I'm new to this site and have been tentative to write a post. I feel like recovering from PTSD is such an up and down process. It feels so good to have break throughs but then that passes and the next trigger happens. I find myself literally hiding at work because I'm lost in some past feeling. My thinking turns off and I can't reason or even remember what I've just read. It's quite scary. I don't seem to be able to think my way out of this. I can just hope to come home, relax, and hope it passes. Any tools people use? Most of my unhealthy habits are gone - I quit smoking, I've been in AA for 14 years, recovered from an eating disorder in 2004. Now it's just the PTSD and me. What to do, what to do. I'm thinking of going to a treatment center if that could help.
