And my heart said no!

Posted , 3 users are following.

Hi people, I have never had such a bad reaction to something so upsetting. I have just discovered that the hospital my husband and I were at for Ivf have lied to us. I had really awful panic attacks last night 1 after the other 2/3! I am absolutely certain as this was such an horrendous time it's added to my trauma. Question is: can a PTSD counsellor deal with the fear and lack of trust on top of the assaults I'm also trying to deal with, with her or should I go? Am just so scared!

    I'm sorry Sam, I can't help you with this, I'm waiting to get diagnosed with PTSD, I see a counsellor,but not specifically PTSD, I would say try stay strong, get your mind in a good positive place, and remember, your just as good as Anyone else in the world, no-one is better than us , so shouldn't lie to us"you" , or try to bully in any way, I know it's easy me saying it, but I find when I wake up in the morning, I look in the mirror and I day to myself 5 times, I am a Lion, and repeat, and I walk around like I'm the king for the day, not looking down on anyone, just not letting anyone look down on me, I don't know if this is what you want to hear,

    Yes, there is a lot of tough days, more bad days than good, just because I see a counsellor, it doesn't mean I get better, he makes me feel better for a few hours, then I'm back to my normal anxious, scared self, and I know it's all in my "mind, imagination"" that has made my life a misery for over 30 years, I hope you get what you want, Stephen

      Sounds a bit silly, but if we was born in say 50 years in the future, and we had same issues, "problems" that we have now, there's probably a machine or injection that wipes out your past life and we'd start again with All the s**t deleted, I wish I had a delete button now, like you say, 2 steps forward, normally 3 steps back, At least we're trying, looking for help, so might get there one day, I just loved with my problems for about 25 years as I was embarrassed, ashamed of myself, for letting someone else mess my life up, and it came down to PRIDE, being a man, it was hard to talk about it, all cos of pride, what's pride?? It's only a feeling, . Anyway Goodnight Sam.
