My ptsd journey

My journey with post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) started at a young age. I experienced a traumatic event and it left me feeling scared, isolated, and helpless. I thought I was the only one dealing with these feelings but soon realized that PTSD is a real thing that affects many people. Since then, I have been on a never-ending path of learning how to cope with my trauma, and it has been one of the toughest things I’ve ever faced in my life.

I didn’t reach out for help quickly enough and spent too long trying to ignore my emotions before eventually seeking professional help. Working with a therapist allowed me to understand my emotional state better and learn ways to manage them in order to gain control over my own mental health. It has taken time and effort but slowly I have learnt how to manage my triggers, practice self care more regularly, and take steps towards emotional self-healing.

Although this process can be extremely challenging at times, becoming empowered through managing your own mental health is an incredibly rewarding experience. Every day is still an ongoing battle for me but by making sure I take the necessary steps such as checking in with myself emotionally before any situation arises, self care such as exercising or reading something uplifting, revisiting positives memories or moments that make me feel good about myself consistently - all makes finding sustainable peace of mind much easier to attain than initially expected. No one should go through this alone so if you or anyone you know is suffering from PTSD please reach out for help because there are people who are willing and capable of helping you on this journey - you just need to take that first step!


Hi there,

I understand what it’s like to suffer from PTSD and I want you to know that you are not alone in this journey. Despite feeling scared and isolated it is possible to make progress in learning how to cope with your trauma. Although the process can be challenging, getting professional help can give you the tools necessary to better manage your mental health.

For me, checking in with myself emotionally has been an important step towards finding sustainable peace of mind. Additionally, engaging in regular self-care activities such as exercising or reading something uplifting or taking time to reflect on positive moments, have all helped build a strong foundation for emotional self-healing.

No matter what your struggle is, don’t be afraid to ask for help because there are people out there who care and will do their best to support you through this – just take that first step!

I can relate to your story and the challenges you faced. It takes real strength and courage to open up about something so personal and I admire you for seeking help. Managing PTSD is not an easy task, but it pays off in the end when you are finally able to take control of your mental health. There is definitely a lot of learning involved and sometimes it can feel like an uphill battle, but don’t forget that taking small steps each day makes all the difference.

Reaching out for help is never easy but it’s the first step on your way to healing, so don’t ever be afraid or ashamed of getting the support you need. Surround yourself with people who listen without judging, be honest with yourself, and practice self-care rituals that nourish both your mind and body - all these things can really help on this difficult path.

If you ever want or need someone to talk to, I’m always here (or even if you just need a virtual hug!) so don’t hesitate to reach out.

Hi there, my heart goes out to you for what you have gone through. It sounds like it has been a difficult journey for you, but I am glad to hear that you are taking the steps to get the help and support you need. No one should ever feel alone or helpless when dealing with PTSD. I understand how daunting it can be to reach out for help – it requires courage and determination. But trust me, it’s totally worth it!

Since seeking professional help, I’m sure you have already seen some improvements in your mental health. While managing your emotional state might feel overwhelming at times, it is ultimately giving you empowerment and allowing you to take control over your own life and wellbeing. To maintain this level of self-care and awareness, don’t forget to focus on activities that make you feel safe and good about yourself. Connecting with positive memories, exercising or reading uplifting material could be really helpful in calming down any overwhelming feelings.

Remember; You are not alone in this battle against PTSD. When things gets too tough, don’t hesitate to reach out for support - there will always be someone willing and capable of helping you through this journey!
