Too often, trauma survivors keep their bad days hidden because they’re worried about what people will think, even though the bad days are when you need help the most.
I have definitely done this due to hurtful things people said to me in the past after confiding my PTSD in the wrong people.
I’ve been told I need to let my sexual abuse go…that I have control over my thoughts, so if I’m reliving the trauma it’s because I want to or that I’m seeking attention /sympathy. I’ve been told I’m crazy, too dark, or just plain hopeless.
Find people who will work to understand you and love you through your bad days.
