It’s been almost a year since I started my journey with post-traumatic psychosis treatment. Initially, I felt overwhelmed and uncertain about what to expect, but now that I am almost done with the program, I can honestly say that it has made a life-changing difference in my life.
I started seeing a mental health professional who specialized in treating people with PTSD after a harrowing experience had left me feeling scared and confused about my future. This was especially challenging for me because I had never needed help or resources before to deal with depression or anxiety. With their help, however, I learned how to identify and manage my triggers, emotions, and coping techniques to handle difficult situations more effectively.
Learning mindfulness meditation has been especially beneficial as part of my post-traumatic psychosis treatment plan. It has allowed me to become better at attending to the present moment without allowing myself to get swept away by thoughts and worries from the past or future. Through this practice, I have also developed new perspective on events that would normally be stressful or fear-inducing; this helps keep me grounded despite all the internal chaos that can come with having PTSD.
My journey with post-traumatic psychosis treatment over the past year has been both challenging and rewarding in equal measure. While it feels like there is still much left to heal from this trauma, I have learned invaluable skills that will help me enhance my quality of life as well as develop greater resilience in battling any other mental health related issues in the future.
