    How do I deal with PTSD alone?

    I was abused as a kid, I'm 22 now and I'm starting to get flash backs, memories etc and also feel like it's interfering with my relationships really badly. It's stopping me from sleeping at the moment. I cant talk to anyone about this at all. How do i deal with it alone? Especially just for tonight? Sorry for the lack of info I'm really tired.

    Hi buddy, try and think of other things, that's what I do, when I feel over whelmed I straight away try and think of other things, it's hard but it might work for you.

    I would recommend trying a website called Pandy's.

    https://pandys.org/

    My partner was abused (a lot) as a child, and found the website extremely useful. PTSD is simply not the same as anxiety, and needs to be treated differently.

    I would also approach your GP to start the ball rolling with counselling, with the ultimate goal being to see a therapist that specialises in PTSD. Diagnosis can be a little complicated due to variables in personal experience and resulting symptoms, but the help and resources are out there. My partner ended up seeing a specialist for nearly a year (even on the NHS) and it helped immensely.

    Thank you both so much! So glad your partner got help, ankietyjoe, that's awesome to hear. I'll check out the website. I've already been diagnosed so hopefully it won't be too complicated to get some therapy one day.
