Hi All. I've been MIA but still check in from the shadows now and then. I'm sorry that so many of you are suffering and send out prayers and butterfly hugs to you all.
I finally have great news for you all:
I graduated from seeing all providers except my Primary and Therapist. I no longer require sleep meds and I'm weaning off the Zoloft. I have only SH'd x 2 and disassociated x 2 in the past 4 months. I have a Live-In aide who helps me with my agoraphobia, my panic attacks, my Complex PTSD as she can talk me down when I'm triggered. I'm "feeling" while staying present, using those CBT/DBT skills. After 34 years of Therapy, I'm finally beginning to face the abuses of my life and issues that left me disabled mind, body and spirit.
It isn't easy and I truly do not believe I could have reached this point without all of the help I have received from my family here. Thank you all for your ongoing support and love.
If you all want to stay in touch off WebMd, I would be happy to hear from you. I'm still freaked by "trusting" issues on this site now.
Feel free to contact me at email@example.com and put from WebMd in the comment section.
