My PTSD is back


Iíd been doing so well.

No drinking for 3 plus years, gone part-time at work and started training as a counsellor for children and Young people.

Somehow, a perfect s***storm of stressors...my Mum being very ill, work stress, my brother being suicidal, and some conflict on my Counselling course...and the flashbacks are back.

Iím SO disappointed to be back living in fear and anxiety again. I canít concentrate on anything, Iím not sleeping and having panic attacks.

Iím hoping this is just a bad spell and I will come out the other side much quicker than I have before, but Iím so sad right now

Drinking will kill me. If I start thinking any differently, it's a lie.
