Heya Jeni, I got c-PTSD(documented elsewhere @SR).
I will be moving forward in any particular day, never entirely free of anxiety, but OK- then for no apparent conscious reason- my anxiety will spike.
The human condition to me, includes sometimes - 2 steps forward, then one back....with new stressors- comes new neural connections and my brain trying to make sense of it all.
The anxiety and stuff- cannot kill me and if I can choose to work through it- it usually becomes bearable.
I feel guilt at such times- berating myself with that little voice inside my head about failures- then to put the boot in- flashbacks.

This just means I am adapting, and being aware of it- is a big step.

As you are doing.

Try not to be hard on yourself- you are doing fine.

Support to you.
