Sorry it's so rough right now, Daisy. I second Wacky's suggestion of grounding yourself by using every sense- sight, hearing, touch, smell- to ground yourself in the safe here-and-now. I think this can help so much when you are working on past traumas. It helps your body know that that was THEN, and this is now, and you are safe.

Another thought I have: I never had good luck at all with any SSRI's. AP's or tricyclics, but my analyst, who usually doesn't prescribe anything, finally (in frustration) wrote me a prescription for Lithium, just 450 mg. a day. That and Cytomel are all I take now. It just happens to really suit me; I do feel grounded, and able to deal better with all the stuff that's coming up endlessly in therapy. I don't know what medications you have taken, or what has worked best so far. I had the idea you might be taking Lamictal, but I'm not sure.
