i have just started therapy with an excellent therapis after only two sessions (im 41) felt like a little of life was breathed back into me and its the first time anyone has ever sat down and actually listened with their heart and full attention that alone is such a rare and precious gift. I had tried everything for the treatment of PTSD up until now i told my therapist that i did everything you can think of to try and get out of the ark prison cell i fell into when i was 23 if im really honest my life before then wasnt a good start like so many other people i was brought up with grandparents who both died in my early teens. Life has a way of catching up to you sometimes it catches up a lot sooner than you think. My Mother has been missing for quite a number of years and my Dad doesnt want to know me. I have really good support now that is really important as i go through the healing process, i thought i would never get out ever, that i would die with a life that was largely unlived. Living with the numbness has been like trying to live in a freezer or something its been cold and empty and quite lonely at times but it IS POSSIBLE i always wanted to believe there was a way out if there was a way in and its TRUE so if you are struggling with that remember it can happen..!
