You can do this. Hang in there. I know too well what the PTSD is like. It feels like you're going crazy, I know it does. I've scared my therapist to the point he was going to have campus security come check on me to make sure I was ok. But you're not going crazy. Take it one second at a time, and you'll get through it. It comes and goes. Remember how good you felt a few weeks ago? That feeling will come back.

I've been struggling a lot lately with feeling like I'm fooling everyone around me by looking like I'm doing well. But your therapist knows the truth and we at Babble know the truth. I don't think you've fooled anyone here. You've been very candid and honest.

One coping mechanism I have that really can numb me is to go on Youtube and just watch videos. I like cooking videos especially, but there are so many good ones. One person that just happens to be really funny, I think, and family-friendly funny so I don't *think* it would be triggering (it's not for me, but everyone's different) is nalts. Maybe check out some videos there and see if that helps. I can focus on it more than tv and it's not so loud and overwhelming.

The other thing I do is draw. I don't know if that would help you or not.

Hang in there Llurpsie. We care about you.
