I've been isolating myself. Feeling like I don't belong here or anywhere. I'm having vivid flashbacks and body memories. I'm feeling very depressed.

Hi Amber. Sorry you're struggling. Are there any things you can do that help you feel grounded?

I've been trying to use the grounding exercises. But it's hard to concentrate.
I feel very scared and alone.

Are you working with a therapist or other professional that you can contact? They may be able to help you through this.

I'm trying to find a new therapist. But my primary Dr is awesome. I can call her. I had an appointment with my psychiatrist last week. She adjusted a couple of my meds.
I'll call Dr Gray this morning.

I talked with Dr Gray. She said it may take a few days to feel the med adjustments. I suppose to call her if it doesn't improve soon. Or if I get worse.
