I am 62 now, my lifelong worries have never materialized but my belief in them has stolen many years of my life.
My abuse occurred in childhood, every minute of a controlled violent existence of a kid raised by a crazy narcissist. Who knew this was not normal and everyone was not raised like this.
I call for daily practice and a tip of the spear like approach toward healing. Healing can be compressed in time with a concerted effort, along with aerobic exercise to focus on a complete body approach.
Now, this blog has a history of viewers taking action and improving or healing. Most PTSD blogs have great discussions, comparisons, stories of great perseverance but healing only happens with action not reading or discussing. Action and effort everyday is what we do here and it has led to healing.
This blog is designed for daily support of complex PTSD. Our attitudes and daily effort will determine our misery or happiness going forward. Healing is possible and likely if you do the work. You have to believe you can heal and practice that belief daily. Daily short posts, ideas, facts and inspiration are the goals I strive to bring forward. Tidbits of energy, practical tools and exercise combine all of our skills being brought to bear on our complex PTSD.
My experience healing with a severe case of childhood complex PTSD, along with reading over 100 books on this subject help me share my experiences. This blog can shorten the time needed to heal by directing attention and combining all effort in a concerted way. My path could have been cut in half with the experience I now have. That is what I try to share on this blog.
I am not a therapist, cannot heal you or try to. My work is to give direction and inspiration so you can heal yourself. You will heal yourself from within. I can help you see the landscape better and shorten your time healing.
A short disclaimer, I bring up old posts to highlight ideas, so different dates will appear on the front page at times.
