As for my therapist...she is on holiday right now. So our appointment has been cancelled. Too bad, I almost wept.

Well keep you posted ASA I see her!

((((Ras))) Aren't you sweet? Thank you so much for your thoughts and Prayers. What movies was that? I am doing better during the day now. I am able to calm myself down and not get panicky. The nights are another story all together. As soon as I close my eyes (at least it feels like it), the dreams begin. So I wake up very tired and restless. But I am grateful that my bosy is healing itself. I have been trying to journal the dreams and it feels better after I do it. I am determined to let this thing run it's course. Thank you so much for asking!

I'm glad hon you're feeling better. The movie entitled "The return of Alex Kelly," based on a true story that took place in the US. I really recommend all those who have been sexually abused or even abused of any sort to watch this movie. You would identify with what Cary, the female victim, felt and been thru. The PTSD etc. The end of the movie is happy and fair. She wins her case and Alex, the abuser, goes to prison.

I love it so much when Justice wins at the end even if it takes years to materialize! Hooooooooooray!!!

Hi Ras, Thank you for the well wishes. I am hanging in there. The days are much better but the nights are still quite horrific. I wonder how long these are supposed to last. Does anyone know how to break this cycle. I mean practical things...?

Don't know hon. I'm waiting for my therapist to come back from hoiliday. Our appointment was, sadly, cancelled due to her holiday. She will call me back when she's back. I can hardly wait to discuss with her PTSD and its consequences and wether they stop or continue for ever.

I wonder if there is any book that discusses PTSD? Any one folks knows about this material???

Wait Fantas, I will google it and get back to you!

Ras ~

I have lived with PTSD now for 30 years, in my case, it has never gone completely away. Still hoping, I am interested in what your therapist says. I am talking to mine about everything and also seeing if there is a "cure" or at least things that can be done to lessen it. I have 'triggers', then my PTSD, then the panic attacks, then the migraines but not so much now, and then I would be to some degree, more or less, depressed. It a cycle which I have not been able to stop. I hate it!

I will also keep everyone informed on what my therapist says helps with PTSD. Hopefully we can pool 'ideas' or 'cures' to see what works, what doesn't.

Thanks RB for the feedback. I am a hopeful person and believe that PTSD is treatable and it can even eventually vanish.

Bottom line is...to surround ourselves with kind and supportive folks who know about this case and its consequences.

I too, will definitely keep you briefed about my 1st encounter with my therapist asa she calls me and fixes an appointment with me.

Oh and watching movies about abuse and its effects is definitely very healing & therapeutic. I've been watching a number of them and can't believe how much I empathized with the victims and have seen how they suffer with PTSD be it nightmares, panic attacks...you name it. It was all an eye-opener to me that I was not alone!

Ras and Red, thank you. Can't wait to hear what your therapist says Ras. I guess there is still alot we do not know about the mind. I will continue to believe that this is a healing process and when Iam healed, it will stop. It's so annoying and frustrating though:)
