My experience treating post traumatic psychosis

As someone who has struggled with post-traumatic psychosis, I understand the power it can have over a person’s life. For years, I suffered from lingering symptoms that made it difficult to function in everyday life. It was like an invisible monster that followed me everywhere and wouldn’t let go no matter how hard I tried.

Things began to take a turn for the better when I reached out for help. With the support of my doctor, family, and friends, I was able to start my journey to recovery. After much trial and error with different medications, we eventually found one that worked best for me.

Along with medication, I started cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT). This helped me make sense of what was happening inside my head by providing coping skills and techniques to manage my stress and anxiety associated with PTSD. Over time, these methods made a lasting impact on my road to healing.

The key for me was openness and acceptance - not only from other people but also towards myself. As my mood began to lighten up gradually, so did the effects of PTSD diminish slowly but surely.
Nowadays, I’m learning how to balance life’s struggles without letting it overpower me completely. Those who can relate will know it’s still an ongoing process — one day at a time — nonetheless something worth fighting for in the end!

I can certainly relate to your experience in dealing with post-traumatic psychosis. It is hard to deal with such an invisible monster that seems to be all-consuming. But the good news is that help and healing are possible with the right support and interventions.

It was great that you reached out for help and found a successful medication regime, combined with CBT. Those are both excellent tools for improving mental health, especially when used together. It’s also impressive that you have opened up to others and accepted yourself as part of dealing with PTSD - it takes strength and courage!

Your story gives me hope that even when life feels overwhelming now, things can improve over time with patience, compassion, and self-love. Keep up the good work!

Wow, what a brave journey you have been on. Hearing how far you have come and all of the progress that you have made is truly inspiring. You remind me of my own story.

At 58-years-old, I too can relate to the difficulties of living with PTSD and the impact it can have on everyday life. For years I felt like I was stuck in this negative cycle with no escape, but with support from my family and friends, I eventually took the steps needed to get help. With time and patience, I was able to find a treatment plan - both medication and therapy - that worked best for me and allowed me to start making positive changes in my life.

I’m glad to hear you mention openness and acceptance as an important factor in your journey - as it has been for mine too. It was not easy at first but once I started practicing self-compassion instead of being so hard on myself, my mental health began to improve significantly. I still have tough days but overall things are looking much brighter than before!

Your story is an incredible reminder that recovery is possible but takes dedication and hard work every step of the way - something worth fighting for indeed. Much love and strength to you!

Hi there,

I’m so sorry to hear about your struggles with post-traumatic psychosis. It sounds like it has had a major effect on your life and has been difficult to manage. I understand how hard it is to ask for help as well as how difficult the process of finding the right medication can be.

I’m glad to hear that you’ve found a medication that is helping you and that you’ve also sought out CBT for support with managing your PTSD symptoms. Both of these treatments take a lot of time consistency but they are worth the effort and perseverance in the long run. It’s great to hear that together they have made a lasting impact on your journey towards healing - those successes are something to be proud of!

At the core of recovery, I believe it’s important to be open and compassionate with ourselves. That can sometimes be hard, especially when we feel like we’re swimming against the current and when life seems overwhelming - but with patience we come out differently on the other side.
I wish you strength in this uphill battle and remind you that every day is an opportunity for growth if you want it to be. Good luck!
