Arrow Third Post ...

Been at this recovery thing for quite a while now but feel as if I've been doing it all wrong somehow. I've attempted to work on it in private counseling, in group settings, at several on-line support sites - including this one a time or two.

But, I'm definitely not doing something right and keep on screwing up somehow because I feel as if I keep missing some key element that's necessary to fix all this and that until I can figure out what that is that I'm doomed to a lifetime of never becoming a whole person and if that's the case, then what's the point?

I get derailed by life so easily and each time it feels more and more hopeless!

Hi JustMe03, welcome to PC and the PTSD forum.

It can really take time to slowly heal when it comes to PTSD. It takes time to slowly gain at managing the symptoms and LOTS OF PATIENCE WITH SELF.

I think we all go through challenges in our lives and at times feel empty (not whole). Just commit to growing gaining and learning instead of trying to go back to someone you were, life just changes all of us.
